DIY Ikat Chevron Wall

Thursday, 1 March 2012

Here is my favorite DIY of the moment. This gorgeous wall has been realised by the team behind Gorgeous Shiny Things. One of my favorite DIY blogs ! She made it for her entry hallway, and the colors are just wonderful ! Perfect for a house by the sea! 
What is the trick then ? 

After searching for us, I got this wonderful tutorial on Make them wonder !

All you need is something to paint (canvas, wall or furniture piece), a cheap-o foam brush and some paint !

 Paint the inside of the chevron solid. 
While it's still wet, hold the brush straight up and down then bring it just outside the edge of the painted area. 

Et voilĂ  ! A great DIY project for the weekend ! 


  1. WOW! Awesome idea, although it looks like a lot of work! It looks great, though, and who doesn't love zigzags + ikat?!?!

  2. Worth the work ! ;) Thanks for passing by !
