And, hallway after:
Hallway after:A lot still needs to be done, but I was thrilled with how the stripes turned out so I decided to post it now. Two tutorials I followed pretty closely were Young House Love and Emily Clark's.
Our hallway (more like an upstairs landing) has a lot of corners, so when marking the walls with the painter's tape, it was important to keep it straight and level. My husband helped me and we used a "L" square and a level to insure the markings were straight.
I also decided to have the lighter color as the first stripe and I believe it made a difference and kept the landing feeling lighter and brighter.
Note: Mr. Zebra (from my last post) was intended as a hint, not a red-herring. I'm going to have to get better at leaving hints! :)
