I am finally getting around to posting my How to Paint Wall Stripes. I can’t tell you how much I am loving all the striped walls I now have in my home. The first one I did was during my guest bathroom makeover, which you can see here. Next, I painted my gallery wall and you can see it here. Because I loved it so much, I knew I could not stop there. I decided to paint a wall in my dining room. I went with the same colors as the gallery wall. Here is a before picture.
Choosing the Paint Colors
Choosing the paint colors can be a little bit overwhelming. There are so many colors to choose from and picking two colors is even harder than one. Here are the two colors I choose. Lyndhurst Timber and Desert Fortress. Both from Lowes.
- Two colors of paint. I used the colors Lyndhurst Timber and Desert Fortress in Semi Gloss. Both are from Lowes.
- A two pack of 4″ wall celling roller brush. Remember you are painting two colors.
- Frog Tape ( make sure you use this brand)
Now it’s time to start the taping.
- Start by measuring the wall from top to bottom and decide how wide you want your stripes.
- I did 12″ stripes.
- Use a yardstick to draw your line with a pencil.
- Tape the lines with Frog Tape. Trust me, get this kind of tape.
- Put pieces of tape on the wall area you Do Not want to be painted. This was so helpful!
- Use a 4″ roller brush to paint the stripes.
- Remove the tape after each stripe is painted. It will be wet. Do not let the paint dry before removing the tape. I felt this helped get the perfect line. (Just my opinion)
- If you are painting the second color, wait a day before tapping on the newly painted areas.
Here is my sweet helper. 🙂
