DIY: How to paint a Chevron Stripe

Hello Friends, it’s Amanda, from mommy is coocoo. Today I am going to share a popular painting tutorial with you.
I tried to paint a chevron stripe when I made a pallet wood sign  for a friend. To say it was challenging would be an understatement!  I looked at several tutorials online that were difficult to understand. (My coocoo mind can take about three directions then I start to skim.)  I thought all those people that said, “easy and simple” when they were talking about how to paint a chevron stripe were liars (or geniuses).
I still don’t think the process for painting a chevron stripe is easy or simple (there are more than three steps) but I believe  I’ve created a simple tutorial.  This tutorial is so Easy to Understand my five year old sat beside me and drew the stripes.
