DIY accent wall with electrical tape by TwoPlusCute

 

This was THE easiest DIY, ever. And the fastest. And renter friendly. And super ultra cheap. Did I mention easy?

Especially the one I caved in with my thumb.

In this post however, we are sharing how and where to caulk the interior of newly installed windows. We will also demonstrate a caulking gun (a good caulking gun – mom pay attention!) and how to use it.
