The beauty of stripes like these: There’s no rigid pattern, so eyeball your stripes depending on your preference.

Materials Needed:

  • white paint
  • paint rollers
  • painter's tape
  • paint for stripes (we used light coral, dark coral, and blue)

Step 1

Paint the entire wall white. Let dry.

Step 2

Tape off random vertical stripes in varying widths. Keep in mind that you'll want to leave some stripes white. Paint these stripes light coral. Remove the tape while the paint is still wet. Let dry.

Step 3

Re-tape another set of stripes for the dark coral. Paint, remove the tape, and let dry, then repeat for the blue stripes.
