Celebrity Painter Jim Connelly gives us the break down so you can achieve the trending look:
Chevron wall mural by Jim Connelly
Step 1: Make a Chevron template using cardboard making a three repeat image. An 18 inch in depth chevron was designed for the scale of our wall. Draw chevron template onto cardboard and cut out with a utility knife.


Step 2: Measure from ceiling the base line for first chevron, using a spirit level repeat four times.



Step 3: Tape off base lines to position chevron template on a straight line.


 Step 4: Measure center line on wall and trace the chevrons using a pencil working from left to right.

Step 5: Remove base line tape.

 Step 6: Tape off chevron image and use plastic spatula to smooth down the tape to good adhesion to wall.

Step 7: Using small roller, tray and paint apply thin coat of paint let dry and apply second coat.
Step 8: Remove blue tape.

Step 9: VOILA!
