Strie Paint Treatment in 3 Easy Steps
Accent a wall or the backs of bookcases with this easy three-step paint treatment. Although it looks rich, it is fairly smooth so it's easy to paint over if you tire of the look.
We used a strie brush for this decorative paint treatment; you can use any old brush. Fine, closely spaced bristles equal finer stripes. The farther apart your paint colors are in tone, the more noticeable the strie pattern will be. Test colors and techniques on a piece of cardboard before committing to your walls.
