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.)
