Hear me out. Use some pink and some teal and jazz that bad boy up 90's style (or rugrats style as someone mentioned) and perhaps do a couple of simple shapes and maybe we'll have something awesome.


Kincadium

Welp... Now I gotta Rocko up the living room.


unfunfununf

Oh I'm nauseous, I'm listless.


Mondayslasagna

Add some tape, wash your hands. Add some tape, wash your hands. Add some tape…


unfunfununf

I love how obscure and generation specific that reference is, but you both got it. I love you guys as much.


Kincadium

This entire thread is making me so happy.

MrVeazey

Don't forget to add a picture of a sad crying clown in an iron lung.


caitejane310

Gonna make it modern?


CountMecha

Even my bathroom is a bathroom!


DeadlyFreckles

Yeah, and also cut the edges with some scissors so you don't have ripped uneven ends...


StrokeGameHusky

My first thought as watching this vid. One person cut one person stick. Boom way better.


NotBradPitt90

Yeah pattern looks good. Just needs to be done in paint/colours


ShatoraDragon

Might be Renters and can't paint it.


blumpkin

Have you ever put tape like this on something and let it sit? It starts to get crumbly and dusty, especially if you let sunlight hit it. Then, you're stuck with a wall that looks like shit and has been stained by peeling tape.


TheRealPitabred

Gaffer tape comes in many colors ;) masking tape does exactly like you say, and I would definitely recommend against it.


crunchthenumbers01

They were better off using stencils and paint


Espresso___Depresso1

Ok hear me out, neon duck tape/electrical tape,scissors,a basement, a light system, sound system, time and money… and BOOM a rave room in your own home!


PitchforkEmporium

But duct tape will wreck the paint when it's time to take it off


CinemaAudioNovice

Yeah, maybe this could be fun as a temporary thing like for a themed party


Talking_Head

r/VaporwaveAesthetics/


L1K34PR0

Yes


4friedchiknsandacoke

Yeah I was gonna say some glitter washi tape and this is a pretty fun and cheap apartment/rental deco idea (not permanent or damaging)


randomdude21

Have you tried to remove masking tape from a painted surface after 6 months? The paint, and some wall texture will be removed. Maybe even some rippings of drywall paper will come out, peeling more texture and paint. This would be a nightmare to correct.


superareyou

I think the main problem is a lack of attention to detail. You could pull it off with better colours and sharp edges on the ends of the tape for sure.


SouthernYoghurt9

You still probably don't want to do it with tape


madame-brastrap

SPONGE PAINT THAT ISH!


ghettone

Fuck you that's a great idea.


tinripp

That style is called Memphis Design pattern.


Dazz316

Fresh!


zitfarmer

. . . So. . . Tape wall?


kimchi-chronicles

Do you have picture reference?


GFanksMR

Paint the wall then peel them off and you would have a better effect


Agentloveless

Thats what I thought they were going to do haha


andrewmac

Can't do that in a rental


maxismadagascar

I paint my rentals all the time. Landlords generally don’t care if you just paint it back (properly) before you leave. I’ve even had a landlord who liked the color and didn’t make me change it back Edit: this is in Florida. Not sure of the regulations elsewhere E2: always ask first obv


Standard-Ad-6213

My last 3 leases said I couldn't even use blutak on the walls.


Dr_fish

I'm not allowed to even look at the walls.


merdub

You guys have walls?


IamSoooDoneWithThis

I’m just a penis that cries and eats


NotThrowAwayAccount9

It varies a lot, but never hurts to ask. I really don't want to have to repaint while moving out though so I've never bothered.


maxismadagascar

Oh I mean yeah always ask on account of the risk of being charged your deposit. Lot of places in FL don’t let you paint.


Wolfblood-is-here

Yeah my first landlady was awesome, let us paint the walls and even stick nails in them. The place was a bit scruffy when we moved in and she said she was getting it properly remodeled at the end of our tenancy so we could do whatever; I checked after moving out and she put the rent up by nearly a hundred quid so it's not like we were being ripped off by living in it before the remodelling either.


