Measure & Mark Stripes
Use measuring tape and a pencil to measure and mark width of stripes (Image 1). Next, snap a chalk line along the pencil mark to create a straight line for each stripe along the tray as well as the ceiling (Images 2 and 3).
Place Painter's Tape
Once a chalk line is snapped for all stripes, use painter's tape to mark stripes that will be left as the base color and those painted with accent colors. To mark base color stripes, position tape along the inside top and inside bottom edges (Image 1). To prevent any bleeding, use a credit card or burnisher to ensure tape lays perfectly flat, void of any gaps (Image 2).
Paint Accent Colors
Starting with marked stripes on the ceiling and working downward to tray, apply paint between marked-off areas using a 2-inch angled paintbrush and rollers.
