This unfortunate event occurred as soon as we got home with the paint. Grrr… I was sort of hoping Hurricane Sandy would wash some of the stain away a few weeks ago- No.Such.Luck!
1- Measure out your stripes and put tick marks on both sides of the wall.
2- Use a Chalk-line to get Perfect Guide Lines- Simply, put the string directly on the tick marks on both sides of the wall, pull the string taut, and snap that baby! It is so much MORE accurate and FASTER than using a level and a pencil. Let me remind you of something… you’ve seen how awkward I am at dancing… would you trust me to use a level on wall stripes? I think not.
These bad boys are crisp, straight and ready for some Frog Tape!
Once again Frog Tape & the Mangin Method = Perfection!
Seriously, I do a cheesy dance (you can picture it) every time I remove tape from a project!
I do recommend removing the tape as soon as you’re done-I don’t wait for the paint to dry, and I remove it VERY slowly and evenly.
It was so simple and took me and Eric about 4 hours from start to finish.
It’s a lot of color (as requested by Kira), but I like the extreme contrast that the white walls bring. I also could totally picture doing this with muted tones or even all in one color with an ombre effect!
