One of the ways I like to change up the look of a room for pennies, besides paint, is throw pillows. I usually always sew my own pillow covers because it’s much cheaper that way. Even if you find some fabric that is a little on the pricey side per yard, you can always just buy a half a yard to cut the price. And really, that is all you need anyway. I like to use plain canvas for the backs of my pillows and the pretty fabric for the front. That may seem like an obvious thing to do but actually,
I didn’t figure that out till this past year. 🙂
I am so happy with them.
By far, the question I am asked the most via email is where did we buy our bamboo shades in our kitchen and dining area. Unfortunately, I don’t think they are available any longer. We bought them about 6 years ago and recently tried to find another set without any luck.
But I like these just as much.
I was so excited to come across this pillow cover at Restoration Hardware ON CLEARANCE a few months ago. It’s a tiny pillow but who cares. I loved it and it wasn’t a budget buster.
It was almost $16 per yard but I just bought a half a yard, cutting the price in half.
I love that fabric.com will allow you to buy a half instead of a whole.
So, that’s it for now. Stay tuned for more pillow changes coming up….
Have a great Monday!
