Happy Hump Day! Glenn and I spent the day moving sofas around and re-arranging the basement.. lol! All because of the new custom sofa slip cover I just had made to match the love seat cover I had done last year. Click here to view the blog I did on our loveseat showcasing the magnificent craftsmanship of my friend, Ellen. I loved how that one turned out so much, I decided to have the matching one done and do a switch-a-roo to bring them back together as a paired unit.
Hank immediately approved, and made himself at home.
Ellen had some extra material left over, and generously made me a pillow cover to stencil. It was super easy and took me 10 minutes, so I wanted to share it with you.
- Pillow cover – mine is Cotton Duck Cloth
- Stencil of choice – I used our Initial
- DecoArt Acrylic Paint – I used Dazzling Metallics Champagne Gold
- Cardboard to protect cover
I highly recommend DecoArt Acrylic Paint. They manufacture the highest quality acrylic paints on the market. I have used this paint for several craft projects, and I am always highly satisfied with it’s performance. I wanted to keep the pillow neutral, and thought Champagne Gold would accent it perfectly.
Make sure you protect your material from any paint bleeding by placing a piece of cardboard inside.
Just center your stencil, holding tight the edges to prevent the stencil moving or paint bleeding outside the edges.
Easy! Let it dry and stuff your pillow inside 😀 Instant new accessory!
This candle is amazing by the way. It’s Sage and Citrus from Antique Candle Works. I just adore these candles; they are hand poured and arrive in mason jars, and other vintage inspired containers. The wax is made from domestically grown soybeans and fine fragrance oils. The best part is Antique Candle Works is practically our neighbor, because they call Lafayette, Indiana home. Go over and say hello, and tell Brittany that Martha sent you 🙂 Right now she is offering 10% through the month of February, and if you sign up for her newsletter, you will be alerted of her next flash sale! You won’t want to miss it!