UsefulCauliflower3

My last rental before buying, everything was wood paneling and hideously dark. I asked if I could paint a neutral color bc that was the only way I’d move in and they approved. When I moved out - after updating the cabinets, painting, fixing the shelving and patching other little issues - she tried to keep my entire deposit because her vacuum clogged and I had painted the walls. I threatened court and got it back bc I had taken pics of how clean it actually was the day we left and had the texts of her approving us to paint thankfully. Then I found out they raised the rent $150/mo bc it looked so much nicer. Some landlords are just assholes and try to lie a way to keep your money, so just look out and always keep your proof of little things like that.


atomicwrites

Don't think there are any regulations about this, it's just your agreement with your specific landlord.


anthrolooker

I did this to a rental where all the walls were pastel yellow - not cream, not beige, PASTEL YELLOW with a lot of yellow. everyone loved the shade we painted so much. Then came move out time... and potential future renter who came to view the place sat down to sign the lease and then backed out when they heard that the walls would be painted back to that hideous pastel yellow, lol. We were friends with owners of the property, and could not figure out why they insisted on the pastel yellow so hard for every damn room but the bathroom (which was light terracotta before terracotta was cool - definitely my favorite room).


hO97366e6

I rented a house out once and told the people they could paint but asked they get my approval for the colors first. Well they didn't, and when they painted they also didn't mask anything and got paint on the carpet, trim and ceiling too. I now understand why so many landlords won't allow tenants to do anything.


curxxx

My lease explicitly states I am allowed the paint the unit as long as I pay to have it painted back to a neutral shade before I move out.


poeticdisaster

This is what I learned. Lived in an apartment for a couple years. I asked the property management company if I could paint one small wall as an accent. The site manager decided that meant I already did it and had maintenance come do "random" checks on me for 3 months after. Only after I yelled at her was she finally satisfied that I didn't/wouldn't paint without HER permission. What I hadn't realized is that the lease said I could paint without asking anyone's permission, as long as it was painted back as I left. When I brought that up after giving her an earful for sending maintenance to check on me repeatedly, she was adamant that stipulation was "Only for non-remodeled units and units that had been used by multiple tenants". I then very clearly told her that just because she didn't like it doesn't mean she gets to make up specificity on something in a legal document & that I wouldn't hesitate to call the people above her to tell them exactly what kind of bullshit she's pulling here. She left me alone after that... I think she was fired or moved to another complex because I never had to deal with her again. I can only imagine how many people she power tripped on though. SMH.


smoldikkk

Why not?


andrewmac

Not allowed in a lot of leases.


BitterLeif

if I was renting my house to someone I would not want them painting it for me. No thank you.


TreeEyedRaven

If you’re trying to keep a tenant for more than short term leasing, you absolutely should let them make it their home. People will rent for 10+ years, and you’ll see the inside 15-20 times. It’s an investment for you, and the less times you need to flip it, the cheaper. Repainting costs under $50-100 a room if you’re at all able to paint, where even a couple stains on the floor are going to be way more. It’s just not at all a big deal compared to so many other things landlords have to deal with. If they care enough to want to paint it and make it their home, they most likely will try to take care of the other, much more expensive things that can go wrong in a rental. A single bathroom vanity can cost as much as repainting an entire inside of a house.


SouthernYoghurt9

Tape left on a wall will tear the paint off anyway


magikarpcatcher

I assume putting tape all over a wall is worse than painting. At least you can repaint the wall. But taking all the tape off is gonna be a bitch.


TigreDemon

You can but you have to see with your tenant if he wants it back the same way as before or not when you leave ...


blueB0wser

Depends on the rental. We couldn't in my house, but a few of my friends could.


auiotour

I have lived places in Washington that did not allow you to paint or hang things up, others who didn't care, even put up molding on the top of the rooms and painted the ceiling dark blue, painted the old moulding dark brown. Landlord loved it and didn't care, we didn't change it back when we moved, and still got our security deposit back.


gene100001

Depends where you live. In Germany it's super normal to paint the walls in a rental. I found it really strange when I first came here from NZ where it's usually not allowed


asuperbstarling

Yeah, I was like 'oh that will look cool!' but then they didn't paint and I was so confused.


mercpop

Paint the wall a certain color, then put the tape confetti, paint the wall white and you'll have this effect colored in the wall instead of being tape.


Wagsii

Yeah, if you don't do this, it's going to be fairly obvious you just stuck tape all over the walls to pretty much everything except a camera. Plus that tape will start to wear out after not very long and it'll look even worse.


Baby-pigeons

Thats genius


ashyashee

ngl—i don't think it looks half bad. it's not my style, but neither do I think it looks like a complete shit show. less diwhy to me and more di-they almost had it.


PreOpTransCentaur

It doesn't look like a shitshow *from 15 feet away*. I promise you it looks like masking tape stuck to a wall any closer than that.


