racing stripe furniture: bold wins it

It's amazing how adding one big fat stripe can instantly modernize a super traditional piece of furniture, or bring interest to a lackluster one. I've been finding myself drawn to this look more and more lately for those very reasons, especially when done in stark black and white/neutral or bold global patterns. If I had a steadier hand and a bit more luck with painters tape I might already be priming my dresser . . .
