Math Skills (you may want to double check with a friend)
First off, start with measuring your wall from top to bottom. I didn't want the stripe to include the baseboard so I subtracted that out. Overall, I had 96" to work with, after taking out the baseboards I was left with 91", so I did 7 - 13" stripes.
Start with painting the entire wall with the lightest color you are using. It's always easier to go over a lighter color then a darker one.
Next set up your laser level 13" down from the top, then take the yardstick and pencil and trace along the line all the way across the wall.
Notice how the sections you are going to paint are larger than the other sections. That is because you want to place the tape above the top pencil mark and below the bottom one.
I placed some little tape squares in the sections I didn't want to paint to make it easier to tell apart. Then paint your darker color.
Pull off the tape before it's dry, that way you'll have a crisp clean line!
