Stripes scared straight

*Yall (in my southern voice) The weather is crazy! We were in a blackout for hours. We were in the blackout so long, my laptop went dead. Luckily I had my company laptop which lasted right up until the lights came on at just about midnight!!! Literally 10 minutes away from it shutting down. My kids were scared, I couldn't find matches, no batteries, really not enough candles, watching the sky change colors and wind blow so hard that it feels like my skylight is gonna fly off is frightening because you have NO CONTROL. Last April this happened and we woke to damage all around the city. I am afraid to see what I drive out to in the morning.*
I love stripes and hope to one day so something special with them. Below are some great examples of how stripes done right can be ALLLLLLLRIGHT!

Nice I love stripes too. I hope your weather is better today and not any damage. Mother nature is really up to no good!

I totally dig this but would never attempt to do it on my own. black and white is SO unforgiving. One little bleed under the tape and KaPOW.

I'm a DIY girl but wouldn't touch this!
