We’ve been in our house over a year and I have yet to put anything above our couch. I finally got serious this weekend and did it! I used an old door that was in the basement. We’ve used this thing twice. Once as a desk top and another time for a table top. It was the perfect width for above our couch.
It was already painted white from its last use. The blue was paint we had leftover from another project. I used this chevron template from Sunset’s website.
I tried their directions without much success. So I spent a long, long time tracing the pattern, then taping it off.
Just a couple of coats of the blue paint and viola. I’ve really been loving the chevron patterns I’ve been seeing around. It really adds a pop of color, fills that blank space and best of all it was free!
