The new paint has been drying for a couple of days. The entire bathroom actually looks OK except the edges where the tape was pulled off. Only some of the edges (ceiling and floor moulding) peel off like a sticker but not entire sheet. I'd hate to leave the bathroom with messy paint job around the edges. I want to sell the place soon and it just makes the bathroom look really cheap.
Now that I look at it, it might be better to do a touch up job - peel off edges where I can, re-tape, paint the edges again. I will try joewho's suggestion on using a razor blade to separate the tape before pulling it to avoid further stripping. Not sure how even it'll turn out though.
How long am I supposed to wait before taking the tape off when using semi-gloss paint? I took the tape off last time after overnight but perhaps the paint wasn't completely dried up around the edges and came off with the tape.
Thanks for all your comments!
