Step 1

Paint the wall overall with the color of your choice (we used Valspar First Kiss). Let dry overnight.

Step 2

Starting at the baseboard, use a pencil to mark every 10 inches along the width of your wall.

Step 3

Measure 6 inches vertically from each of those points, and mark with a pencil. Repeat the pencil marks until you get to the ceiling.

Step 4

Use painter's tape to connect the dots from alternating rows to create peaks and valleys. (Note: Use a crafts knife to trim the tape and get a perfect point.)

Step 5

Paint between the painter's tape with the color(s) of your choice (see list for paint colors used in this project). Let dry, then peel the tape to reveal the chevrons.
