Crazy about Chevron

I am obsessed with chevron! Not the oil company, but the super cute pattern that keeps popping up on Pinterest. My newest project is a cute little table with a chevron pattern painted on the table top. Hopefully I'll be done with it this weekend and be able to show everyone. Until then, I've gathered a collection of the cutest chevron finds from Pinterest. Some finds have great tutorials and others can be used for inspiration. Enjoy!

I absolutely love this wall art! Cute for a girl’s room or nursery. It’s $34 on Etsy.

This is a super cute lamp courtesy of Shades of Light. It’s $372, but I could totally see this as a DIY project.

This is a great tutorial for painting a chevron pattern on anything. The fact that it’s on a lazy susan makes it even better.

Here’s a very cute table setting for a wedding in Malibu. The yellow is a fantastic choice, and the chevron table runner adds a nice touch.

These pillow covers are just too darn cute! I love the two-toned chevron patterns. The large pillow cover is $29 at West Elm, but for those who sew, it is a DIY project in the making.

Halloween is coming soon, and we'll all be putting out our decorations. This is a fun tutorial on painting chevron stripes on a plain orange pumpkin to liven it up.

And, last but not least, a tutorial on painting a chevron pattern on your wall using contact paper. I love this! It stands out but doesn't take over the room. My hubby would also love the antlered mount. He'd prefer a real one, but I'm not putting Bambi's head in my living room.
