Amazing what some color can do!

After having burgundy and red as the accent color in our living room, I learned from Mike that the space is too dark. With the 'Wheat Bread" Behr paint on the walls and white trim, original wood floors and black and dark brown furniture, we agreed it was time to add some color into the space to brighten it up.

The cheapest way to splash in some color was to cover the original red pillows with handmade pillow colors that will begin to introduce our new color palette of sun yellow and teal.

I had to just purchase fabric as I used all the existing pillows. There is a simple way to sew the pillows without needing zippers, button, snaps...etc. and are easily removable for washing.

1 yard of each Purchased:
Solid Teal at $4.38 a yard
Yelllow Pattern $7.98 a yard
both from

Teal Pattern from Jo-anns on clearance for $9.99 a yard
Before- thought the fireman would like the red :(

The new bright spring colors really add a nice punch!

The red pattern - GONE!
Welcome to the new teal pillow!

With some of the remaining pieces of fabric, I am thinking to use them as curtain tie backs or maybe a framed art piece, check back to see what I do.
