I was looking for inspiration for painting my office/guest room which has sloped ceilings. I found a lot of varying info on whether I should paint the slops the wall colour or ceiling colour and I couldn't find many images of people who'd tried to paint patterns. So I thought I would share my project.
Step 1: Chevron on Sloped Ceiling Walls
These guidelines will apply to any sort of wall. I just couldn't find any examples on a sloped ceiling when I was looking for painting inspiration and wanted to share how my project turned out.
While the chevron is pretty well gridded and square, because of the sloped ceiling, it looks a little twisted from different angles. I don't mind this look but it's something to consider about how it will work for you.
Step 2: Draw Your Grid
Step 3: Tape Your Lines
Step 4: To Avoid Your New Colour From Bleeding Under the Tape, Use a Brush and Run Your Main Wall Colour Along Your Tape Lines
I believe this trick really made a difference in my lines and I wish I had learnt it earlier for previous painting projects.
Thanks to Greyson and Sharrah of Love Your Life for sharing this tip in their Chevron tutorial.
