  • Ruler
  • Sharpie, Pencil and Paint brushes

  To begin you’re going to want to paint your frame white. If you’d like the grain of the wood to show just use a white wash or white stain . To make a ‘white wash’ all you need to do is dilute white paint with equal parts water.  You can also try mixing white paint with antiquing medium or glaze. Make sure you let the frame dry completely.

  The next part can be a little tricky. There are a few things to remember when creating this particular chevron pattern.  This geometric triangle design is based on squares and 45* angles. Not all chevron patterns use these angles so you might want to follow step by step.
  (1.)To start the design, use a pencil to draw three horizontal lines. The 5x7 inside and design of the frame allows you to center and evenly space the lines. Draw one through the middle and two inline with the inside of the frame. (2.)Next repeat the process drawing lines vertically. Two lines will be inline with the sides of the inside of the frame and two more between.  You should now have a ‘checkerboard’ look of pencil lines. (4.) Starting with the top left corner draw a line diagonally the same way seen in the diagram.
(5.) Next keep drawing lines in a zig-zag pattern from left to right. (7.) Keep going down and around the frame, clockwise.
Your pencil lines should look like the photo below. If you don’t think your design looks right, just erase, erase, erase and start over.
Now look at the diagrams below. You want to begin in the top left triangle. Follow the pillow’s color pattern and use my collage below as a guide. Purple and orange share a vertical line. Blue and green share a vertical line.
After all of the appropriate triangles are colored in, use a black sharpie to emphasize the pencil lines. I used a classic black sharpie but I’m sure a sharpie paint marker would work great too.

I think you’re really going to be surprised how nice the end result is.
 Try adjusting the saturation or tint of the colors to match your décor.
