Going through images for last week’s post on “the zig zag” I found these great DIY chevron projects in my stash. Oh, to be so creative. These DIY’ers did a great job personalizing their projects to work in their spaces and to fit their skill sets.

The key to a good looking chevron is the tape, and lots of it. “The guys” at the Hirshfield’s Contractor Service Center recommend FrogTape for the sharpest lines. Always work out the kinks on a test area beforehand and not on the real deal.

The links below have directions for each project shown above. Maybe one of these projects will inspire a DIY project in you.

      I used that link in the blog posting last week and I love the last image – it looks like the floor is undulating.

      Have you seen any herringbone or chevron floors in town?
