Little Boy Chevron

Chevron, chevron, chevron!  This is a trend that can be found everywhere from walls, stairs, clothes, accessories - the list goes on.

It's taken me a few months to get up the courage to try it my hand at this simple yet powerful decorative statement {a little paranoid...Yes, yes I am!  LOL} but I have to say that I'm very pleased with my take on this.

I bought this unfinished wood stool to give as a baby shower gift for a co-worker.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to complete it before the shower {she ended up with some great baby clothes} but I was determined to finish it and finally I have.

After a coat of primer and  a coat of Krylon White Gloss spray paint, I was ready to measure the squares necessary to create my chevron stripes.  I used a light blue chalk to mark off the area.

Grabbed my painters tape to create the stripes.

I used Krylon Blue Bonnet spray paint to cover the top.  I learned a tip online that says to remove the painters tape after a couple minutes so as to keep the paint from running {I did this but still needed to do a few touch-ups}

And added a little color to the legs.

As much as I liked this as it was, I wanted to add something else to it so I used vinyl to put a favorite 'little boy' saying on it.

What are little boys made of?

Smashing...simply smashing!  I love everything about about this project and I am so happy with how well it turned out {giving self a super-duper high five}.

What's something that you've been wanting to try?  Go ahead and give it a go...you might just be surprised!

Happy Go Lucky
