Lately I have been incredibly bored with our cream colored walls and while I have things in the works for a few of our walls I still had bare areas. Then I found this idea on Pinterest: Chevron Wall Art. Two things I LOVE right now: Chevron Design and Gold- um perfect right!? Plus the original post found here is super helpful, has a great tutorial, and gives you a link to print our the chevron design! Score.
Here is how mine turned out:
[ I <3 them]
I started with the three pack of 20 x 20 canvas on sale at Joanns and printed out the chevron pattern
Then using a push pin and the tutorial found here I made marks of where the tape should go:
And continued that process until all three canvases were ready to go!
Be sure to really smooth down the tape :)
I used Martha Stewart's Paint in Gold and applied a thin coat first
Then, once that dried I applied a thick coat of paint - going with the chevron pattern.
One they were totally dry I carefully pulled of the tape:
And put them up on our walls!
The whole project cost me $25 dollars and about three hours! There are a few spots where the pain got under the tape but it is not noticeable unless you are right in front of it! I am super happy with the end result.
What is your favorite quick and easy wall decor??
