Dollar store pillow covers

Friday, March 4, 2011

It's been weeks and weeks since I've been to one of my favorite stores- the dollar store! So today seemed like the perfect day to go! I had just seen a blog post of someone turning a placemat into a pillow and of course I wanted to try. The placemats I found weren't very comfy feeling or soft. But I did find some cushion covers! So I picked out two matching colors to redo the ugly pillows that came with our couch. I just used the stuffing inside the old pillows. The covers on them were hideously stained and nasty. 

So here I am trying to make our home life prettier..

New pillow covers..

 Old pillows and stuffing... 

Ripping apart old stuffing into pieces... 

Stuffed new cover with old stuffing! 

It might not all match perfectly {and nothing really does in our apartment!}, but I think our little couch looks more comfy, clean and inviting.

It's so nice to be rid of those old stained up pillows! 

Oh, here's the left over mess... 

... and into the T.R.A.S.H it goes!

I like them, your look is ecclectic it all works. Who wants everything completely matching thats boring. Your room has personality
