Wait till you see how cool this will be! The palette is two shades of gray with this luscious and vibrant Snow Cone Green . I want to add white and navy blue accents.
This room Is well on its way to finished. I have to say the prepping with tape takes some time. I found a great step by step blog on painting stripes at . UnskinnyBoppy.com check it out! I Also I bought a laser level and couldn't get in to work in a way that made sense due to the fact that the walls where not flat and smooth. So I did end up following these steps but using a large level instead I first_
- Measured the wall from floor to ceiling then divided it by an odd number (7). It always looks better to do odd numbers.
- in this case my walls were 93" Making each stripe 13.28..." If I had chosen to do an even divide of the whole wall, the stripes would have been too wide.
- So I worked from the ceiling down and opted to do 12" stripes instead leaving more room at the bottom. I marked with light pencil 12" apart down so there would be 3 dark gray painted stripes, creating 7 stripes all together. I used a large level to mark with pencil a few places across horizontally, taping inside the stripes that would not be painted.
- Thank god for Frog Tape! it works! Since the paint was a flat finish it dried fairly quickly. I Rolled on a few layers, waited till it felt dry then gently pulled back the tape in horizontal motion.
- I used small brushes to re-touch both the dark or light gray where needed.
