My Chevron Wall

I've been wanting to re-paint my kitchen (for like the 15th time, not really but we have painted it several times) for some time now. I haven't been able to come up with a color I thought I'd just love, that wouldn't make me want to do it again in a few years like before. I've seen people on blogs and Pinterest do Chevron walls and I liked them. All of a sudden a few weeks ago it hit me that I should try a chevron wall as an accent wall in my kitchen. I figured what did I have to lose (since I talked about re-painting the whole thing anyway) and if it turned out good then we wouldn't have to re-paint. I ran the idea by Ben, he didn't understand exactly I don't think but said ok. I figured up the dimensions for it and then finally got time this weekend to talk him in to trying it. I'm not a painter, or lets say I prefer not painting walls if I don't have too. But Ben doesn't mind at all. I think he actually likes it and has painted our whole house on the inside. So I can only take credit for the dimensions and helping him do the chalk grid and that was it. Once we finished the chalk he said we looked like smurfs! I couldn't help but laugh. Here is a before picture.

Here is Ben working on it.

When he finished before we put everything back he said it reminded him of Whataburger and I had to laugh again!

The after picture! Let me just say it looks AWESOME. It lightened up that little nook so much and just added so much character. Also for the record once it was all put back he decided it didn't look like Whataburger as much as before and he really liked it!

Love it -- I'm obsessed with chevron - Graham's whole nursery is chevron. :)
