1. Divide the width of the wall by the number of zig-zags you want, then mark each of those spots straight across the wall (I did 10 cause that was easy to divide and it made 5 chevrons…odd numbers are always best)
2. Measure 6″ (or however wide you want your stripes) down from each peak following the zig-zag up and down and mark that spot
3. Take your tape and make a straight line from point to point, overlapping the tape at each intersection
TIP: Don’t measure the whole wall out and then tape. Measure each time after you tape because each one will be slightly off.
Ta da…it’s done. it took a LONG time but it was worth it! We love our chevron wall.
* You can also do this with contact paper on a painted wall, I wish I had seen this before I did it! But I have white walls so this was easier for me anyway. See it here.
Happy Taping! Email me pictures if anyone else does it, I would love to see!
