DIY: Striped Entry

I finally tackled painting the entry this weekend and decided to go with stripes. Here is the before:



I first painted the walls a creamy white. {Aren't my girls cute??}



Then, I taped using the delicate surface painter's tape {since I had just painted the walls 48 hours prior}.



After this, I just painted in the stripes with the same color that is in my living room, let dry for about 30 minutes and then peeled off the tape. I did not have ONE bleed through spot. I was so impressed with the tape! It came out perfect!



I am pretty obsessed and even the hubs approves! Now to get a new light, and entry table and accessories...
