Addiction with Chevron

I adore Chevron, I’m still trying to figure out what it is that attracts me to it. Unfortunately I can’t figure that part out yet, maybe its the colorful pattern, or just about anything can go with it, chevron  doesn’t discriminate against any color. The possibilities are endless when using this amazing pattern.

We just moved into a new house at the end of February and so I’ve been searching inexpensive ways to update our home from bhg do it yourself magazine and threw emails that I get from other blogs in such.

This awesome post by Diane @ inmyowndesign.com posted this really cool exciting way to transform old thrift shop furniture into a beautiful chalkboard cabinet, also she gives 12 ideas on how to makeover a cabinet.. She also gives a couple free printable templates on how to active this look.

Here is another post she goes into detail of how to do the stencil and is very helpful, I have found my new found blog crush…

And, the top chalkboard wreath she gives free downloadable templates on how to do this as well…

I can not wait to try this out, I am especially excited to look for the bead board textured paintable wallpaper, I just want to say I love the way Diane designed this and I thank her for sharing this if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t know none of these things.

The other post I found is from bhg Do It Yourself magazine from Fall/Winter 2012 (i believe)

They show small diy vases to painting a whole wall of Chevron pattern…

This is so inexpensive, you can go to the thrift shop and get vases for a $1.00 or less then use blue tape and do your chevron pattern.. Great thing about this is you don’t have to have this perfect, it is not a straight line..  This will give me practice to achieve what I would like..

Here is another post by Diane @ inmyownstyle

I absolutely love love love the way this looks, and again Diane has explainned from the very beginning to the end… She did such an amazing job with this once again it looks professionally made. There is tons of things she has on her blog tons of furniture make overs to small things like dollar store flowers. I will not be able to get anything done if I dont stop soon.
