Remodeling Tips: Painting Stripes
As a follow-up for our guide on using stripes in interior design we offer stripes as a cool interior design solution if you are planning remodeling. Achieving stripes with paint can be quite challenging but the result definitely worth it. Before starting painting the entire wall you might want to try to create couple of stripes at the side of a wall.
Choose the background and stripe color. Paint the wall with the stripe color. To create stripes use a painting tape and create a first stripe at the side of the wall. Measure from every next stripe to achieve same distance between each stripe. Use a marking pencil to mark each stripe. Tape all the stripes and make sure the tape is well stuck to the well otherwise it will let the paint bleed over the stripe color.
Then paint the wall with a background color. Let it dry well, remove the tape. Using one-inch brush touch up the stripes. By the way, the stripes can be of different sizes but the print should be cohesive and interesting. However, creating more complex striped print is more difficult but the principle is quiet the same.
