By the way, the selvage ends are those that don't fray, they are tightly woven and run down the sides that they don't cut at the fabric shop.

Here's an up close pic of where I taped off in our kitchen. I hadn't decided what color to do in the kitchen, so I stopped along the corner. I had some difficulties in deciding where to stop because I have rounded corners, but I decided to stop right before the corner. I don't think it really matters as long as you stop consistently on all the other corners.
1. Tape off the area you want to paint.
2. Apply a thin layer of matte medium along the edge you want to be crisp.
3. Allow to dry.
4. Apply a layer of paint. Allow to dry. (apply another layer of paint if necessary)
5. Once paint has been allowed to dry (I waited at least 6 hours), remove the tape.
Just make sure that you don't apply the matte medium or paint to thick. Also, just use a back and forth motion along the edge of the tape.
