Cutting a wall?


Thanks to everyone for their help. The walls in the room look great. I actually only put on one coat of color. I put a second coat on one of the walls, and it doesn't look any different from the one-coaters... Is there a larger reason to apply the second coat?

Also, I will never use painter's tape (aka, blue tape) again! It pulled up chunks of paint from around my windows. I'm not entirely sure how I will fix that...short of just touching up over and around it. My concern is that it will now bubble where it was lifted off the primer...

Does anyone have a recommendation for touching up these areas? Should I take a razor blade and remove more of the paint until it is at a point where it is sticking to the wall and then touch it up?

Yes, though a putty knife will do just fine
The razor might go to far
If it's what you got, it'll be OK just be careful
