One morning I woke up to an Instagram DM from an old co-worker from years ago at a catering hall on Long Island, NY. She had asked me if I knew how to paint an accent wall or if I knew of anyone that could create the design she was looking for. I had replied back that I was willing to take on this project.
Here are the example images I was provided of a chevron pattern on a white wall:
I went to my friend’s house took photos to mock-up a couple designs in Adobe Photoshop. Here’s how the mock-ups came out for my friend to visualize her space with various designs I would hand paint.
Once I had an approval on the design she’d like, I bought the materials from my local Lowes, then practiced on a couple pieces of MDF I had laying around. I then got to masking the wall with 1″ tape to make sure the columns of arrows were straight and space out correctly, boyyy… that took a long time to layout. The next time I do something like this I might bring a second person to help get done faster. I used a triangle with a 45° angle to help me paint the lines of the chevron the same. This just about under 10′ wall took me about 9 hours to hand paint, my friend was very happy with the results!
If you’d like advice on how to paint a DIY Hand Painted Chevron or something similar as an accent wall or you’d like me to paint it for you if you live on Long Island, NY, shoot me an email ~ EvanJordanMunoz@gmail.com
Here was my progression throughout the day:
