I have one more project that I finished that I want to share with you. This one falls into the category of “half done for no good reason, because it took so little time to finish up”.
I wanted some more modern looking (less traditional-looking) pillows to go in our living room. I had some fabric that I had purchased waaaay back a long time ago, when I was going to re-cover my dining room chairs.
Then we downsized (not this last move, but the move before) and sold that dining set.
But I still really liked this fabric.
And I decided that it would be lovely on a couple of pillows.
So I made one. It looked great.
I think it has been about six months since I made that first pillow. Perhaps longer.
Was I waiting to purchase some needed trim? Perhaps I didn’t have a pillow form to use? Maybe I ran out of thread?
No. Nope. Hardly.
I really have no good reason as to why I did half of this project, and then let it sit.
But no more. I got motivated and whipped out that pillow in practically no time flat.
Want to see it? (Of course you do.)
But first…..I am going to take you through the evolution of the space.
First, we had this area, with two chairs, and a whole lot of boxes of books.
(And two sad little brownish pillows, which were nice in their time, but needed some revamping.)
The first step was getting appropriate shelving for the books.
We found some that fit perfectly in the space, and were just the style we were hoping for.
(“Wow. That’s a lot of shelf space. How in the world will you ever fill it?”
Oh, dear friend. Do you even know me?)
Wait— first let me show you the pillow. Pillow #2, that is.
Aww. So cute–little orange lumbar pillow with tan piping!
And here’s the whole scene, complete with books, a sweet floor lamp, and yes, not just one modern orange pillow, but two.
Isn’t this a sweet little place to read?
(And did you notice–no empty shelves. :))
Future changes include a more modern patterned rug, and possibly slipcovering the current sofa.
All in good time.
I just hope it doesn’t take as long as that little pillow did. :)
