Damask Wallpaper~a ScotchBlue Painting Project

Welcome to the ScotchBlue™ Painting Party! 
A group of DIY bloggers, including myself, all completed projects with the help of ScotchBlue Painter's Tape with Edge-Lock Paint Line Protector.  We're giving you the chance to gather some inspiration and win prizes!  After seeing what I did, you can start at the beginning of the the party to see more tutorials,
 so head to Kristen's blog at: 


Here is my ScotchBlue project!
Ok, so my hallway needed a little pizazz!  I jumped at the chance to try out the new painters tape with edgelock by Scotchblue. My design plan involved stripes and a stencil.  My tools were simply a level, a pencil, a stencil, two paint colors, a paintbrush and roller and a roll of Scotchblue painters tape. First, decide how wide you want your stripes and make a light pencil mark along the wall at the top, middle and bottom using a level. Then connect the marks with the painters tape. It is really that easy. I did not get all analytical about this part, because that's not how I roll.  
 
I made 18" wide stripes with 10" spaces.
 Fill in the painted space with your chosen paint color (I used cream on top of the lavender walls).
Continue taping along the space.
 I painted the first stripe and stenciled my
pattern right away to make sure I liked it~why, yes I did!!
You will see more of that part later....
 The rest of the wall gets taped and painted.
 Now for the fun part, peeling off the tape!
This leaves a clean straight line with no paint bleed.
 Being thrifty, I reused the painters tape for securing the stencil pattern to the center of the stripe.
 I used the same color as the base for the stencil pattern.
 This whole hallway only took me a couple of hours.
 It gave me a dramatic effect, at little expense and effort.
Now its time to play around and glam it up!
The reason I only did one wall, was because I used
different ornate cream colored mirrors on the other side.
I added a leopard chair at the end of the hallway...
Some silk pink strie draperies and all of  a sudden
 this hallway had gone from neutral to glam in a hurry.
 The wide stripes gave me the look of wallpaper, at a bargain price.
My hallway, before.....
My hallway, after!
 Thank you Scotchblue!
