Striped Playroom Walls

The past two days were spent striping the walls of this awesome playroom, and I couldn't love the outcome more! My client and I came up with the idea to create a fun, playful, bright and happy playroom about a year ago, and we finally got to do it this week. I am actually also making some artwork for the walls, so it's not totally done, but I think you can get a great idea of where we're headed with these photos. 

Here were some photos I snapped while taping the stripes off:

tracing/taping the stripes actually took about 4 hours. Not an easy process. The long walls are easy, but the little skinny thin areas around corners and behind doors are what get ya!

I actually use the level app on my iPhone for these little areas now - pretty convenient for getting into teensy spaces.

And here it is, striped:

That wall to the right is where my artwork will go.

Love the pops of orange with that blue - perfection. And don't you love her Ikea light fixture in this space? Perfect contrast with the blue ceiling.

  7. I've striped a few rooms with large horizontal stripes before and the taping is no easy task. Did you have another person to help you with that part? If you did it yourself, would you share your method? I've always had a friend to hold the tape while I climbed up and down a ladder!
