The last big project for my closet room was some artwork for the blank wall above my shoe shelves. I had a vision of what I wanted to do and even though it ended up being a lot harder than I’d planned, I couldn’t be happier with the results. The inspiration all began when I found this Diamond Dust at the craft store a few weeks back. Strangely enough, it was in the floral arrangement aisle. It is the perfect “gilver” (gold/silver mix) and the particles are an irregular shape…almost like tiny shattered pieces of mirror.
1 can spray adhesive
1.5″ roll painters tape
Blank canvas (mine was 20″ x 24″)
LOTS of glitter (it took 10 of the pouches seen above)
1 can glitter sealant spray

I. LOVE. THIS! Does the sealant keep the glitter from falling off? That much glitter scares me. I feel like it could fall off for years!

LOVE this! so simple to make and looks so amazing in the wardrobe 🙂
That looks gorgeous! And it was really simple! Love the glamour : )
That. Is. FABULOUS. I have been meaning to do a chevron painting as well, but hadn't considered throwing some glitter into the mix. I'm totally swiping your idea. LOOOVE.
Your creation looks stunning! And perfect for your closet room!

This looks so good! I haven't really gotten into DIYs yet, but this looks so fantastic I might have to try!
GORGEOUS!! What a smart, relatively easy thing to do. Two of them together would be really cool. Perhaps one silver one gold? Or one orange and one blue (because I'm a gator!)? 🙂
OMG…I love chevrons…and I love glitter…so this couldn't be anymore perfect…I'd love to recreate this, but I guess I need to figure out where I would put it first…but this is the coolest thing I've seen in awhile!
Clara Turbay says

Real Girl Glam says
Love this DIY and that Diamond Dust is awesome! THink I will be needing it immediately!
Looks amazing! I'm totally addicted to chevron but always am intimidated by DIY projects with it because of all that measuring – your cardboard template solution was very smart!
great idea, looks stylish!
I freakin' LOVELOVELOVE this. I need to do this when I get my own place. Chevron is such a interesting design, too. It immediately pops. Great job.
Style Searchin says
I'm obsessed with chevron- combine with glitter and I'm sold! Such a perfect piece for a girly closet…love it!
Where did you buy the diamond dust/about how much was it? And is it like normal glitter or more fine?
Hi there, I found it at JoAnn's Craft Store in the floral arrangement section. It is actually chunkier than regular glitter and the pieces are irregularly cut (kind-of jagged) instead of round, like glitter. Hope that helps!
I looked at JoAnns online & they only had Diamond Dust in a jar & it only cam in white??
Hello Ky – I think that must be different than what I bought because this is definitely a gold/silver color!
Ginny Brown says
What brand of sealant did you use and where did you get it? Thank you!
This is a fabulous idea!!! I will definitely be making a few of these for my house. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Fabrice Galler says
Wow, this looks amazing and it really is very simple. Love this!
It looks so cute! Thank you for sharing!!!
Super cute! Love it.
Jody Wood says
Do you have any measurements for the Chevron Cut out? 😉
The chevron stripes were the same width as the painter’s tape. The cutout we used was based on the size of the canvas and how far away from the edge we wanted the chevron pattern to start – does that make sense?
Jody Wood says
Yes! Thank you so much. 😉

Kristen @ SYIAP says
where is your necklace holder from? or, what is it?
I found it on Amazong & spray-painted it white. I actually ended up buying another one so I could spread out my jewelry a little more. Here’s the link:
Would you happen to have any measurements for the cheveron cut out? 🙂
I’m so sorry – I don’t still have the cardboard we cut out to create it, but the chevron lines are 4 inches wide if that helps!
