Horizontal stripes on an accent wall


I wanted to add color to the Master Bedroom – and, I did so in the form of horizontal stripes. My goal was to get the bed and the picture above the antique radio to pop. I picked a greenish gray and measured the wall. I knew I wanted 7 stripes – 3 color and not starting at the ceiling. I wanted the light (off white) stripes to be at the top and bottom of the room to maintain the airiness of the room.

The wall height was 112 inches divided by 7 equals 16 inch stripes. I followed the instructions listed in this blog – http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2014/04/how-to-paint-super-straight-horizontal-stripes.html.

The tips listed in http://www.makeit-loveit.com blog worked great! I literally did not have to do any touch ups to the stripes.

Here are the before and after pictures. What do you think?
