Pillow Talk

Right now, I am attempting a redo on our bedroom.





This seems to be a challenge, because of us trying to sell our home.


What is worth putting into the room?



Light fixtures, mounting stuff to the walls just does not seem cost effective at this time.



I'm itching to start doing something to our room.



So, I have decided to decorate with items I can take with us.






Pillows add so much to an ordinary bed.


My husband is not a huge fan. Pillows = more work.




This is one of my favorites. A monogrammed H with buttons.






Dark blue, light tan, and off white fabric rosette flowers adorn this pillow.




Every bed needs a burlap pillow. I loved the shape of this one.






An Ikea towel, is what I used for this stripped pillow.




Yes, I said a towel. I love finding unusual stuff to use for a project.





Last night around 5, My sister and I  took a 2 hour trip to Ikea.


We dodged the fog, and pouring rain, to go.



How peaceful it was, to be almost the only people there.




I could actually think.





My sister did inform me that people are holding dinner parties at Ikea.



HOW fun, I wish I leaved closer.





Now I just need a few fluffy white pillows and I am good to go.



I cant wait to show you my garage door headboard.




There are just a couple more details to work out. Until my reveal.

Your pillows look great! We're re-doing our room too. Just saw some pillows in a catolog that said "Mr." and "Mrs." Think I'm gonna make some too :)

Your pillows are darling! My husband has the same sentiments about decorative pillows. (Most do!) The Ikea towel pillow was very clever. Sometimes it's SO much cheaper to find a cool fabric that way, right?

Thank you for sharing with air your laundry Friday!

Hugs,
Jami
