Paint Some Stripes – But Ditch the Paint!

I ran across an image on Pinterest that caught my eye -this fabulous striped floor in Kate Spade’s flagship New York store.

Have you ever had a secret desire to paint stripes or some other cool pattern on your floors, but were too chicken to try?  Guess what?  That floor wasn’t painted at all – it was created with colorful vinyl tape!

Imagine what you could do with a little of this inexpensive product.

Maybe you could stripe a wall like this:

 Or create a unique design on a previously-uninteresting furniture piece.

 Striped decor of all kinds –  the possibilities are endless.

And waaaayyy less commitment than paint!  What do you think – gonna run out and buy some vinyl tape?

I just might! It’s in keeping with the vinyl wall decals we just put up in Kaleigh’s room. Love the no commitment and easy to remove part 🙂

Very pretty. I wonder how the tape on the floor holds up over time. Anyone know?

That stairwell is cool! That’s one of those projects that you’d ask yourself why it seemed like a good idea to do at the time, and then when it was done you’d forget!

I love this idea. I have ugly linoleum in my entryway so it would be fun to give the vinyl tape a try for a short-term solution.

I love this idea–seems so much easier than taping off lines and painting!

I think it would last on the walls A LOT longer than on the stairs. Fun idea just not sure how practical.

That Kate Spade floor is really cool. I won’t be trying this technique anytime soon but I think it’s a great idea that could be applied to many different areas.

I just wanted to tell you that we saw a pillow in Boston Design Center- front only was made with different sizes and colors of ribbon. Looked on the same idea as this. Price tag- $ 510.00 each! And you know you need to buy two.

Two dogs, two boys – vinyl pillows sound like a grand plan to me. Love decorative tape projects and there’s so much to choose from right now in the way of creative crafting materials.
