The Best Of: DIY Chevron Projects

Sources Clockwise from Left: here, here, here, here and here

Our home search is ramping up, and I’ve let myself go a little wild dreaming up DIY home projects and decor. The trend I’ve been loving the most recently is definitely chevron. I don’t know what it is – but it makes me really happy.

Here are a few of my very favorite chevron projects from around the web. I don’t know if I’ll get to actually make all of them. I’m not sure how much chevron one house can hold before it’s deemed obnoxious, but I bet I’ll be testing out those boundaries.

First up is this chevron rug from Hayley Anderson Photography . Yes, I am biased because the DIYer used a pug in her photos. Looks simple enough. Plain rug, can of paint, and painters tape. I think this would look really cute under a dining room or kitchen table.

Next up is this great lampshade from Pomp and Circumstance. Again, all you need is your basic lampshade, paint and some painters tape. I think that this chevron lampshade paired with this DIY Mirrored Lamp would be the things dreams are made of.

Okay, I have no idea what I’d do with this dresser from home.made. I just know it makes me furiously happy to look at.

I’ve seen a few DIY Chevron curtain tutorials that used paint, but I was most intrigued by this one by Altar’d Designs since it used all fabric. It’s also no-sew.

Last up is this pillow tutorial from MADE. A chevron pillow is pretty self-explanatory if you can find chevron fabric, but if not, here is a handy tutorial for turning stripes into chevron. So clever! Even if you can find the fabric, this technique adds an extra layer of texture that I like.

What do you think of the chevron trend? Love it or hate it? And, how much can I get away with in one household??
