Great advice! I did this ten years ago and still love it, could have used your tips! I incorporated my chair rail to make it disappear a bit.

I read somewhere that you shouldn't paint over pencil marks. Is that a concern here?

Great video with thoughtful details. What do you do if the stripe you paint needs a second coat? Do you leave the tape on and hope it doesn't pull of the paint?
