Fancy Pillow

So I purchased this AMAZING new couch that I referred to in this post. And I finally got it upstairs (thanks Pop and Steve!) and am ready to accessorize! I've been looking for ideas for new couch pillows and I found this post on my new favorite blog: Oh So Crafty.

So I immediately rounded up 4 old shirts that would've ended up at goodwill sooner than later....
And I up-cycled them to make an amazing pillow!!!!
It turned out a little more stripey than I envisioned (gotta love my lack of ability to visualize)...but overall I LOVE IT! This was most definitely the funnest project I've done in a LONG time!

Are you thinking "Weird color scheme, Shannon, are you color blind?" Well here's how it fits in the room....and I'm painting a wall the Cool Caribbean color so stay tuned for that.....

But for now....what do you think of my new look?
The remotes are a nice touch....but if I give them the chop I also have to cut out the vintage resin grapes and my Granny's craft project from the 50s...so they got to stay in the photo. :)

Happy Holidays!!

Shannon, I really, really love your new couch. And your pillow is so cool! I'm so impressed you made it. And with t-shirts?? Wow. Very cool. Can't wait to see the rest of your place. :) And I hope you're doing great! I have been really bad about keeping in touch. I'm sorry! :(

Wow! Love the couch, love the cushions, love the fact that you can sew (something I would like to learn one of these days) and LOVE the Christmas tree as well! It is going to look great with the painted walls!
