I’ve just returned from 5 amazing days in Chicago and realized… hey… it’s Tuesday… time for another quick-tip! Because my luggage awaits (don’t you just hate unpacking!) I’ll make this quick.
If you’ve ever felt frustrated while wasting time trying to find the end of a tape roll, a simple solution is to fold the edge.
After you’ve finished using what you need, take a small part of the end and fold it over on itself. Next time you use it… it’s easy to find, ready to go, and no wasting precious time!
If you have any other methods of finding the end of the roll I’d love to hear them. Also, you can catch last weeks Q-T-T here!

Denise, you’ve helped in the past and I have another question. With regard to DIY chalk paint, Sherwin Williams Paint sometimes has a sale on quart sized “sample” paint. They tell you for walls, this paint may not hold up as well as the more expensive styles they carry. My question is, will this sample paint be all right to use for DIY chalk paint (for purposes of selling the furniture pieces) since it’s going to be covered with the wax or topcoat. I’m guessing it will hold up fine but would appreciate your feedback. To sell painted furniture, I”d like to feel secure with the sale paint without having to pay top dollar for upgraded styles. Thank you so much.
Hi Terry! I use SW paint ALL the time but I’ve never painted with their sample paints. You could always ask a SW associate if their sample paints are of the same quality – I find they are super helpful whenever I have questions. 🙂
I use a paper clip or one of those plastic tab things you find on a loaf of bread to mark the end of my tape roll and there’s no need of folding over the end of the tape plus no tape is wasted that way.
