Testimonials
Stripes are an attractive wall treatment and are very easy to do. You can paint them in two contrasting colors, two different tints or shades of the same hue, or in two finishes of the same color, for example, flat and semi-gloss.
Grab a level, a yardstick, a light pencil and painter's tape (the blue kind) to mark off the wall for the stripes. Measure the perimeter of the room to calculate a width for the stripes that will work for the room and for each wall. Otherwise, you'll get into trouble when you reach the corners!
Pencil the stripes on the wall, using the yardstick and the level to make sure they're straight. Tape off every other stripe. Paint the lighter color stripes first, using a sea sponge or a narrow roller. Take the tape off within an hour, so it doesn't get stuck and pull the paint off the wall. Wait as needed to let the first stripes dry. Then mask them off, and paint the other stripes.
This technique is so easy and looks so lovely on the wall that you may find yourself doing what I did-- going for plaid!
