Striped Porch

Spray on Stripes

Sometimes a simple paint makeover isn't enough to make a distinctive decorative impact. Add some stripes to bring graphic interest to the interior of a clapboard porch.

DIFFICULTY: Beginner

SPRAY ON STRIPES

The porch began its life with a coat of baby blue paint. Wanting something a bit more interesting, the homeowner went with traditional white house paint and a shade of green that also coats the floor, window frames and porch column details.

PAINT WALL

Fill the FLEXiO 4000 cup with the base paint. Spray the wall in a horizontal pattern working left to right from the top of the wall. Hold the sprayer 6-8 inches from the surface and glide over the wall. Repeat until entire wall has been sprayed with paint.

LET DRY AND ADD PAINTER'S TAPE

Let the wall dry thoroughly before using painter's tape. Add your stripe pattern to the wall using painter's tape applied above and below the space you desire to spray. Mask off all areas you want to protect from overspray with Tape & Drape or with wide painter's tape.
