Pinstripe Walls – DIY

April 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

Pinstripe walls are very sophisticated and classy, just like a classy pinstripe suit.
Emily Henderson, HGTV’s latest Design Star, gave a wonderful tip on how to paint pinstripe walls.
I will speak of this in terms of the photograph below. First paint your base coat black. Then use 2 inch think painters tape, measuring it at the top and bottom to make sure its even, and leave a thin space between each (about 1/8 inch) for your white stripes. Then you paint another coat of black paint where the white stripes will be in the end, this is to make sure that the bleeding, which is unavoidable, will be the black onto the black. Then you paint your white layer. When it is dry, remove the tape. There will be some little imperfects, but just touch them up with a small paint brush.
