Materials Needed:

  • paint in two shades of one color (we used purple)
  • paint rollers
  • pencil
  • tape measure
  • level
  • painter's tape

Step 1

Paint the entire wall light purple. Let dry.

Step 2

Starting from the ceiling, mark off 12-inch-tall horizontal stripes. If your wall height isn’t evenly divisible by 12, adjust the height of your stripes. For example, if your walls are 78 inches, do 13-inch-tall stripes instead.

Step 3

Tape off the stripes, keeping in mind that the tape should go on the parts you want to stay light purple.
