An easier way,

create a new layer
draw a rectangle with the marquis tool
fill it with a color
Ctrl-Shift-Alt drag a top corner, or bottom corner

: Someone else may have a better way to do this, but if I want sort of a
: form polygon (not necessarily symmetrical) I use the polygon lasso tool to
: draw a shape, and then fill it in with the paint bucket. If you want a
: symmetrical shape, you can try this:
: 1) create your basic rectangle in an image document (we'll call this image
: a) and fill it with your foreground color.
: 2) create a new image document (image b)
: 3) Make a rectangle and fill it with the background color you want to use
: image a.
: 4)Go to image>rotate canvas>arbitrary and rotate image b until it slants
: way you want one of the sides in image a to slant.
: 5) Copy this rectangle and paste it onto a new layer (we'll call it layer
: in image a.
: 6) Return to image b.
: 7) Go to image>rotate canvas>flip horizontal and flip image b
: 8) Copy this rectangle and paste it onto yet another new layer (we'll call
: it layer 3) in image a.
: 9) adjust layers 2 and 3 in image a until your rectangle looks the way you
: want it to look.
: Or better yet, use Illustrator (or any other vector illustration program)
: instead.
