I love all things chevron striped — from rugs to walls and everything in between. But I really, really love this chevron striped coat rack because it was a super simple DIY that can easily be reproduced!

Trisha, over at The Sweet Survival, put together this simple chevron striped coat rack using leftover paint and wood, a DIY stencil, and a few inexpensive hooks. If you happen to have one on hand, you could also revive an old coat rack like this. Either way, it's a surprisingly simple process.

First, paint the board a base color. Then, after the base paint has thoroughly dried, use the chevron stripe stencil to paint the contrast color using a stippling brush or a roller. Once the board has dried, insert the hooks.

Trisha made her own stencil by tracing the pattern from chevron striped fabric but you could buy a stencil if you want to skip that step. You could also achieve this look by using tape to create your stripes, but I daresay a stencil would be faster and easier.
