STEP 1: Wipe wall with the clean, damp cloth to prepare painting surface.

STEP 2: Lay down the drop cloth to protect floors and use painter's tape to cover baseboard.

STEP 3: Using existing doorframe shape as a guide, plan design and use the level and the pencil to lightly outline entry accent.

STEP 4: Use painter's tape to outline sketched design; apply pressure to tape to ensure a tight seal with the wall.

STEP 5: Using the angled brush, paint in the space just inside the painter's tape and within the doorframe; use the mini woven roller to fill in the remaining accent area.

STEP 6: Remove the painter's tape while paint is still damp; allow paint to dry, following suggested drying time on the can label.
