Piano Stool Makeover

July 13, 2010 in DIY

Finally a shot of my hand-me-down piano stool, all made over. The fabric choice was inspired by Pottery Barn:

The butterfly fabric was a steal at a crafts store. I added nailhead trim along the edge, and picked gold since the detailing on the stool is brass. (+ I always preferred gold :-)

This is how it started out. The old fabric was all kinds of ugly.

My DIY Zebra Accent Pillow!

May 30, 2010 in DIY

A zebra pillow with a good pattern and a nice price was surprisingly hard to find. And what do we do when we cant buy it? We DIY it!

This must be the quickest and easiest DIY ever! One white pillow, a magic marker and some black acrylic paint.

The black pint did not come out as patchy as it looks below, it’s just the sunlight that makes it look like that. I’m thinking I might do some more pillow painting, just haven’t decided on any specific pattern yet.  Any ideas?
