I made this "Chevron" patterned runner for my dining room table this afternoon! Got the orange fabric at the local thrift store, bought a sample of ultra white paint for $2.99 and a thin angled brush to paint on the stripes. I printed out a chevron pattern and then traced it onto cardboard to make it more durable! Used a fabric pen, traced the pattern and then went over it with the paint! I was going to paint the insides of the stripes but I kind of liked it like this?! I might change that later on, but you can mess up and it looks decent. Love the orange and white!
