DIY Weathered Wood Chevron Art

Tribal pattern and other graphic elements have been all the rage and this gorgeous DIY will fit right into the trend! My long time friend, Shannon, from AKA Design added this graphic element to her living room wall and if you have not seen Shannon's home, you are missing out! I think it's the perfect rustic, weathered touch. Here's how you can make your own:



Shannon applied a heavy coat of stain to the raw wood chevrons. You can use whatever type of brush you'd like, but brushes that hold a lot of liquid work best. Do not wipe the stain off,  just let it dry and do the work for you. 

If you're interested in making your own chevron wall art, Shannon has a template you can grab from her blog. It will help you create the angle and shape perfectly.

Once dry, they looked so beautiful against the griege wall, don't you think? Red cedar will have these "highs and lows" as the industry calls them- meaning the wood will range from gray to tan. The tam portion is the tree's sapwood and the gray is where the tree was tannin-rich.

I was about to make myself some of these darling chevrons right when we found out we were moving. There's always room in our next place, though, right? At least I can look at how pretty they are on Shannon's wall. Please stop by and show her some love, she is an amazing blogger and she has a bunch of resources of you're looking to grow your own blog.
