Hello Stripes!

I'm happy to report that the striped wall was a success! 

Here is the before (sort of if you can imagine the wall without tape - the lighting is so bad in these photos)...for anyone curious or contemplating doing this, the taping and measuring is the toughest part, but it's really not that bad.  The painting is smooth sailing and fun!

And here is the wall in its current state...stripes!!  I love it and I love what it does for the room.  I love coming home and obsessing over admiring my new striped wall. 

Do those stripes rock or what?!

This weekend I'm hoping to hang the mirror to help finish off this wall - so stay tuned for more updates.

This is all part of my e-design project that I worked on with Kirsten.  She has been so helpful and encouraging through the whole process - and I've learned so much!  Can't wait to show you the final final result.


Don't forget to enter Abby's Joss & Main giveaway at A Delightful Design - giveaway ends on Friday, July 1st.

  2. The stripes turned out Ah-mazing!! I love to finish a project and just stare at it endlessly too. Great job.

  3. They really do add a cheery feel to a room. (It's nice to be done though, isn't it?)

  4. I love your striped wall, Holly! So chic, and the chairs you have beneath it are stunning. I'm thinking of doing a striped wall in my bathroom down the road. I may be picking your brain, when I do. I will definitely be following your blog!

  5. They look fantastic! I would just sit and stare at them. That is the kind of thing I do. Love thsoe chairs as well.

  6. I've been dying to do stripes, but I'm always afraid of investing the time, only to pull off the tape see the lines blurred. Your room turned out fabulous!

    Thanks for the comment on my DIY tool kit list :)
