tutorial: how to paint stripes on your wall or ceiling
i love striped walls. i love stripes in general, really. we’ve done stripes in our bathroom, the girls pink princess room, and a few other places in the past.
and when i saw the ceiling on my inspiration room with wide reddish/salmon-y and white stripes i knew i had to do it.
it can be daunting to do stripes, but we have a pretty simple system down-pat at this point.
you need two people, two tape measures, two pencils, a couple of rolls of frog tape or painters tape, and at least one ladder (if you’re doing walls, two for a ceiling. assuming one of you isn’t very, very tall. then you may not need any ladders.)
so there you have it. how to paint stripes, the easy (ha!) way.
