Laundry Room

I need to still add two more stripes on the wall to the left but I'm waiting for my husband to move the washing machine. It might be like this for a few more months... ;-)

When painting stripes, do you paint it all one color first and then the stripe on top (white, in your case)?

You can try one of two ways:

Use painters tape (the blue tape) is the your best friend. Mask off the stripes that are all going to be the same color and then paint. Let dry — I suggest a day — then come back and mask off other stripes.


I have painted the entire wall the lightest color, then came back a day later, and masked off the darker stripes. This helps camouflage any slight imperfections with your masking. (No white walls will show from where you didn't line up the tape — as in the first technique).

Most front loading washer and dryers come in sizes that range (compact)24"-27" wide. Therefore the two together are about 48"-54" inches wide. So the room is about 5'-0" wide.

The depth of the room is hard to say from this picture.
