Hailee’s Hallway with the ScotchBlue Painting Party!

You guys have NO IDEA how amazing Hailee’s living room is turning out.  Its like the Epic Room Makeover x 100000000000000000.

Today I am partying with ScotchBlue and these awesome bloggers to show you some fun things that you can do.

Welcome to the ScotchBlue™ Painting Party! A group of fantastic DIY bloggers, including myself, all completed projects with the help of ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape with Edge-Lock™ Paint Line Protector. Now we’re giving you the chance to see all of our fabulous projects and get some inspiration!! If you’d like to start at the beginning of the party and see more tutorials then head to Dina’ s blog and follow the great projects one after another!

You’ll also get a chance to win some ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape so you can create a project of your own. Just read to the end to find out how!

So I decided to give you a sneak peek into Hailee’s hallway.  Pretty much this is one of my most favorite painting projects ever.

DIY Striped Chevron Wall Treatment


And it was super easy!

Start by measuring your stripes.  I used a paint stir stick for all of the measurements.  Literally all of them.

There was a lot of changing things up as we went.  So for you to duplicate the end result you will just have to hold on tight.  The pictures may seem out of order but it will turn out fine.  Promise.

First you paint your base color:

Then you are going to take a level or a laser level and draw light pencil lines around the space.

After you do that its time to tape!  I love the Edgelock tons.  It had great adhesion.

One thing to remember that when you are taping off lines you need to put the tape on the inside of the lines that are going to be your wall color.  That way your stripes will be the same.

Now for the chevron… Like I said earlier the idea evolved like it so often does here…

Mark the center of your stripe: (I did this with masking tape)

Then measure the distance that you want your zig to go and draw a line.

Start your tape at the top of one line and bring it down to the bottom of the next line (or visa versa)

Here is where we changed it up.  See in the above pic how the points cross into the horizontal line? That is cause I was originally going to paint just the stripes teal, so in order for the chevrons that have points we had to move the horizontal tape.

To get a perfect point just use a razor blade.  You cant tell I promise.

This is what it should look like when its done.

Ombre Lampshade 017

The secret to getting perfect lines is to paint your base color over the top of the tape.  Works every time!

Here is what it looks like with the tape off of the taupe stripe and still on the teal stripe:

Peel while you paint is still wet and you will get cleaner lines!

And there you go!!  Awesome project right!?

Love Your Guts


  • Dina 28.09.2011 at 16:22

    Love the color combination you guys went with! Talk about adding some omph to a formerly plain hall. I love it!

  • Jean 28.09.2011 at 16:26

    Love the teal. I would use the scotch blue tape to help with painting my ceiling.

  • Peggy 28.09.2011 at 16:46

    Love the stripes! Our eldest (a senior in high school) has asked me to repaint his new bedroom just like his old room which means striped walls! This tape would make my job so much easier and quicker!

  • 28.09.2011 at 16:54

    That hallway is crazy fun!

  • Brynalyn 28.09.2011 at 17:18

    I always need tape, because I’m always starting some new painting project – up next may be a charcoal gray wall in our living room, although since we’re renting I have to decide if it’s worth the effort to paint and then paint back to renter’s beige in a short amount of time…

  • Maury 28.09.2011 at 17:43

    That’s seriously amazing! What a bold statement. LOVE IT. I’d have to use it on my dining room which has required lots of painters tape (I’m currently on roll #3 for the room and not done!)

  • Maury 28.09.2011 at 17:44

    I tweeted about it!

  • Jackie 28.09.2011 at 18:13

    OMG, You rocked it again. And we haven’t even seen everything.. I love the stripes and the chevron. Love the wood work your doing too. Just getting ready to do that in my room finally… Can you please show us some more of your fun??? Pretty Please…

  • 518Interiors 28.09.2011 at 18:59

    Oh my goodness, Mandi. I just discovered your blog & now 2 hours have passed (& my daughter’s naptime with it..oops). So inspiring! Love so many of your projects. I’m definitely going to try your acid mirror project TODAY. (So what if I have 10,000 other projects waiting)
    Thanks for the inspiration!!

  • Jody 28.09.2011 at 19:06

    That hallway looks incredible! Great job! Oooo, this tape would be a big help for painting the gray stripes I want to do on a small vintage school chair I found at a yard sale. Its too girly right now (someone handpainted flowers on it); I need to boy it up a bit for my little man.

  • ~ Karina B.~ 28.09.2011 at 19:15

    I would love some Scotch blue tape! I want to section off a wall in my toddler’s room and paint him a chalk wall!

  • Ashley 28.09.2011 at 20:14

    I would use my tape for painting stripes in my daughters room!

  • Amy 28.09.2011 at 20:15

    Love it! I would use the tape to try out a chevron pattern on a dresser I have:)

  • Ora 28.09.2011 at 22:16

    *GASP* Take that gasp literally because I’m DYING to see the rest. I love love love the colors!

  • Amanda Hill 28.09.2011 at 22:58

    Fan freakin tastic!

