Hi everyone! Claire here, with a project that I’m thrilled to say, has been one of my easiest yet. Two weeks ago I confessed to you all my need for a quick home pick-me-up to distract me from the other looming projects I’ve been putting off. I was so inspired by all the incredible designs I discovered, and after much sketching and deliberating, I decided to take pieces of each one I’d found to create my own original door design… and if this photo is any indication, it’s safe to say the whole household is pleased with the outcome! Interested in making your own? We’ve got the easy instructions just after the jump.

  • door (duh!)
  • paint (I chose glossy for added interest)
  • tape measure
  • pencil
  • blue painters tape
  • straight edge
  1. Tape off and paint door edges first. I used a neon acrylic paint for this part, it took about 4 coats.
  2. Measure door’s height and width and draw out a smaller version to scale out the pattern properly. I did this in order to calculate an even amount of chevrons.
  3. Mark the center of your door with a pencil, and use ruler to space and mark the point of each chevron. For my pattern, I marked every 13 inches.
  4. Using a straight edge, draw each angled line.
  5. Repeat steps 4 & 5 on the other side of the door.
  6. Tape along each line, and paint. I painted 3 coats to ensure evenness.
  7. Once dry, remove tape and rehang!
