I finally jumped on the chevron bandwagon and made some chevron wall art.
And here is how I did it.
I started with a piece of wood (I used luan), and black & white acrylic craft paint. The luan was left over from another project so it was already cut to size and sanded.
First I painted the board white. I wanted it to look uneven and rough so I just slapped it on there with a sponge brush. After the paint was dry I taped off the zigs and the zags. I eyeballed the taping (no measuring) so the lines are not even. I am ok with this- imperfect crafts are right up my alley. If you want it to be even, you will have to measure it all out.
After all that taping was done, I painted over the board and the tape with the black paint. I only used 1 coat because I wanted it to look uneven and I knew I was going to sand anyway.
After the black paint was dry I peeled the tape off.
Then I went crazy with the sand paper.
To hang it, I used my go to art hanger- 3m velcro hooks. They are the best!!! Perfect for a perpetual mind changer and re-arranger like me.
I hung the art on a lonely wall in my bathroom.
Every time I walk it there, it's the first think I notice. It's bold, graphic and a little big shabby. I love it!!
