But I've got this.
In addition to laying down painter's tape, I've been using a wide scraper to push the carpet away so I can neatly edge. I have a larger edger too (maybe meant for carpets?), but it proved too big and unwieldy so I switched to this. I've done about 90% of the basement with my scraper pal by my side and it's worked pretty well. I almost hesitate to ask because it's so late in the game for me: do you have a trick for painting around carpet?
Meanwhile, I'm thinking about what colour to paint the laundry room floor. It will have the same greige walls as the basement, with black and white textiles (it's a surprise), and industrial-style shelving (I hope). I had narrowed down the choice to turquoise, orange or raspberry but because of my passion for turquoise, it was an easy choice: something in the green-blue family. Now I'm thinking . . . do I want a deep teal, a super bright Caribbean turquouise, maybe more of an on-trend emerald hue, or something soft and vintage like mint green?
