Quick Stripes with ScotchBlue Painters Tape

Ya'll know how we roll over here. Projects must be completed during a nap time (or 10).

I have this wall upstairs that has a small gallery wall. (You can never have too many right???)


But it was kinda boring and needed something. I've been wanting to paint stripes on it for a while, but haven't gotten around to it. Thanks to the folks at ScotchBlue, I was able to do this project quick and easy!



To paint stripes, I measured the distance between the top and bottom moldings and then divided by 7. I wanted 7 stripes. Odd numbers are always better to me. I also wanted the top and bottom stripe to stay the original wall color so I didn't have to cut in. (We work fast here people!)
When divided out, my stripes were going to be about 12 in. each. I left the excess for the bottom stripe so it would be less noticable.


I used the Scotch Blue tape to attach my laser level to my tripod. I started with the middle stripe and taped from there.
I also had a helper for this project!

In order to make sure I didn't paint the wrong stripes, I used to tape to mark off the ones not getting painted.





I had to tape the ends of the stripes that made the corner to our 2 story family room.



When I was done using the Scotch Blue Painters Tape I mixed my paint. I didn't want to buy any new paint so I just mixed a few colors I had on hand.



The stripes look different widths but they're not, I promise! You have to remember to tape the outside of the paint line from the stripe you're painting. I did have to take the tape off one line because I accidentially taped the inside!

After painting each stripe, I quickly peeled off the Scotch Blue Tape. Make sure you take it off while it's still wet. You'll get a much better paint line that way.



I absolutely LOVE how it turned out.


It was so quick and easy for such a big impact!




Here's the Before Meets After




Thanks to Scotch Blue for providing me with product to complete this project and for providing Little Man entertainment!
