So I looked through all of my craft supplies and saw that I had a blank canvas, plenty of paint, and some painters tape. Everything you need to make an awesome piece of DIY chevron wall art! I quickly scoured Pinterest for a tutorial I could use to make this awesome piece of art.
Then I very dangerously and optimistically thought, "This isn't going to be that hard at all." As I looked through the tutorial and looked at my supplies, I realized that I really didn't have the right size tape because my canvas was pretty small. But as I said earlier, I am very impatient and just had to have something chevron NOW!
So I very strategically started measuring and marking the middle of the canvas to decide where to lay the tape. This is where the disaster started. I spent the next 30 minutes taping and retaping the canvas in a very frustrated way.
I finally ended up with this very lovely very NOT chevron design. I gave up and decided that this is what it was going to look like and went ahead and started painting.
When it dried and I took the tape off I showed it to Mike to see his reaction. He very kindly told me that it looked like a road sign. I then very maturely stuck my tongue out at him. SO here you have it...my road sign chevron art.
This is one of the first pieces I have worked on for the gallery wall that is going to go in the craft room. I have decided to keep it and still put it in the gallery wall. When people ask it will be a very meaningful piece that signifies that things don't always go the way we think they will. However, we will all know that it is just because I am too impatient :)
