This is incredible! I love it!! =)
It's awesome girl! Love it with the ruffled linens!
A memory they will carry in their hearts forever… blessed little ones to have YOU as their mom.
Imagine me squealing with delight! I love the stripes and can't wait to see the new "Big-Girl" room! Awesome job Girls!!
What a wonderful tutorial! This turned out beautifully!
totally love the finished wall, great colour.
how much time did you give the first coat to dry before putting on the second coat? I am totally thinking I could do this…
Oh this looks so gorgeous!!!! Thanks for the tutorial and your twins are so adorable! I totally know that satisfied Mommy feeling you're talking about!!! My little one is 5 and loves to help around the house 🙂
oh this looks BEAUTIFUL! The size and color of the stripes are perfect … but I especially loved that first picture of the girls taking the stripes off – they are SO excited!! So sweet!!
The stripes look fantastic! Your daughters look like they are in heaven! Megan
Those stripes look fantastic! & your girls are so cute! Can't wait to see that "Royal" bed 😉
Cute wall! Where did you get the bedding set in the picture? Thanks
Love love love it! I just finished doing our guest bath with 10" vertical light gray stripes. I love it! Stripes are such a fun and unexpected detail.
You probably already know this, but if you use your finger to rub clear caulk along your edges, wait 6 hours, paint, then peel the tape off immediately, you get super crisp perfect lines every time. It's magical.
Oh, and your girls are positively adorable.
This is absolutely wonderful! I would love it if you could post a tutorial about how to paint chevron and make it even! It took me forever to figure out how to do it, and surely there is a better way than my method. 😉
Giirrrrrl, You made painting stripes look incredibly easy! Somehow, I don't think I could do it that well.
I'm lovin these pics of your twins helping and how happy they are. I have two grown-up girls and I know how fast this time with them is going to go. You are one smart Mom, Mrs. Smith – Keepin them close and involved in your projects is genius. Cute Cute family.
Do we get to see your office too?
Do we get to see your office too?
Can't wait to see the whole room together. I LOVE that wall 🙂 I hope I have a girl someday to decorate a "girly" room with.
Great tutorial, thanks! And I love the way the end result looks…love the gray stripes!
I LOVE the way this room turned out! I have to know where you found the white ruffle bedding. It's gorgeous! 🙂
Wow. You did such a great job!!! I love the pics of your girls. They're very photogenic. I'm going to try this on my son's wall. You mentioned making the stripes look more feminine. How would you make them more masculine?
Wow! That turned out GREAT!!! Love the tone on tone effect. You can even use it as a phot backdrop! Thanks for the tutorial. Gives me courage!
I absolutely adore the striped wall! I've often wondered whether I should try stripes but never had the guts to try!
Great job! I'm in love with that look! Someone who had stripes on her wall (that was very textured) told me that on a textured wall to keep the paint from bleeding, you take a small amount of silicone on your finger and rub it along the edges of the tape. Great tip I thought! Now I want to do stripes in my 15 yr old daughter's room. Thanks for the share. I love how the girls got to tear the tape off!
SO pretty, I love it! Do you suggest the large level over a laser level? Or is that just what you had on hand? I can't wait until I'm no longer living within rented white walls!
Love, love, love the stripes! Especially done with grays!
It looks fantastic!!! I really Love LOVE L.O.V.E. the way it turned out too! I can't wait to see how the rest of the room comes together…
I always feel with rooms that I am "in the process" of decorating that I wish I had a printer attached to my brain that could print out my vision of the room for everyone else to see along with me!!!
can't wait to see the room complete! your girls are just so cute…it is so fun to see them in the blog
Ohhh I love those stripes! I have a major stripe fetish lol Their bedding is darling too!
This looks sooo great!! Love it!! Go on girls 🙂
So fun!! Love the stripes, and you made them look perfectly professional.
Although, any background would look good with your adorable little princesses in front of it. 🙂
Oh my gosh, it gives me a headache just looking at the level. Will you pretty pretty please come paint my stripes for me??! lol It look fabulous, and I love that shade of gray. You don't often see stripes that width, seems like everyone always does big huge ones and I *love* the look of the size you did. I've also been stressing over finding the perfect SW gray for my new house and that looks perfect, I'm going to pin it right now! Lovely work, girl!
Perfect timing! I was just today thinking I need to start painting the stripes I've been dreaming about in my "mud room". Thanks for all the great tips, and it looks fantastic!!

Looks great!!! I love the idea of using a level to make sure everything is right instead of relying on the slope of the ceiling. Good call.
LOVE this tutorial! Thank you for posting this. I am totally in love with this accent wall as well, the color is perfect. The grey looks like theres a nice reflective shine to it…perfect for the princess room! Can't wait to see more updated room photos!
I love those stripes!
Your girls are the cutest – they look very proud and excited.
I was readying about the twins having twin beds but only sleeping in one. Reminded me of when my twin and I were young, we did the same thing! We only had one crib and when we got our twin beds we still wanted to sleep together. We slept together until my twin got married. Your twins are darling.
Thank you for sharing this! The whole room looks so light and airy! Your girls are so cute! I have a twin sister so I love to see other twins!
Love the horizontal stripes. ♥
I'm so glad I found your tutorial! I'm just about to paint gray stripes in my boys' bathroom and this will come in handy for sure. And funny, I have Repose Gray in the playroom.
So cute and can't wait to see the sassy headboard, but it should be mentioned that this technique will only work on smooth walls. Any sort of texture and you have to seal the tape first with modge podge, a clear sealant, or the base paint color.
WOW it came out awesome. Great job.
Just found your blog & LOVE the stripes…especially in gray and white.
Wow, that looks really nice! I would be so scared to mess it up! But you guys did a great job! 🙂
love your blog x thank you !
Baby Please Don't Go
love your blog x thank you !
Baby Please Don't Go
Oh my gosh Shelly hurry up with the reveal! I am dying over here!!! Lol but really I can't WAIT to see your fresh ideas for the twins space. Need some inspiration to finally finish up my 7 year olds room.
Love the stripes!!!
Hi Shelley! I've been reading your blog for some time but now that we've moved into our home, I stop by your blog constantly! I feel so overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done but reading HOS gives me the inspiration and energy to keep going and I wanted to thank you for that. 😀
I also love those gray paint swatches you posted! I might just have a go at a striped wall!
I want to do this to my living area so bad!! I've been consistently trying to convince my husband how visually pleasing it would be for almost a year…but still no luck. I love the use of the smaller lines too – pretty!
But, I really kept going back to the first picture of the post to look at how AMAZING you look! Good job! Keep it up 🙂 You're an inspiration- I lost about 25lbs but then have hit a plateau for a few months now…
Love you and your blog!
I did this once and messed up big time. Got it right in the end though 🙂 You make it look and sound easy. But most of all you make it gorgeous. Love the stipy wall. Love your little helpers too.
Looks great! I always use a laser level (inexpensive at harbor freight) when painting stripes. It makes taping off go a lot faster! 🙂 Love your blog!
Loved these so much, I finally broke down & painted a striped wall using your tutorial. Hopefully, I inserted the links correctly on my blog. Please check & see. I'm new @ this, so feel free to correct me! doandredo.wordpress.com
Your wall looks beautiful and you sure do put together great posts! I have this linked to my stripes project post as well today, it's an awesome tutorial!
I love how you get your kids involved in your projects. That's really cute.
These turned out so well! I also did some grey/white stripes in my house (though I did them vertically… So much more annoying). Reading through this post and seeing how your grey and white stripes looked definitely helped me convince my husband that it would look good in our bathroom! Thanks, and I love your blog!
This turned out really beautifully.
