I mentioned in a previous post here about my love for the horizontal stripe. It took me a while, but I finally found the perfect place to stripe, the hallway going upstairs. If any place needed a little whimsy, this area certainly did.
We followed the same process we did the last time we horizontally striped an area. The colors we picked were a shade and sheen apart. They are actually pale blue in color. I couldn’t find the paint cans to let you know which color, but if they are found I will post that information. Two coats of the lighter color went on. We then decided how many stripes we wanted, marked, and taped them off (after the paint had dried of course). Then the darker shinier color went on (two coats as well). Make sure you pull your tape while the paint is still wet!
Other projects we tackled on the hallway makeover:
- Paint the brown handrail white.
- Freshen up the white paint on the trim.9
- Give the stairs a new coat using a slip resistant paint (the paint felt like it had sand mixed in it).
Over all a much more cheery area, amazing what a few coats of paint can accomplish.
