I'm pleased with the end result, and the project was a relatively easy undertaking, so I thought I'd share with you my step-by-step process in case you're lusting after the striped look as well.
If your wall is not already one of the stripe colors you are wanting, you'll want to paint the entire wall one of the desired shades first, and allow at least a day for that paint to thoroughly dry.
To begin the striping process, you'll want to make markings that will help you tape off the borders of your stripes. For my wall, I decided to make stripes that were one foot wide. Using a ruler (or in my case, a foot long piece of cardboard, because for the life of me, I couldn't find our ruler) beginning at the ceiling, and working your way across the wall, make small, LIGHT pencil marks one foot below where the ceiling meets the wall every foot or so.
Here is my entry wall before:
-Paint (Behr Swiss Coffee)
-Angled paint brush
-Wide painter's tape
-Ruler (or 12 inch piece of cardboard!)
