So those 2 pillows were the inspiration for the birds on the bottom of the pavers in my last post.
Below, the lamp is another HL find, but it was silver with a white shade. I used turquoise acrylic paint and the new Krylon mirror paint and simply love how it turned out!
Here's a close-up of the lamp - it is just perfect! Oh, and I just spray painted the shade with some tan paint. Who knew it would turn out looking so much like burlap?
I used my cricut again to cut out these designs, then traced around them on fabric and filled them in. Used a fabric marker to start, but a sharpie works just fine!
I have 2 very long sofas in my tiny living room. So for the other sofa, I bought more of the big pillows with words on them and then added ribbon and flowers to cover the words. Easy to sew it on - these pillows had zippers in the covers, so easy to remove.
The tiny printed pillow was 80% off at HL and the lamp shade was half off. So a whole new look for not much of anything!
The pillow in front is a plain cover where I added ribbon and flowers. Some of those flowers were from the jewelry and hair embellishment departments. The pillow in the back - that's a piece of printed burlap from the fabric department. The Cali-lillies were 99 cents at the thrift store and they are down in a group of lighted pussy willow stems. 99 cents!!! All I had to do was iron and re-shape them. One of my favorite flowers!
and mom painted cali-lillies for me years ago - I am so blessed to have a home full of her wonderful art!
Now, decorating my home really isn't an excuse for not blogging.......but just wait! I love using my cricut, hot glue gun and other craft tools to create a nest I love coming home to!
