For the love of Chevron

I don't fall for pattern's often but for some reason I have been really liking the chevron pattern. (who hasn't lately?) It is a little Charlie Brown just without the black and yellow! Everything from rugs, phone cases to clothes...chevron is everywhere. 

The rug above is the inspiration for my next project. I've seen several DIY tutorials on painting your own design onto solid rugs like this IKEA rug...

With some painters tape, paint and a foam brush the possibilities are endless. This rug is on my list to get next time I visit IKEA. 

As you may have noticed I have been a bit MIA this past year. Not for lack of discovering new and creative things to do but enjoying these new discoveries and not feeling the need to record them all.
I currently see myself like the floats above and will post something here and there when the mood hits.
Enjoy the discoveries!

  1. Chevron is BACK!!! Reminds me of some beautiful afghans I saw in the '70s. Isn't it amazing how things come back around. Enjoy! The rug sounds like a GREAT idea. Welcome back!
