Start the tutorial
Here's What You Need
- painters tape - interior paint - roller &/or brush - paint tray - plastic drop cloth - level &/or measuring tape (optional)
Step 1: Tape the wall
Determine what pattern you want, and use painters tape to create it. I used measuring tape to keep my lines equal distance, but you can also do random lines or shapes!
Step 2: Paint the wall
Use a roller or paint brush (or both) to paint over the entire wall. I used Studio Color paint in Stellar (premixed paint at Walmart) for a bold contrast.
Step 3: Dry/Recoat
Let the paint dry 1-2 hours. Add a second coat if necessary. (Check paint can for drying/repaint times.)
Step 4: Remove the tape
Slowly peel the tape off, careful not to pull up any new paint!
