Striped Nursery Wall Tutorial

To create the striped wall behind the changing table, we started off by measuring how tall we wanted each stripe.  Then we masked off and painted.  We decided to add trim to each side to finish it off, and to tie into the trim work we did behind the crib.

Tip:  I wrote the color on small pieces of tape and stuck them next to each stripe to keep me straight when painting.

paint one color at a time, let dry + go onto the next

i suggest using Frog Tape- it provides the cleanest lines when painting stripes!

I always buy pre-painted trim.  It will run you a few dollars more per piece, but it’s totally worth it for the time you save in painting.  We ran a bead of liquid nails on each strip then applied to the wall.  The Mr. then hit each one with the nail gun a few times to ensure adhesion.  Fill in the nail holes and caulk around both sides and you’re done!

Decorate + enjoy!  Little Mr. just loves staring up at this wall during changes.  It’s his favorite thing to look at in his room 🙂
