Step 6.

Using 2″ painters tape, evenly stick the tape within the space drawn.

Step 7.

Horizontally line up strips of tape right next to the one before it. I decided to work horizontally as it was easier. Make sure the strips of tape are as close to the previous one as possible.

Do this until the entire wall is covered.

Step 9.

I used the only vertical strip to measure and mark the squares.

Starting at the top horizontal strip of tape, measure 2″ over from the edge of the vertical strip and place a mark on the tape. Then measure 2″ from that mark and place another mark. Do this until you reach the end of the wall.

Move down about 3-5 horizontal strips tapes and repeat above. This saved a lot of tape!

Unfortunately, I didn’t take a clear picture of the vertical lines I drew and the squares that were created from them. But you will kind of see them in the next few photos.

Once my squares were defined, I marked X’s in every other square starting from the top. The X’s were the squares I would cut out. I used a razor to gently cut along the drawn line through the tape.

Step 10.

I pealed all of the X’s from the grid to reveal the checked pattern.
