I’m on a bit of a chevron kick these days. And when I say ‘a bit’ I mean I’m a little obsessed. Both chevron and ikat patterns are popping up all over blogs and magazines and they make my heart all a’flutter. While ikat is especially lovely, it’s also especially pricey, and frustratingly hard to find in fabric wider than 39″ wide.
Chevron, however, is not only more accessible, it’s also makes an easy DIY project. Check out this chevron wall made from contact paper:
As exciting as that sounds, Mrs. Sabbespot herself had to recall her terrific idea, noting that contact paper can ruin drywall. Sadface! Because there’s a good chance my new apartment (wherever you are) will be drywall, I will need to get my chevron fix elsewhere.
I’ve imagined all kinds of exciting ways to incorporate chevron into my new apartment. I have a chair that, while extremely comfortable, is a very odd, rusty shade of brown. I prefer a more chocolate brown and have wanted to recover it since the day I got it, but my search for a chocolate/white chevron fabric has proved unsuccessful.
But as luck would have it, I stumbled upon a much cheaper and easier avenue for making my chevron dreams come true. Makeundermylife has this incredibly simple chevron tutorial done on white canvases with a bit of painters tape.
So simple, yet so chic, don’t you think?
Has anyone seen other fabulous uses for chevron that are inexpensive?
