How to paint stripes on wall

This room was already painted with Glidden Pebble Grey. Grey is a hard color to find the perfect shade but I lucked out here! I LOVE the paint color in my living room!

Creative Shelving. I love how many sloped ceilings lend themselves to shelves and storage in interesting ways–like this one from lipidala. Even though the shelves are on the flat wall, they accentuate the slope and can utilize space that might otherwise go to waste. You only get this effect with slanted ceilings! The big disappointment, then, of Ben Falcone’s Superintelligence is that McCarthy’s performance is all Jekyll and no Hyde. At first, Carol (McCarthy), a computer programmer who quit her job years ago out of frustration with corporate heartlessness, appears to be the sort of stunted ne’er-do-well that the actress specializes in playing.

The Stellar theme is one such example of a single-page agency theme with strong diagonal.

How to paint stripes on a wall

Step 1: Paint Base Coat

When painting stripes on walls, you’re going to first paint the wall a solid color. I did the entire room grey and wanted to add white stripes on one wall as an accent wall. This is the first step to painting stripes on a wall.

Step 2: Measure

Next, comes measuring! My goodness, this can be difficult but I figured out an amazing system to make this easier! I DID NOT use a laser leveler. I heard that it was a nightmare and honestly, I didn’t even want to try since I know others that didn’t have good luck with it.
This method is only works if you do NOT have a slanted or vaulted ceiling! My ceiling is level to the ground so I was able to use the ceiling and baseboards as a guide. Check with a level before you start.
I started at the top of my wall against the ceiling and measured 9″ down and used a pencil and made a tiny mark at 9″. Then, I scooted down about 6 inches and repeated this step all the way down the wall. I repeated this step all the way across the wall and then started on the next stripe down. I ended up with 5 white stripes and 5 grey stripes.

PRO TIP: Label which color goes where. When you’re staring at the taped wall for a couple hours it can get distracting and you can lose track of which color goes where.

Step 3: Level

Use a level (a level that is 24 inches or longer is best!) and a pencil to lightly draw your horizontal stripes on the wall. Re-measure the spaces between your pencil stripes to be sure they are all even. Measure twice, Paint Once!

Step 4: Tape / Mask Sides

Tape your lines making sure that your tape is on the opposite side of where you will be painting. The width of the stripe is most important so make SURE you’re taping the correct side of the line.

PRO TIP: Use a popsicle stick or credit card to smooth any bubbles out of your tape and seal it to the wall.

Next, I taped off the sides of the wall on the “white” labeled stripes to get a clean look against my other grey wall. If you are doing stripes on multiple or all of your walls this step isn’t necessary!

Step 5: Dry Brush

I used a nearly dry paint brush (a fresh, clean paint brush with very little paint) to LIGHTLY coat the edges of your stripe where the painter’s tape is. I did this and let it dry and then used a Dollar Tree trim roller to roll the rest of the stripe and my lines came out AMAZINGLY straight. It did not bleed ANYWHERE!

Step 6: Roll second coat of paint on the striped accent wall

Not gonna lie, I LOVE IT! I was so proud of myself to do it while my hubby was at school! I ran out of paint and he brought me some more on his way home and helped me with the last little bit of painting! I could tell he was skeptical when I told him I was doing stripes on the wall but he said he really likes it! YAY! Finally, when you’re done painting, you want to peel of the painter’s tape before it is totally dry. I get impatient and peel it off pretty much right away and I was BLOWN AWAY that my lines were perfect! No bleeding at all! It was amazing!
What do you think!? Have you every thought you’d be painting stripes on walls?? When I’ve read other tutorials for how to paint stripes on a wall, I heard that it was difficult to challenging but painting stripes on walls definitely isn’t hard! I couldn’t be happier with my striped accent wall!

El Presidente Vicente Fox of Mexico may hit the trifecta, owing to the Bush administration's (and administrations before it) patent indifference to illegal immigration, as well as the legions of open border apologists and liberal do-gooders who aid and abet the human invasion of our country from the south.
The trifecta in the making? Imagine this: Mexican textbooks in American classrooms; illegal alien students in American classrooms; and, incredibly, illegal alien teachers in American classrooms.
Mexican textbooks
Last December, I published this post and wrote the following:
What American taxpayers need to understand, and especially those with school-age children attending public schools, is that the government of Mexico is striving to imbue American school children and the offspring of illegal aliens sharing classrooms with them with Mexico's culture and its nation's history. That's right ... you read that correctly. Fox News reported yesterday that a public school student in the Santa Ana School District in southern California is not only studying American history, but is receiving textbooks from Mexico via its Los Angeles-based consulate on Mexico's history. American school children in possession of Mexican textbooks!
Mexico has absolutely no business doing this -- interfering in American public education -- and the Bush Administration, which champions its No Child Left Behind educational initiative, is altogether disingenuous in not sharing this fact with American voters. Fact is, the U.S. Department of Education is a co-conspirator!

