I started by googling and looking at Pinterest for inspiration and how-tos. There are a ton out there, so I won't go step by step in how I achieved the look. The most important thing is to make sure your tape lines are level and that you paint a layer of your base color over the tape before your accent color.
I used paint I already had on hand - Valspar's Swoosh (lighter) and Dust Storm (darker)
I only did two stripes for a couple of reasons but the main one was because it was a pain to make sure my lines were straight. Note to self - buy a bigger level.
I think it turned out pretty good! I added an accent mirror I picked up for $12 at Homegoods and spray painted a bright green, and added a small rug for more color.
I ended up painting the shelf the same color as the baseboards and stained the clothes rod to better match the floors.
Overall, a success! On to the next project!