ShakesZX

There is a rule of thumb in theatre called the “30ft rule.” You don’t have to make props and sets look good up close cause the audience is always at least 30ft away.


Dr-Purple

This video is making me very uneasy and I think they have zero sense of interior design


Aldrenean

Most wall treatments in cheap apartments look shitty close up. For how cheap and easy this is I don't hate the look at all. It's vastly better than almost everything in this sub.


a-manic-ferret

I mean, to me it **does** kind of look like a complete shitshow. With all the brown tape, it looks like some severely backed up individual laid a bunch of logs all over the walls.


Ordinary_Rabbit

This sub is actually full of cool stuff. People post videos thinking this is actually something like /r/anythingDIYisstupid


AC85

This is where I’m at


RowBowBooty

everything starts to peel two weeks later, but for 14 days you feel like you’re in a Taco Bell from the 90s


asuperbstarling

Without teal and sunset colors, it's just a fraud. Looks like a tortilla.


ThePenultimateOne

I miss bisexual taco bell


_KappaKing_

If the tape were different colours it coulbe alright. Reminds me of rugrats style.


cravyeric

this is pretty harmless all things considered when compared to some of the other hacks


BitterLeif

the tape will eventually dry and start to peel. The adhesive residue will look gross and be annoying to clean.


DropBearsAreReal12

If not impossible. I had glow in the dark stickers on my wardrobe as a kid and took them off over a decade ago. Tried every adhesive remover and it's still there. I'll need to sand it off if I ever repaint it.


Young_Laredo

At least there wasn't any concrete or hot glue


ElDoodl

Her expression at the end doesn’t make me want to try this. Otherwise I maybe would have


Secrets_In_Sound

Lmao


retro_pollo

Tape all that, paint the whole wall with a new color and peel all that tape? That's just me tho


Kwintty7

It's packing tape. That's not coming off cleanly. Would maybe work with masking tape though.


TheFrontierzman

This is what I thought they were doing.


HansenIntercept

Would make more sense to paint over it and take off the tape


CancusTreff

Would have been better if it wasn't brown. Honestly not bad at all.


grantaccess

I like that this is a DIY tapewall. Who can afford the prices contractors charge for them?


King_WhatsHisName

...Scott here


COBRA1286

I expected them to paint the wall and take the tape off but no


Sammyscrap

That's actually not bad. Will probably peel eventually though


thesockyoucantfind

i mean if they cut the tape, painted, then peeled...


AgesGenesis1

My walls look exactly like that except they are used band-aids.


RecedingQuasar

Great idea, I'll do that in the room with my used condom chandelier!


Afraid-Nobody5403

I think her facial expression at the end sums it up appropriately. Equal parts confusion / embarrassment.


AvrevsAureus

This is actually nice tho


DrudgeBreitbart

Hey y’all tape wall


ItsJustMeMaggie

I assumed they’d paint the wall over the tape and peel it off, which would look kind of cool. Nope. Just a tape wall.


Confetticandi

Someone isn’t getting their deposit back…


smurfpls

I actually really like this id just worry about the adhesive peeling


zomgitsduke

It's not terrible and a decent way to decorate a rental with no lasting damage


SeegurkeK

v0v not that bad. Probably bad long term with the glue starting to peel off, but from a design standpoint it okay imo.


WhoElseButArky

Could just paint the wall and then remove all the tape.


Guy3nder

Worst part: I don't hate it


Hockex-4

it actually looks good


Herskarteknik

Scott here.


atomicwrites

It honestly looks decent from far, probably would be way bett if they actually cut the tape but it's not horrible. Wouldn't do it in my house though.


EhMapleMoose

Maybe paint the wall and then add some shapes and things after. It could be a cool retro type wall, but with just tape? That’d be awful.


grednforgesgirl

Ghetto wallpaper


DeepfriedPlastic04

Actually… this could be a cool way to build up shading by the density of the tape in different areas if you wanted to create a shading effect and do some actual art. Like imagine a giant portrait of thanos in your living room opposite of the tv.


ihatepalmtrees

Goofy stuff here


girl_supersonicboy

Distance is the key feature here. Far away, it looks great! Right up on it, I just want to pick it off the wall. Just paint over the tape and then peel it off. There. Ya got that weird wall design


m9rockstar

Hmm…..Definitely not the worst thing I’ve seen on this subreddit lol


astral_currents

I think it’s a decent idea if you need a temporary background for pictures or something. Maybe with different colors.


TheRealMouseRat

Gotta paint the wall in teal or something then take the tape off and you're back in the 90s.