  • 29.09.2011 at 02:12

    Wow, love your guts. I painted a turquoise stripe around my bathroom, using the “other” tape. Didn’t work so well. Would love some of the “real” scottsblue tape to re-do it. Can’t wait to see the rest of the project!

  • Miranda 29.09.2011 at 02:57

    OHMYWORD that’s awesome!! My bedroom is desperately in need of an updated paint job. I want to paint a big, chunky chevron pattern on one wall as an accent. I think it’ll turn out fantastic but some tape would def help. 😉

  • Rach H @ FamilyEverAfter 29.09.2011 at 03:05

    amazing!!! that hallway is gorg. i’d use it in our master bedroom, which i’m starting next month for hubbie’s b-daY suprise!

  • wardie's mom 29.09.2011 at 03:28

    I need some Scotch blue to tape off my trim and get a nice clean line!

  • Sherika Lovett Alston 29.09.2011 at 04:12

    Wow….I hope to be brave enough to do something like that in my home! Looks awesome! I used scotchblue tape to paint a stripe around the top qbd bottom of our entryway console table.

  • Mrs T 29.09.2011 at 06:57

    I would use the tape to create a border around the ceiling my my bathroom.

  • Mrs T 29.09.2011 at 06:57

    I tweeted about ScotchBlueBrand

  • JSims 29.09.2011 at 07:21

    I would use the tape to paint my bedroom that needs a serious makeover.

  • JSims 29.09.2011 at 07:25

    I tweeted it ;D

  • Anonymous 29.09.2011 at 11:04

    LOVE the colors but not feeling the overall design :( It seems like something you’d be dying to repaint in 6 months.

  • 29.09.2011 at 12:19

    One word: amazeballs!


  • Lisa 29.09.2011 at 12:33

    This is fabulous, looks like something I would (will?) see in a magazine! I will be flip flopping my kids bedrooms this winter and have lots of fabulous painting ideas that this tape would greatly help with!

  • Lisa 29.09.2011 at 12:35

    I tweeted! (‘scuse me)

  • Kaci * Little Piles Everywhere 29.09.2011 at 12:46

    We are going to attempt stripes for my oldest daughters bedroom. So this would be super handy! Thanks!

  • Kaci * Little Piles Everywhere 29.09.2011 at 12:47

    I’m a fan of Scotch Blue on Facebook.

  • Thereasa Gargano 29.09.2011 at 13:34

  • Tina B 29.09.2011 at 14:22

    OMG…Chevron Heaven! Love the color pallet you chose, too. I have been looking for a way to make my stairwell “invite” you upstairs and I think you’ve given my my next project. Hope I win some Scotch Blue!

  • Athena 29.09.2011 at 15:52

    That looks fantastic. I would love to try this tape out on a dresser project.

  • Megan @ Megity's Handmade 29.09.2011 at 16:03

    Makes me wish that I had a hallway to paint!! I’m itching to add some personality to my front room! That’s what I would use the tape for.

  • LuciRae 29.09.2011 at 16:07

    OMG that turned out fantastic!! Can’t wait to see the rest:)

  • Mignon 29.09.2011 at 16:12

    Brazen, bold, and beautiful!

  • Madeline 29.09.2011 at 18:03

    That is amazing! I wish I could that to my walls. Amazing.

  • AB 29.09.2011 at 18:26

    I would use Scotch Blue Tape to revamp my living room. I just painted it a fun yellow and now all the molding needs a new fresh coat of white paint!

  • Melissa 29.09.2011 at 20:22

    Wow—amazing look on that way. I’d use the tape in my bedroom to make some stripey design on the 2 remaining white walls.

  • Emily Wilkins 01.10.2011 at 02:40

    I don’t have a project in mind yet, but I’m sure I’ll come up with something!

  • Brycie @ Reenie Jae Creations 01.10.2011 at 16:18

    This is SPECTACULAR! I love it!

  • Jennifer Rizzo 03.10.2011 at 18:45

    What a huge difference! I love how the colors contrast. I need to do vertical stripes.

  • angela 04.10.2011 at 01:48

    LOVE IT! I can’t wait to see the rest of the room. We are on the edge of our seat!

  • Christine Gant 04.10.2011 at 14:47

    I’ve been wanting to try Scotch Blue, and I have several painting projects waiting on me!

  • Linh C. 07.10.2011 at 02:54

    Wow, that’s an awesome wall! I’d like to try painting stripes on something a little smaller like an old dresser we have.

  • Tamcat 12.10.2011 at 22:27

    OMG!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your room re-d0. Did I mention that I LOVE it!?!

  • Bethany 06.07.2012 at 21:20

    Love, love, love the Chevron shape. I’m going to use the Scotch Blue tape to recreate this project in my son’s room. Awesome.

  • Bethany 06.07.2012 at 21:21

    Love, Love, Love the Chevron shape! I would use the Scotch Blue Painter’s tape to recreate this same effect in my son’s room. Awesome idea!
