When we embarked on our girls’ room makeover a couple months ago, I had chosen a striped theme for the walls.
Getting clean, crisp striped lines with paint is actually a fairly simple process, but it takes a bit of time to do it properly. We went the fast, lazy route, in an effort to get the girls into their new room before school started.
Plus, I really wanted to keep some of the original wall color, and it just wouldn’t have been possible with the “right” technique.
They love their room, and that works for me, but the stripes definitely could have gone better. Still, we did get it done in a single afternoon, so our technique has its merits. Here’s the story of our stripes — and what we could have done to make them better.
