Chevron Art

The other day I was thinking about how I would like to have something chevron.  I had a huge canvas that I had gotten for my birthday.  I remembered I had "liked" a "how to make perfect chevron lines" from pinterest, so I was off to work.

I needed to make square boxes all over the canvas, so I measured off the size boxes I needed, and used a level to draw perfectly straight lines with a pencil.  When that was done, I used painters tape and taped  from corner to corner.

When I was done taping I erased all the pencil lines with Magic Erase.  It is seriously magic, good bye pencil lines.

This is how it looked after that.

I then painted in every other line with black paint.

Then I painted in the other lines with grey/silver paint.
I couldn't wait to take that tape off, there was minimal bleeding of colors in the lines that I had to touch up.

This is how she looked.

Then I dressed up the console table below.  This is in our downstairs.  I have big plans for this room.

What do you think?  I think it turned out pretty cool.


  1. Wow! This looks great Heather! I like that it's versatile and you can move it to refresh another space with pattern later on. Will you be painting the cabinet under it too?

    Thx for the email - Have a wonderful weekend!
