How to Paint Wall Stripes on Gallery Wall

decided to paint stripes in my hallway. Because the ones in my guest bathroom just wasn’t enough. I already had a gallery wall and loved it. But I love what new paint can do to a room. Are you with me on this ladies? :) So I though lets paint stripes on the gallery wall.
This time I chose two different paint colors. Desert Fortress and Lyndhurst Timber from Lowe’s. I’m seriously loving both theses colors!
Start by measuring the wall from top to bottom and decide how wide you want your stripes.
I did 12″ stripes.
Use a yard stick to draw your line with a pencil.
Tape the lines with Frog Tape. Trust me get this kind of tape.
Put pieces of tape on the wall area you Do Not want to be painted. This was so helpful!
Use a roller brush to paint the stripes.
Remove the tape after each stripe is painted. It will be wet. Do not let the paint dry before removing the tape. I felt this helped get the perfect stripe. (Just my opinion)
If you are painting a second color wait a day before tapping on the newly painted areas.
I love how my gallery wall turned out!

    I did this once - only mine were vertical stripes, not horizontal. The colour was Louisiana Hot Sauce (yup, very spicy deep red) and after I painted the entire wall that colour and let it dry for a day, I did stripes using polyurethane. Gave the red a darker colour, and kept it in the same tonal category. It was a feature wall in the living room - an arch to the dining room. It wasn't a gallery wall, though.
