Pillow Talk

See that pretty green pillow? it's new. There's another one on the other side of the couch. Guess how much they cost? they were full priced when I purchased them. Would you believe they were just $7.99? For both!

I've had my eye on green pillows lately, wanting to emulate this family room mood board in our living room (since it's lively, contemporary, and we have several of the pieces already).

Unfortunately, I've been practically broke for that last couple of weeks, due to our current bathroom renovation (which is being finished tonight!). What's a girl to do?
Well, while perusing Target the other day, I stumbled upon a beautiful green tablecloth, and decided I must add it to my Fall decor. Loving the color, the weight of the fabric, and the machine-wash-ability, I began to scheme and ponder the versatility of tablecloths and cloth napkins. They are, after all, just fabric. So I grabbed a package of 4 20"x20" green fabric napkins for $7.99. I sewed my own pillow covers with those napkins, covered 2 pillows I already owned, and voila! new, inexpensive -but nice- pillows!

  1. That is so great! I'll have to remember's always so great seeing how wives redo/makedo with what they have. It helps to inspire my (lack of) creativity. :-)
