Stripes- Take Two!!!

A few weeks ago I attempted to paint horizontal stripes down my hallway.  To see my first attempt visit here. Well after living with the lovely lavender stripes for a few weeks I knew something had to be done!  So I went back to my original color scheme and saved my hallway from the ugliness..

Here is what it looked like before:

I really tried to love it, but it just didn't grow on me.

Here you can see one wall done compared to the old color..

Taped and ready for paint.

Ahh, much better!

I love the results!  It really helps break up all the beige monotony.

I hope you enjoyed my little hallway makeover!

WOW, you have some energy to do all that work!

I hope it is growing on you now! The new color does look better coming off of the other rooms.

I love the stripes! Great job both times! I can't believe you were willing to go at it again. The stripes in my sons big boy room did me in!!! My first and probably last time...Okay maybe last time for a while!
