How to Paint Stripes on Your Walls : How to Paint Stripes on a Wall

Hello, my name’s Melissa Schenk and on behalf
of Expert Village, today I’m going to teach you how to paint a room with stripes. In this
clip, it’s time now to paint your stripes. I’m getting very excited here. You’ll soon
see the finished product, but this again is another very important part. Now, when you’re
painting your stripes a couple of things to keep in mind. As you’ll see, on our walls,
I like to put tape on the bottom, on the baseboards of my room, but I don’t put tape on the top
portion of the wall heading towards the ceiling. What I like to do is freehand that. So you’re
going to want to take your paintbrush and in this case freehand the top and you’ll want
to edge the bottom of the baseboards there, but you want to make sure that you don’t go
outside of your line and that you don’t use your roller and either your paintbrush or
your roller and when your going down the edges of your tape be very careful about this because
you don’t want any bleeding underneath that. So it’s very key. A little trick is if you
can just go over one spot just go over the tape once instead of rolling over and sort
of squishing the paint underneath the tape. It’s going to really help you. Also, something
else to keep in mind, very important, sometimes when you’re painting a wall, you put a lot
of paint on your brush and you spread that out on your roller. In this case I wouldn’t
recommend you doing so. You want to have a minimal amount of paint on your roller because
you don’t have a lot of space. You’re just dealing with a small area, so you want to
be very careful. Of course, the middle is fine, you’ve got some leeway there, but when
you get to the edges, if you can just try to go over that spot once, you’re going to
really help save yourself in the end.

  1. The way you doing, it will take all day!
    Not only that but trying not to have to much paint on the roller is killing me.
    for the regular folk here's a better way:
    Fill the edge of the tape with clear spaukle.(It's real light and easy to apply) and roll normaly.DONE 10 Minutes.

  2. Another way is to apply a coat of clear glaze to the edges of the tape first,let it dry (it dries quickly), and then paint your stipes. It will fill up any gaps in textured walls and give you crisp lines. We painted three diff. stripe colors on my kids rooms and they turned out fab. There was still a very little bit of bleeding but it was minimal and easily fixable with a little retouching.
