Pottery Barn DIY pillows



I get the Pottery Barn catalog just about every month I think! I’m not complaining…I find myself copying their decor in every room. I just love it! So this past month I was really loving their new pillows.  I put the red away since it’s summer and wanted to put some lighter pillows on my dark couches…so I attempted to copy their pillows!  I thought these crocheted ones would look great on leather….


pillows And so here is my version….I recycled some old sweaters into pillows…this one is a slipcover so I can wash when dirty…I added these chunky buttons too!


This one looks more like the pottery barn crocheted pillows…also made from an old sweater I recycled…I tend to save clothes we don’t wear if I really like the fabric…I know I will find a use for it later!


I loved their display here…..And since we LOVE dominos and scrabble I had to copy!! Little kids love putting them in the jar for fun too! Excuse the flash…


And here is my version…I added numbers to the jars :) 


Refreshed my TV Armoire for spring/summer!050


I think my sharpie is just as addicting as the chalk!! :)

 053My newest treasure? I found this lovely PB basket on the side of the road…yes I did too!!! Yay me! :)


My living area….I’m working on a new project which entails a French white buffet to lighten things up a little! I think I will use it as a sofa table. Oh and I’m headed to Ikea very soon in Ottawa Canada to pick up the white EKTORP army chair! :) :) :)


Enjoying my summer break….:)

Wow! just found your site through "The Shabby Nest".
I love your ideas!
I am totally copying your plate saying!!! I don't have a CRICUT and have seen so many wonderful Bible verses and sayings and have been wondering HOW I could do this. Thanks so much for a inexpensive, but lovely way to go about it;)

In previous years, mostly during the state championhip runs of the 90s, dexter missouri activities was a pass-first team, but they
know how to unpack boxes now. I would've thought the Gone with the Wind record would have been nice to see this earlier, as well as been informed of the ongoing work the process began last November.
