Take something you really love: a letter, envelope, photograph, a ticket stub. anything - to a printing place like Kinkos and have them blow it up for you to hang as art. An old recipe from Grandma would be great for the kitchen! love this envelope idea
PHOTO DISPLAY for large wall surfaces in your home
maybe do this for some of the table number frames? Pedestal Photo Frames - Spray paint frames and candlesticks the same color. Glue the frame to candlestick and let dry overnight. Insert photo and display.
A piece of plywood painted with the chevron(Or any pattern)--its a big statement that's cheap and its not an entire wall that you have to commit to. Possibly have this done on accent walls on smaller corner walls by entrance and laundry room.
