    I love your striped walls. I painted our ladies parlor walls in vertical stripes right after we moved in using this same technique. It makes for a perfect line. Mine were tone on tone using flat and semi gloss of the same color. They'd still be that way had I not fallen in love with my current drapes.

    I did the vertical in my dining room in my old house. Wasn't as much work as I thought it would be but I was a bit younger then.
