So I sanded it just a tad, then primed it, and gave it a white coat of flat spray paint. Then I googled painting chevron, and got zillions of results, all well thought out, detailed, precise directions. I don't do well with well thought out or precise. I got T-2 hours until the kiddos awake, so I just got a ruler, a pencil, and drew my own. No measuring whatsoever, so I don't recommend you copying my methods if you want everything exact, but that stuff doesn't phase me for some reason. I'm a weirdo, I know;)
Then I got my angled brush and a leftover paint sample I had (Valspar Lament Blue - GORGE!), and filled in the stripes.
So the frame I have it in is from the Dollar Tree! I chose it because, well, you can't beat a buck first of all, but it's also SO light, so it's not like I have to mount a super heavy frame, and pray it never falls. This one, all you have to do is use your glue gun and (I'm assuming - it's only been a day;) lol) it'll stay put. Just be sure to remove that piece that's on the back to hold the picture up on a tabletop, so it's nice and flush:
Silly me thought it might look better if I distressed it a bit, give it an ol' beachy feel perhaps...so I got out a piece of sandpaper and got to work.
So for about $5, I've filled a pretty big chunk of our bedroom wall. Even if I do think I botched it at the end with the whole distressing thing. Oh well, for that price, I can start over, right?!
