I am totally into the chevron rage. I think it is so fun. So, I proposed the idea to Brad on doing a chevron wall! I thought it would give our room a little lift. I feel like it is still elegant, but now has a little kick to it. It didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would. If it weren't for the kids trying to "help," Brad could have knocked out the whole thing in probably 6 hours. We took a break and finished it the next day. Brad did all of the taping off, and then we did the painting together. There was alot of math and taping involved, and my next post, I will have Brad post the instructions exactly how to do it. I orignally was going to do the chevron stripes 2 colors lighter than the brown with a different finish, but my sister in law encouraged me to go with a cool color since the brown is warm. I'm so glad I took her advice. The beauty of it is we didn't have to spend any money. I already had left over paint from our cream hallway color. I used that, AND it matches my curtains.
I had the blue shams and comforters sitting in storage in the garage. I bought these when Brad and I were first married, and I thought the blue added a little color to the room. I took the pillows from the living room because I already have tons of throw pillows in there.
We rearranged our daughter's room and moved her rocker to our son's room. Then we took his since it was a neutral color and moved it to our room. Sure, a rocker isn't my first choice for that space, but it will do for now. It looks a little more grown up with the pillows on it. My dream chairs for that space are these. And the color of the chairs is seaglass, which are my favorite! It's a sign. :)
