It took a lot of tape and a lot of patience when I painted the stripes in my foyer. My friend Diane would stop in and check out my progress. She didn’t believe that I would ever get done. Vintage stucco walls do not wallpaper well and I really wanted to see a pattern in the foyer. I’m happy with the way it turned out. Stripes are timeless. The staircase pictures are changed out seasonally so the summer pictures are just about ready to go up.
