Christina's Colorful Stripe DIY Wall Mural

Reader Project

Pin it button big

Christina is an Apartment Therapy reader from LA who recently completed what she calls "the most tedious and time-consuming wall painting project" she's ever done. But she's happy with the (super colorful!) results and sent in a few photos and some info to share...

Christina writes: I wanted to send some pics of the stripes I just painted in my apt. in downtown Los Angeles. I got the idea from a photo I saw online of a German painter who did similar work to the walls in her studio. I'd never seen anything like it before, and from those who have seen my place, it seems no one has either. It was probably the most tedious and time-consuming wall painting project I've ever done, but I'm loving the results of all the sweat and patience.

Thanks, Christina! All that color is a perfect foil to your all-white furnishings.
