Measure, Then Tape Off Pattern
Put protective booties on feet. Using tape measure to determine proper spacing for pattern, apply painter's tape as necessary. Tip: For equidistant stripes, position tape along the outside edges of the pre-painted areas. To ensure the proper areas get painted, mark the pre-painted solid areas with a small piece of painter's tape.
Paint Accent Colors
Alternating between taped-off areas, add two coats of accent colors with roller handle and roller sleeve.
Once all taped-off areas are dry to the touch, gingerly remove painter's tape by pulling it up and back at a slight angle.
