Stripey goodness

I can't think of a better way to start a blog than by writing about a project I've wanted to do forevah!
I know I'm late to the chevron show but I finally got here and that's what matters. Right?
Anywho, the biggest part of this project is measuring,
and measuring,
 and measuring....and then marking all of the points.
But then all I had to do was connect the dots with painter's tape and BAM!!
Chevrons in the making!!

I used this to give me some help with plotting my stripes....
Super helpful!
After the taping was done, things moved very fast.
Which is great because patience may not be my strongest quality.
I used plain white paint off the shelf (fancy right)
and I mixed it with black tint from my local OBI, which is like Germany's answer to Home Depot.
And this is the finished product...

Please excuse the crooked cell phone picture.
I'm new.
I love how it turned out!
Now I just want to chevron the heck out of everything!
