One of my favorite parts is pulling the tape
As you can see, I had to adjust my pink. Once I started laying down tape, I could see that my vertical lines were going to cause my pink portion to look squatty -- because I am also going to do a horizontal band around the room, which would have taken even more from the pink. The stripes would have looked way too tall for that short of a room.
Oh, and the windows are not even close to level with each other, so I had to configure my horizontal band in a manner that would hide, rather than accentuate that detail -- which is why I had it higher in the first place. Plan B is working just as well and once I get crafty with the window treatment, you will never know...
sidenote update: for those of you who read of my paint finish choice/life meltdown (thank you for your sweet support, it felt great -- you guys rock). After my firm decision to go satin, I went with eggshell. I just couldn't do the shine of satin along with that bright pink on flawed walls -- the flat-er finish is beautiful.
The white is eggshell and the black is satin -- for extra pop and eggshell gets chalky smudges on the darker colors -- so satin wins with lower wall black.