I went on to recommend to my readers an important, must-read column by Heather MacDonald, published in the prestigious, widely-read 'City Journal.' I heartily recommend once again that you read it in its entirety.
Illegal Alien Students
The Center for Immigration Studies in Washington D.C. estimates, according to Frosty Wooldridge, that 1.1 million illegal aliens currently occupy seats in America's classrooms and that number can only grow. And the cost to American taxpayers of educating other than American citizens? A staggering $12.0 billion annually, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (and $24 billion when you account for children born here in this country to illegal aliens).
As Mr. Wooldridge challenges parents of schoolchildren in this alarming column:
American parents must ask what kind of an education their kids receive from parents’ hard earned tax dollars. Short answer: severely degraded. No teacher can administer the educational curriculum with the chaos of 40 languages. They can’t teach with the fear of weapons and drugs in classrooms. As shown in Denver and in much of the USA, one in five teachers quit out of complete frustration.

His prescription?
What can be done? We must insist that our publicly elected leaders, first of all, stop the illegal alien invasion. We cannot survive it much longer. It creates a non-viable underclass, which in time will create hopelessness for millions. It will also create violence as their numbers grow. Second, we must insist that all people speak English in America as their first language. We cannot have foreign language television and radio stations that enhance non-assimilation. We must not allow multiple languages to be offered in any official public documents. We fracture our society and separate it into multiple language factions and an uneasy tension if we continue on this path with over 40 to 100 languages. Third, we must insist on 90 percent graduation rates from high school by ensuring that all students are here in this country legally and that they and their parents want to invest in the American Dream. Without the horrific confusion and costs of illegal alien students, we have a greater chance of realizing that kind of success.

Illegal Alien Teachers
In California alone, illegal and legal immigration have led to state agencies and California's public school districts having to grapple with adults and schoolchildren who speak over 100 different languages. The California Department of Education (CDE) 'recognizes 54 languages in data from its annual census.'
The upshot? Would you believe in Los Angeles County alone 3.8 million adults (53% of L.A. County's adult workforce) are effectively illiterate? And the numbers only get worse, as VDARE reports.
But some school districts in the United States intend to get creative in coming up with innovative solutions for educating their large, non-English speaking student populations. Enter the Dallas School District. They're considering hiring illegal alien school teachers to overcome the hurdle of bilingual education!
Some Dallas Independent School District trustees said they look forward to discussing the issue while others are treading cautiously. The district's attorneys will also participate in the discussion at today's meeting.
'I'm open to listening to the legal points they might make,' trustee Hollis Brashear said. 'But I don't know if we can discuss something that involves not complying with U.S. law.'
'We as trustees can no longer solve problems like we did 10 years ago,' Mr. Garza said. 'We have to be innovative.'
For Mr. May, no idea is too far-fetched. Last year, he successfully pushed a proposal, initially greeted with considerable skepticism, that requires some principals to become bilingual. The issue divided blacks and Hispanics and received nationwide attention.

This is precisely why America must secure its porous borders and stop the invasion. And this is why what Rep. Tom Tancredo refers to as 'Amnesty-Lite' -- namely, President Bush's proposed, Ted Kennedy-endorsed,Guest Worker Program -- must be defeated.

Maybe, just maybe, the issue of what's happening in America's classrooms will get American parents off their collective hindquarters to join the fight for border security and immigration reform sans amnesty. If they won't fight the political fight for themselves, let's hope they'll do it for their children. The K-12 public school classroom has become a microcosm of illegal immigration's deleterious effects on this country -- a veritable petri dish for the insidious Bush-Fox alliance, determined as it is to forge an 'integrated North America with open borders and a common labor market.' The children, of course, get lost in the politics and are compelled to learn Spanish, read Mexican textbooks, and, perhaps not in the too distant future, receive their education from teachers here illegally.
And do remember: quality educations are not just a function of quality teachers. Students also benefit from the quality of the students around them. If you accept that premise, this and this should give you pause.
