"After the base coat is dry, measure the wall, starting in the corner that's the least seen," explains Jackie. "Use a tape measure to mark the lines corresponding to the width of the stripes.

An odd number of stripes will ensure the stripes at the corners are the same color. This makes the design more cohesive."
