raise your hand if white walls make you feel like you’re trapped in an institution *raises hand* paint isn’t always a great option as a renter — who wants to paint the walls back before moving?!? however, stripes can add some color without as much work.
i separated the wall in equal portions using simple masking tape. the trick is to make the lines as straight as possible, so get bae (or a level) to help out. also be sure to have a ruler or tape measure handy to ensure your sections are the same distance apart.
voila! using a medium size brush and small roller, it only took about an hour to paint the wall. let it dry COMPLETELY before removing the tape.
