Hey 5 Minutes for Mom readers, this is Patti from sincerelyjean.com and today I am bringing you an easy way to paint stripes on your wall. When decorating our nursery for our son I knew I wanted to paint stripes somewhere. I ended up deciding to make it an accent wall.
Our main color was grey with pops of navy blue and a touch of green. I decided that I wanted the main color of the stripes to be the same as the room. Then I wanted one blue accent stripe for a pop of color.
So, I first started by measuring the whole wall. How many stripes you want on the wall will determine how thick the stripes are. I knew I wanted chunkier stripes and an odd number so I went with 7 stripes. My wall was 93 inches and I divided it by 7 which came out to 13.2 inches. To make it easier I decided to measure out 13 inches from the top and leave the last stripe on the bottom a little thicker but you can’t even tell.
