Chevron Addicts Anonymous

While working on a few things around here, it’s come to my attention that I may have a problem.  Mainly with chevron.  Specifically, teal and white chevron.  Let’s take a look:

Way back at the start of all this, I made a Z Gallerie inspired frame that was, you guessed it, teal and white chevron.

Chevron Frame inspired by Z Gallerie from BAndBBuildALifeNow, I could easily excuse this one because I made it bright and cheery like that to try to de-dull my gray cubicle at work.  (Boo for losing a walled, doored office and getting a cubicle.)

But then I found a great deal on fabric and decided to make back tab drapes for our apartment in Pittsburgh.  (Well, it was Bill’s at the time as I hadn’t fully moved yet.)

Back Tab Curtains Tutorial @ BandBBuildALife.comOk, not bad.  They came out really fabulously, and I had enough fabric leftover to cover a few down-filled ikea pillow forms with the same fabric.

chevron envelope pillow @ BandBBuildALife.comOk, justifiable.  Why wouldn’t you make pillows with leftover fabric so they match?  Right?

decorative cork board conceals intercom @ BandBBuildALife.com…..so we still have fabric leftover.  And there was this ugly, off centered intercom that drove me nuts.  So Bill & I created this handy way of dressing things up.  With more chevron!

chevron ornament @ BandBBuildALife.comYes.  That is a chevron and glitter ornament.  To my credit, it’s the teal blue but then silver glitter, not white.  So there’s some deviation there, right?

fridge bling @ BandBBuildALife.comWait!  That’s not even blue!  Mwahaha finally I’ve used chevron without my signature color!  …but it’s still chevron.  Oh well.  It still is a useful information station on the fridge.

knock off decor target candle stand @ BandBBuildALife.comCan’t blame me for this one.  Nope.   This one’s all Z Gallerie’s fault for having a fantastic clearance sale and allowing me to find this candle.  I mean, it called to me!  And then inspired me to create this candle stand inspired by a product at Target.

Ok.  Denial is the first sign that something’s a problem, right?  Then yeah, I’m in trouble.  Big trouble!

To my credit, I’ve kept it to smaller things (excluding the statement making drapes) and balance things out with things like our over-sized charcoal couch.  You have to add some fun to a room with a big charcoal couch otherwise it starts to get dark and dreary.

But I can’t yet promise I’ll cease my chevron ways.  ….and yes, that’s a hint to some upcoming projects!

Enjoy your weekend!
