homemade NAPKIN PILLOWS!

March 14, 2012

/////// photo's by the fashion gal ///////

one of my favorite things about moving into a new place is re-decorating! even if the re-decorating has to be done on a budget. i like making over my home like i would my wardrobe... by giving your older pieces a new life with little touches of color & texture. and when you have a {slightly} smaller budget that's when the creative wheels really have to start spinning! believe me, i think it would be fabulous to have a truck load of money to spend on a little home-make-over, but i do think it's pretty fun this way too! so here are my funky NAPKIN PILLOWS that instantly gave my couch the mini face-lift it was waiting for!

**these funky FABRIC NAPKINS are from West Elm. i wanted to make two fun pillows so i bought 4 napkins (on sale at West Elm) & 2 pillows from Ikea. my total cost was $13 per pillow... which added up to $26 for both pillows! and in the home furnishings world, that's a DEAL!

ok, let's get started!
... and when you get tired of these prints, just flip them around and you have two cool contrasting prints on the other side! not too shabby right?!


where do you like to shop for pillows?
