Do It Yourself - - Stuff We Love -

Avoid the has­sle of wall­pa­per by cre­at­ing a pat­terned ac­cent wall with paint, op­po­site. To chan­nel this gingham look, first prep for the hor­i­zon­tal stripes by plac­ing guide marks ev­ery 24 inches start­ing at the ceil­ing and work­ing your way to the base­board. Dip a 12-inch wall­pa­per smooth­ing brush into the paint and drag it hor­i­zon­tally across the wall at the ceil­ing to cre­ate your first stripe. Drag an­other hor­i­zon­tal stripe along­side the first to make a 24-inch stripe. Con­tinue po­si­tion­ing the brush along the guide marks and drag­ging across, adding paint as needed. Re­peat with ver­ti­cal stripes, plac­ing guide marks ev­ery 24 inches. Re­paint as de­sired to darken the stripes.
