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 know that I wanted a more 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 figured that I would go with the horizontal stripe to make it look better and more split the room. I think it really adds a good look to it.
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. If it didn’t, I would have just painted it white first and then re-done it.
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 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 :)
