Ok so I decided to paint strips on my daughters walls. that was well A LOT OF WORK!!! I painted a base coat then marked the a dot at the top and bottom of the wall. I used a long board to make how I wanted the strips to look then used the board to mark the wall it went a lot faster that just measuring every time I need to make a mark. I drew arrows so that I know where to paint. it was a lot of work but when we pulled the strips off the wall it was so worth it.
