So, I have an idea. I've been rolling it around in my head for awhile (like, for the last year!), but I think I'm gonna go for it. I want to stripe my hallway.
Every October, Chris goes to California for a couple days. Which means, every October I take on a painting project that's a complete surprise to him. My boldest yet was painting our bedroom dark gray. Now, there is nothing wrong with our current hallway. I basically just have an itch to stripe something and I think it would look great in our hallway. Are there a million other projects I should be finishing first? Um, YES: I'm looking at you back porch and sewing room. But, really, I'm sure we can all agree that updating your home is nothing if not a little chaotic and non-linear.
Of course, I've been eyeing gorgeously striped rooms on Pinterest.
I'm leaning towards subtle stripes. They're gorgeous.
But, it's hard to deny that bold stripes are just completely amazing.
Especially when I see this hallway.
I found this great tutorial today over at Honey and Fitz. I don't plan on creating gradiated stripes (although hers are amazing), but I really like Dina's technique.
So, I think I'm all set. I just need to decide: to stripe BOLD or to strip SUBTLE.
Any suggestions friends?
