Painting Stripes Walls – 7 Easy Steps

Painting Stripes Walls

Painting stripes walls is easy but the labor and skill takes patience if you want to do a good job. Below are seven steps for perfect looking stripes.

1.) If you have a main background color for your walls paint that first.

2.) Decide how wide you want your stripes and how far apart to have them, etc.

3.) Get yourself a 3-foot level or plumb line to make straight tape lines with.

4.) Make small hash marks using a pencil and run your tape out along the marks.

5.) Use blue painters tape. It doesn't bleed paint through the edges.

6.) Using a mini roller, do two coats using a latex wall paint like eggshell, matte or satin finish. Let it dry 4 hours between coats before removing tape.

7.) Repeat the process for multi stripes. See Pictures of Bathroom Stripes Here
