Chevron wall

I mentioned on Monday that I have been working on my daughter's bedroom. I'm not quite 100% done with the room, but I wanted to share my favorite part. The chevron wall!

I've been wanting to do one somewhere in our home, and with a little persuasion {okay a lot} she finally agreed to let me do it in her room.

There are a million and one tutorials out there, but I followed the one by Sarah from the yellow cape cod. Her tutorial was easy to follow even for someone like me who is math challenged!

I began by painting the entire room what would be the base color {lighter color} of the pattern. My husband helped me measure and mark all of the lines. It's hard to tell in the photo but I marked everything lightly in pencil.

I taped off the lines and then got to painting.

The completed wall.

This was so much easier then I had imagined! It does help to have an extra pair of hands for the measuring and marking.

I can't wait to show you the room once it's completed!
