My daughter, Michelle, redecorated their bedroom recently
and I offered to paint a chevron pattern on a couple of canvasses that she had.
I found a template which was available for free at this link.
Thank you, Billie Monster!
I used the template as a guide only because my chevron strips were different in widths.
It's not an easy task to mark out a precise pattern
on canvasses that aren't perfectly squared but,
after some trial and error, I managed to fit it okay.
I used blue low-tack artists' tape to mark out the chevron shapes
for each colour application.
Then I had to lighten the yellow a little so
I just free-handed the last couple of coats with a flat brush
because I couldn't be bothered putting the tape back on again.
The yellow was the last colour applied.
They look pretty good on their bedroom wall if I do say so myself.
Does my daughter have a talent for interior design or what?!!
I just LOVE their new bedroom look!
No, I didn't paint the zebra canvas.
It was a canvas photo print from Kmart.
I very much enjoyed splashing acrylic paint around again.
I didn't realise how much I had missed it.
