A little cabin fever with sub-zero temps had me looking at areas of our home to “clean” up which lead to painting a striped gallery wall. Strange how my brain works but once I cleared the bookcases (so much dust!), that inspired the idea to dress up the entire area.
What I used:
- FrogTape® Multi-Surface
- paint – I used leftover paint from our laundry room. Color is Valspar Mineral Ash. Existing wall color is Benjamin Moore Smoky Taupe.
What I did:
I cleaned the wall above our build in bookcases. I marked where the framed prints hang on the wall then using the level, marked light pencil lines horizontally.
Then I applied the FrogTape.
I used my thumbnail to secure the edges of the FrogTape to the wall in order to get nice crisp paint lines.
Then simply painted the wall two coats.
While the second coat was still wet, I removed the FrogTape and let the paint dry.
Then hung up my prints and restyled the bookcases. Paint is such an easy way to create a new look, add some interest and to freshen up the space.
Now to come up with some seating for this area. Stay tuned!
