It’s no secret that I’m wild about stripes. Not only will you find them in many of my designs on both stationery and fabric, but they’re also on my wall! My washi tape wall is one of the many house projects I’ve worked on since moving.
There was no method or plan to washi-ing my wall. I just got a chair, grabbed some tape and got to work. I didn’t measure anything or sketch out the color scheme for the stripes. Whatever color I reached for, was what I put up next. It felt a lot like designing. Some of the stripes came out uneven, which I’m fine with. Washi tape is so forgiving. I was able to pull it off and on as many times as needed. The only tape I had problems with was the yellow striped tape, which I ended up using rubber cement to secure it to the wall.
It’s been a little over a month, the tape hasn’t fallen off and I still haven’t grown tired on the stripes. They’re the perfect punch of color and happiness!
