A workout indeed!  Looks like the hard work paid off though - this is definitely a room you'll love looking at and being in - absolutely lovely!

wow! it looks great, i love the green Smiley
my dad actually used this same technique to paint our dining room about 5 years ago-- its still looking just as beautiful. its really great to see it in the daylight, because the stripes shimmer in different ways all across the room, regardless of your angle.

I did this to my living room a few years ago, and I LOVED it. Of course, my stripes were 9 inches wide instead of four =) I also did it with dark brown which became a little opressive.

PinkyK did a version where her & hubby used a diamond pattern.  It turned out beautiful just like yours!  Here's a link to hers https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52757.0

...I think I might have to do something like this in our sitting room!

Do more of what makes you happy.

Spectacular. Simply spectacular!

BUT, didn't your mother ever teach you to never EVER stand on a folding chair??!!??!! That's a great opportunity to break your arm, your leg....or whatever is available! (DH is doctor) Owee!

Reply from Muria: Cool! I was thinking about doing this with my kitchen (to resemble some wallpaper that I saw, since DH hates wallpaper).  How long did you have to wait after you did the basecoat before you added the tape?  I was going to use regular painter's tape, but if this works better, I'll have to look for it! 

Thank you! I did both coats of the base coat on day 1, then day 2 I started to put the tape up- the brown low tact can leave some residue if you're not careful pulling it off & if it's left on for more than 1 day. I liked using that better than the blue painter's tape bcz blue tape is completely sticky- the brown is only on 1 edge, so it's much easier to pull off as you don't have to worry the base coat will be taken with it.  Cheesy

wow, that is So Freaking Awesome. I may steal the idea for my own bedroom. So sophisticated, and it's not just boring one colour, but it's not zany or crazy either, it's so perfect for a bedroom. I love it soooo much.

I have sixtybillion more ideas than actual completed projects. Blog stalker, fast talker, slow walker!