TinyMarsupial7622

It’s not too bad. Kinda reminds me of the 80s


Pillsbury37

As someone who has had to paint a wall, don’t do this. The adhesive will stick the backer won’t. You will not get your security deposit back. Just buy a poster.


tbone-not-tbag

It don't matter what tape you use, after a while it's permanent. How's your drywall repair skills?


Bumfjghter

Even painters tape?


tbone-not-tbag

Read the inside of the roll, or the package and should have a surface disclaimer on which surfaces not to stick it on. I used blue tape that was removing my clear coat on stained wood so use a tester spot.


Low_Bit_Rate

It is not that bad of an idea. I hereby declare this exempt from this sub.

urbansamurai13

Super easy, super cheap, super ugly!


robokarizma03_08

Does not even look good.


Mr_Insomn1a

Now peal it off


FictionalDudeWanted

Tell me you've never heard of Washi Tape without telling me you've never heard of Washi Tape. Dumb asses you go first..... Edit: Changed it to Washi.


oh_sh00t

uh, do you mean washi tape bud?


k_c24

The one on the right looks like an Olsen twin.


abelabelabel

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH!!


Brock_And_Roll

Super easy. Super cheap. Super shit.


JakobsTheGhost

I mean it doesnt look THAT bad but it should be done while wall painting but not later with tape


obrienmk

I mean I understand where they were going with this, but why not just use paint??


Naptimeis4ever

My guess would be if you're renting


playforfun2

Looks bad IMO


Enthused_Llama

They really shouldn't have put the tape behind the sign.


E4R04

just why, it looks like dog shit thrown on a wall


Lukurd

This shit low-key go hard


timetravelingferret

I could see that in a backery. That's about it


coldmans

Her face at the end says it all maybe if they used different colors or painted over it and then peeled off the tape it might look better


ProfLupin1701

Super ugly


coolboy29876

I like it


snacksnnaps

These girls dress like my aunt Ruth in 1997


DeViNoDe

It would look nice if it was a tan or gold paint I suppose


PrinceN71

It's not really that bad looking from a distance. But it'll definitely look like shit when close enough


TBoneLaRone

Nope


jeff889

This absolutely triggered me. I recently spent months painstakingly cleaning and painting walls in my house to remove old adhesive and glow in the dark stickers.


DRACOEX69

Why wall


[deleted]

It looks pretty okay from far at least. Now paint the wall a different color and peel off the tape.


Jhjsjhjshs

They could’ve at least used colored tape, or cut the tape with scissors so the wall doesn’t look like it’s poorly patched up.


WickedWizard2020

Her face at the end would be my face if I was the landlord


DARTHPLONKUS

The 90’s called they want their wall back


Fun_Wonder_4114

Why can't they just hang up pictures of sports or anime like normal people?


themarknessmonster

[This face says it all.](https://ibb.co/tcQPCXD)


inky-doo

my son does the same thing, but with boogers.


HistoricalMeat

This is going to be a tremendous pain in the ass to fix when it’s time to repaint.


billymay

I don’t hate it…


Klarry10

I expected them to at least paint over it and then peel it off...


NoFuture355

![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|facepalm)


CuriousHeffa

Why not get those color scotch tapes? This feels like a u/itsgoodBUTitcouldBeBetter


Yarakinnit

I hate myself for liking this.


Jay794

It looks shit and probably won't hold anything for an extended period


StrangerFeelings

Honestly, I kind of like it... Now, if it was paint, and maybe a blue color then it wouldn't be bad.


glitchdweller

Good for cgi, I suppose


Crovali

Ew


ryrypizza

Reminds me of the ugly ass counter in my house


wontoan87

At least CUT the tape pieces rather than tear it


WillYUM82375

Seems pretty "Tacky" to me...


nicovian

ngl I think this actually looks alright. would’ve been better if they cut the edges instead of tearing and maybe added a second or third color but spacing and shape wise, this turned out a lot better than I was expecting


SnooSongs5066

That is awesome idea for a quick party decoration.


euclid0472

Super easy Super cheap Super shitty


SkyrinN00B

Not the worst idea ever


izaaksb3

TWAHLAHHH


V0rclaw

The fact that someone had to make a video to die you how to put tape on your wall is being belief


GNUGradyn

Life hack: uhhhh...... Put tape on uhhhh your wall!!!


NastyNaws

Not terrible tbh


MildlySelassie

Where can I find their channel? I find myself strangely curious what other decorating ideas these two have.
