Try This: Playing With Paint

Here’s a nothing-to-it painting technique that yields gorgeous results.

1. Paint a smooth-surface wall with flat-finish wall paint (we used Olympic’s zero-VOC interior latex, available from Lowe’s). Let dry completely. Measure wide stripes with a yardstick or level and mark lightly with a pencil. The stripes shown here are 7 inches wide.
