Once that was done I measured my wall. I wanted an odd number of stripes so that the top stripe would be white and the bottom stripe would be white. I felt if I did it any differently the wall wouldn’t look right. I decided on 5 stripes because I wanted big bold stripes. I also wanted the area around my light switch and outlet to be white and 7 stripes would have thrown that all off.
Last time I was very successful in getting clean and perfect stripes by painting my background color over the edge of the tape to seal in the color. The Beacon Gray went on immediately after. Two quick layers and I pulled off my tape and my striped wall was done.
It is a quick job for any room, perfect for a mudroom like this. I think it would also look great on a accent wall in a laundry room, pantry, foyer or bathroom. Practically anywhere come to think of it. If one of your rooms just needs a little change this is an easy project and can give a space a whole new feel.
