1. Use a ruler and pencil to divide the wall at the different heights, where you want your stripes. Set the laser level to the wall at those intervals and run tape along the line projected around the room by the laser level. Repeat this for each line.
2. Use the roller and brushes as necessary to paint inside the taped-off areas.
