I suspect waking up, looking in the mirror and seeing paint peeling from the trim in the reflected image too was just more than she could handle.

Modeling is a tough profession and realizing your days in it are over must be hard.

I just painted my kitchen & I used Frog tape painters tape. It was left on only 10 hours untill I took the tape down. Well, it totally ruined my wall !!! The paint piled off while I was removing it. I got pics if you want to see. (Theres not a way I on here I can send them.)
Last week I painted my door & the same thing happened. I assumed maybe it was cause I used a latex paint.
Well, after doing another room & the same thing happened, I'm convienced its Frog tape !!!
Today I painted my kitchen. Same brand of paint, different color. I used another brand of painters tape & it turned out beautiful !!!
Just thought I'd let you know.

if you leave painters tape on too long, it will adhere much stronger and may remove the paint.

I had that blue painters tape on a wall in my closet over night and it pealed the paint off. I'm counting it as cheap paint.

also, if darn near ANY tape is pulling the paint off there is a prep problem, it is not the tape

Neither of which would have made any difference in this case. If anything, it would have made it worse.
