Like my li'l Def Leppard influenced title? They're a little before my time, but mmmm, I love me some Joe Elliot. Since I'm not gonna go on about Def Leppard (and how much I LOVED their Crossroads with Taylor Swift!), let me show you my new addition to my living room!
After making my first pillows/pillow covers for the slipper chairs, I realized that throw pillows really DO add something to a room! Who'd have known that every. single. designer. was right?
I'd pointed out that I was using pillows from my window seat in my living room, but that was only to test if it would be worth the effort of having throw pillows. I totally underestimated my family, and figured that the pillows would be abused, thrown on the floor, and just left messy! They all did a great job keeping the pillows on the sofa (not necessarily neatly, but they weren't all over the living room!). So I figured it was time to give it a "go" and make some pillow covers!
The fabric that I'd used is from the Waverly Modern Essentials collection. The left one is called Pom Pon Play in Spa, and the right one is Button Blooms in Spa. I first fell in love with the Pom Pon fabric when I saw it used here as chair upholstery fabric (seriously, look at the comments!), but it's always been sold out online! Finally, it was in stock AND on sale!
I bought both at JoAnn's, when all Waverly fabric was 50% off, and they had an additional 15% off your entire purchase coupon. Altogether, I got 1 1/4 yards of fabric for $14. I haven't seen a pre-made cover that I like even CLOSE to $14, let alone two! And I'm especially loving how the colors play with everything in the room!
Ooh! And my coffee table looks messy because I've been "testing" again! This time, it's to see if baby Goats can leave stuff alone! I have a few photo books that I've gotten for free from Shutterfly, and I really want them out so that people can see 'em when they come over, but I wanted to make sure they'd be safe. So I put a couple out that weren't too sentimental, and, surprisingly AGAIN, things were left mostly alone!
She loves looking at all of the pictures, but she'll bring the books to me so that I can flip through them! YAY! I just need a tray to put them in, so that it looks a bit more organized! Any suggestions on that?
