Materials Needed:

  • tape measure
  • painter's tape
  • level
  • paint in five shades of green (or your color of choice)
  • paint roller

Step 1

Starting from the ceiling, measure the height of your wall and divide by 5 to figure out how tall each stripe should be. Add a line of tape where the top horizontal stripe will end, using a level.

Step 2

Paint the top stripe the lightest green. Remove the tape at the stripe’s bottom edge while the paint is still wet. Let dry.

Step 3

Apply a new strip of painter’s tape on the lightest stripe, along its bottom edge. Add a second piece of tape where you want your next stripe to end. Paint the second stripe the next darkest shade. Remove both pieces of tape while the paint is still wet. Let dry.
