This is one of my early posts when I started blogging in April. It's not an oldie, but it's a goodie! Family duties have sabotaged the blog post I'd planned for this week, so I'm sharing this post again. Thanks for visiting!
Look, new pillows for my bedroom! And they only took a bit of thinking and best of all they were almost (less than $1 each ) free! (I'm still pretty new to the whole blogging thing so I'm working on it with these pillow posts. Bear with me, I plan to make things better but as they say, practice practice practice. And maybe you'll get an idea for your own projects.)
So my total cost on this project was minimal but let's break it down...
brown and white fabric @ $1 a yard less than $1
white embroidered black remnant $1 less than $1
(I still have enough of each fabric to make a smaller pillow)
Craft paint on hand zero extra cost
old bed pillows stuffed into new bed pillows zero
WalMart flat single sheet for $4 less than $1.00
(I made 6 full size pillow cases with the rest of the sheet)
So total cost was less than $4 which brings each pillow to less than $1 each. Even the REAL budget condescended enough to give the pillow budget a nod of approval. And now since I have the bed pillows I wanted, I can get on with the fun part of redecorating our master bedroom with a new color scheme....shopping for accessories at thrift stores and yard sales!!
