Layers of Meaning... DIY Chevron Wall

I've seen quite a few people painting chevron patterns on their walls....& yes, I like it! Maria from Layers of Meaning & her husband have done just that by taking on this DIY project.  Personally, I think it creates an interesting impact to her living room...and perhaps in my next home, I will think of trying something similar. 


This is a great option for those of you who are SCARED to death of wallpaper!! I know this process of painting stripes, chevrons etc. may take a awhile, but from Maria's results I think it's well worth it! You can ALWAYS paint over it if you don't like it right??  And for all you MARRIED ladies....ask your husbands for a helping hand.  You can see all the pics & read more about it on her blog

  3. Love how modern the stripes feel - I guess you would need a very steady hand (and husband!)

  4. It takes me to the 70's. I am sure it works in some rooms, not a whole room.

  18. It is like the DIY Imperial Trelis over at the Hello Gorgeous Blog. It looked sooo tedious but the results were fab! I wish I had the patience for something like that hehe.

  19. Very cool!
    I've seen several chevron DIY projects around there... I did one myself, http://adventuresindressmaking.blogspot.com/2010/01/i-am-so-proud-of-my-diy-zig-zag-rug.html,
    and it and a few others are on Design Sponge and around...

    and

    There are different tools you can use... tape works, but I found that freezer paper worked best on fabric for my rug.
    I looove chevron patterns!
