    Striped walls?

    Advertisements
    I've got this idea in my head that I really want to paint stripes on the walls in the master bathroom.
    Like this:


    Has anyone done this before? Do you like stripes? Is it hard? Am I making a horrible mistake?

    This is what I did to my walls. It wasn't totally hard but took a lot of time and if you want parallel stripes, have a second person at hand. Makes it so much easier. I also really like my 'stripes'.

    Just be careful as stripes can make a room appear to be smaller and busier, but I definitely think that looks nice! I really like that they don't contrast much, so it keeps a calm mood.

    Oh wow that's awesome! It looks really well done. I lovelovelove the paintings you hung in the middle of the squares.

    Yeah I want to do colors that are almost the same as those in the pic. Our floor is sandy-brown-cream color marble tiles and our decor/towels are pale blue so I want to have stripes that are a pale tan and pale blueish.

    Thanks just don't ask how many hours I spent on painting The lines look pretty decent though. I was super pleased with myself... I also really love the painting. There's a third part to it, you just can't see it. Got them in Korea.

    The painting is easy. It's the setup that's difficult and time consuming. Any little errors can kill the effect. Errors being in differences in stripe widths, and slightly off parallel.

    I did it in DD's nursery and loved how it turned out. I'll try to remember to come back and post pics later!
    Put on your big girl panties and deal with it like a boss.

    The only thing I would suggest is be mindful of the size of the room you want to paint. It's a great feature but if it's a tiny room, maybe only paint one wall as an accent? Otherwise, I think it's awesome

    I did a chevron wall in my dining room and it wasn't too bad! It's just time consuming and I had to measure everything out.
