How to Paint Stripes on Your Walls : How to Contrast Wall Paint Stripes


Hello. My name is Melissa Shank and on behalf
of Expert Village today I am going to teach you how to paint a room with stripes. In this
clip, in our final clip, lets talk about contrasting our colors. It is very important when you
are going to be painting stripes on your walls, of course you want to have two colors that
are slightly contrasting. One that is brighter or darker than the other. It can be very different
or it can be just slightly different. But when you are contrasting your colors and stripes,
something that is very important to do is to paint just, you know one or two stripes,
and as you saw in the ealier clip we are going to take the tape off of the wall as we do
it. So you are going to be able to see right away the contrast. And, most importantly,
if you like that contrast. You may think that you like the contrast, by looking at the two
colors of paint, in the paint cans themselves, but, what does it look like on your walls?
So instead of painting your entire room, and kind of looking back and thinking well, what
does this look like, I would recommend paint a couple of stripes, take the tape off of
the wall and have a look at it. See if you like it or not and adjust it. If you don’t,
you can fix it right away. You can paint right over that and fix it. If you have done the
whole room, you are going to, you are going to spend a lot of energy in case, well if
you like it, that is terrific. If you don’t like it, then you are going to have to redo
it. So my suggestion is just do a couple of stripes, have a look at it, and if you like
it, keep on going.
