Wide Horizontal Striping in the Bathroom
Black and gray horizontal wall stripes
When I went and finally got around to painting the guest bathroom, I really wanted to try something that I’ve been seeing on television shows. I knew that I wanted a darker theme to the room, but I figured that going just straight black or gray would be hard to pull off and I didn’t want to have to wallpaper the room.
I finally decided that I would go with the horizontal stripe to make it look friendlier.
The way I did it, but I’m not sure if it’s the correct way, is that I painted the middle part of the wall the gray color so that I wouldn’t have to worry about border issues. I figured since the black is darker that it would cover it up easier and it did.
I taped off the border after it was all dry and just applied the dark color.
I really think that it looks good. I didn’t want the smaller stripes because I think it’s a little too much and busy and I think the single large stripe really adds something to the room, but doesn’t take away from the other pieces.
Also, I was hoping that possibly using the whole horizontal stripe thing would make the room look bigger. I’m not sure if it works like that, but I still tried.
My friends and I did all the work. It was fun. It wasn’t ALL that much fun, but it was fun :) Click here to share your stripe painting idea and see your name in lights!
