I was a bit nervous to paint stripes, just that ol' sinking feeling kept creeping in, that the paint would bleed to death and look like crap in the end, but at the same time, was pretty stoked to do it. Of course I had a little bit of a hiccup, but that was quickly put to rest knowing I could cover it up. Oh, I'm definitely not suggesting you cover up your mistakes, but hey, s@#!t happens and it just worked out
this time, that my project allowed me to do that:) This is pretty straight forward, and I know many of you have painted stripes, so this is just a quick recap of how it all went down!
I painted the entire wall with the white first, let it sit over night, then taped out where the stripes would go 8" apart. I prefer to use the green Frog Tape, for most of my painting projects, but that's just my preference. Then I applied the brown Martha Stewart colour, starting at the top. After finishing the stripes, I started to remove the tape row by row...
...the headboard covered it! Hooray! I might actually attempt to do stripes again in the next year, (or 10)...:)
