Painted Pillow

Yep.  I painted those stripes onto my newest throw pillow.  I had originally planned on using green fabric to Heat-n-Bond stripes to the pillow, but I figured that a little fabric medium, acrylic paint, and painters tape would be less time consuming.  Since I didn't do a very complicated pattern it only took about15 minutes to paint the stripes.

My new striped pillow is replacing this pillow:
I love the pattern, but ever since I decided to incorporate more green in my living room through the stenciled curtains and solid green pillows, it just seemed out of place.

The best part about this project is that it cost me ZERO dollars!  I used drapery fabric and paint supplies that I had left over.

Here's a shot of the new pillow with the stenciled curtains.

If you're curious about how I sewed the pillow,  here's my No Zipper, Envelope Pillow Cover Tutorial.

If you're curious about what I used to paint the stripes, here's my Stenciled Curtain Tutorial.  Just use tape to create stripes instead of a stencil!

I'll be linking up at:
