One of the two main walls in our living/dining space is done! I'm so dreading this process, as I hate measuring, taping, and actually climbing up to accomplish those. (uuggh still one wall to go!)
So here's my list of how NOT to paint a striped wall:
1. Do not use ordinary masking tapes.
Yep, just what I used. We don't have those high-grade painters tape here, or maybe we do, I just don't really care to ask 'coz I'm pretty sure this is way cheaper. I pressed the h*ll out of those to avoid bleeding. (I'm lazy to do the caulking or painting the original color first blah, though it's the way to go for smooth lines)
2. Do not ask for help from people who's currently watching their shows.
They tend to stop every other minute!
3. Do not stare at the taped walls for too long, it will definitely slow down your progress.
I have this sickness of stopping in the middle of something and just stare. You know, to stall and avoid actually doing some work
4. Never ever pose for the camera while rolling the paint.
It will definitely go over the line! Don't ask why I know.
5. Don't be too messy.
It's a pain to remove oil-based paint! I tend to sport this look until I'm done with painting projects, which would last for more than a couple of days. That's my version of painted nails.
Mixed the colors on my hand to see how I came up with the gray stripes. :)
Are you aware by now that this isn't actually a serious post? Please tell me you are! This is just the story of how this wall came about last night. I LAVET! Can't wait to paint our entry mirror/table yellow for that pop of color against this wall.
Now please excuse me, I need to finish the other side. TODAY. NOW. STAT. I can't wait to cross this wall off my list!
