I love a good stripe, especially in the home. Striped walls and striped things are everywhere these days. I have been wanting to paint a striped wall in our hallway forever and have never gotten around to it. So when we were updating and transitioning our little boys room into a bigger boy room I decided it was a great time to go for stripes.
Here is a before shot below, this was before ripping the carpet up and painting the walls a darker shade of blue...
I went the
easy lazy route and decided to make the stripes all different sizes instead of trying to measure out each stripe the exact same. I thought for a little door it would be fun. So yes, I just eyeballed it. Its not exact or perfect but with the stripes being different sizes it works. This project was really a cinch - tape up some stripes and paint the door. Simple.
Isn't it so cute? I love it! It adds so much fun and a little brightness to his room.
And as you can tell, this is a lived in little boys room. It has bins full of random toys, stickers stuck on things and homemade projects on the walls. I see all of these kids rooms on pinterest that are perfectly organized and decorated without hardly a toy in site. I'm not sure how that works but I'm really happy with how his little space turned out - its his.
Next on the list of things to do in here is to change out the door handles. I have had the new ones for months now - but they were way more complicated looking to install than I thought so I have put them off. Eventually he will have some updated oil rubbed bronze door knobs to go with all of the other finishings. Those little finishing seem to make such a big difference when all together.
Its cool how a little paint can transform a space.
Do you guys have any stripe projects in your home? A wall, door, some furniture? Share with me!
