STEP 1: Wipe walls with the clean, damp cloth to prepare painting surface.

STEP 2: Lay down a drop cloth to protect floors; affix painter's tape to baseboards, ceiling and any molding or trim.

STEP 3: Apply paint just inside taped areas with the angled brush, then paint the remainder of the walls with the woven roller; remove painter's tape while paint is still damp; allow paint to dry 24 hours.

STEP 4: Decide on stripe width and lightly mark with the pencil the top and bottom of the stripe; use the level to lightly draw horizontal stripe lines along walls.

STEP 5: Affix edge of the painter's tape to the outside of the top and bottom lines, applying pressure to ensure a tight seal with the walls.

STEP 6: Using the woven roller, paint the accent color inside the taped lines; use the angled brush in corners.

STEP 7: Remove the painter's tape while paint is still damp; clean up any mistakes with the clean, damp cloth; allow paint to dry, following suggested drying time on the can label.
