Painted Wall Stripe Inspiration

Painted Stripe Wall Ideas {Paint It Monday} The Creativity Exchange



Today, I wanted to highlight a painting trend that has really become popular lately that I just love and it’s horizontally painted stripes on walls. I really love this look because it’s a great and inexpensive way to really add a pop of drama in a space.

My sweet blogging friend Megan from Honey We’re Home recently rocked my world when she painted gorgeous wide stripes on her entry way wall a few weeks ago:

Isn’t that incredible!

Megan did a fantastic job and what she also shared a very detailed tutorial on here fabulous blog how she was able to get perfect crisp lines.  She also shared how to measure for the stripes.  It’s by far the best tutorial I have ever seen on how to painting perfect stripes and you can find it here.

Thanks to Megan’s tutorial, she has made it so easy for us to do this project on our own and I got to thinking about all of the wide stripe possibilities.  So here is some striped eye candy to inspire us with all of the possibilities:

    I LOVE this look! I wanted to paint my kids room turquoise but was worried it might be too “in your face”. Now I think I’ll go for this wide wall stripe look and mix it up with white and turquoise, it will lighten it up perfectly!!!!!

    Just in time! I want to paint one wide stripe in my small dining room. It’s covered with art, so I don’t want it to be too busy, BUT…I have taped it off and, because the house is 113 years old, it doesn’t look level, though it is…anybody got any tips for that??? I am on my way over to the tutorial now…and then to the Fall Homes tour, what a day!

  3. Thanks so much for including me Cyndy! Have a great day! 🙂

  4. I have been itching to add some different sized stripes in my son’s room! Love the photos – such inspiration! Going to have to pin the tutorial and save it for later!
