I watched an old episode of Trading Spaces and saw a neat paint idea. The designer painted the walls all one color and then taped 2 foot vertical stipes and painted them with polyurethane. It was gorgous! I would like to give it a try but can I just repaint over the poly when I get ready for a change? I plan on doing it in realitively small master bedroom, would the paint technique make our room look even smaller? Any advice would be appreicated!

When you're ready to change after the poly is applied etc ,,you can paint , but you will have to prime over it first with a sealing primer like Binz or Xim , Kilz etc. A light sanding on the poly would not hurt either before you prime. It wont make the room look small , it may even give a "raise" effect , just like a shirt with vertical lines does.
