The breakfast bar that separates her dining room from her kitchen also serves as her workspace in her tiny abode. In order to cheer it up, she decided to paint some bold chevron stripes. She used the same chalkboard paint that covers the walls of her kitchen and some thick painter's tape to create this chevron pattern over a base of glossy white (she actually tried green first before deciding to paint it black. That's the great thing about paint; you can always change it up!). In this small area, the free form pattern (she didn't measure — the edges of the painter's tape were all the guidelines she needed.) is whimsical and lively. Follow her lead to brighten up a counter top, create interest in a small entry way, or pop a wall. For more details on how she did it, click here.
