She said: "Got sick of masking tape when priming the skirting so I found a naughty little hack. Please don’t tell."

Harriet demonstrated the simple hack on the border of her wall using a wallpaper scrapping tool.

She takes the tool and places it up against the wall where the border meets it.

The DIY whizz then applies her primer using the tool to act as a barrier and stop it form going onto the walls.
