Stenciled Pillows to Lighten Up a Dark Room

stenciled pillows

With brown furniture and few windows in her family room, Nan from You Could Make That wanted to find a way to lighten up the space. She decided new pillows were in order and created four different designs using, stencils, craft paint, and white denim. Nan says, “Four new pillows, inspired by Horchow and Pottery Barn, for the price of some denim – a far cry from the $100 plus price tag!”

“You Are My Sunshine” Pillow

The song “You Are My Sunshine” holds a special place in the heart of Brandi from Don’t Disturb This Groove. When her daughter was a baby, Brandi’s mother would rock her and sing the sweet lullaby. Brandi was inspired to preserve that special memory by stamping the lyrics onto a pillow for her daughter. I absolutely adore how the pillow came out and the meaning behind it!

Stenciled Number Pillows

If you follow me on Infarrantly Creative or have been around KOD for some time, you know I have a little (okay… a big) thing for making pillows. One of my favorite time savers is using ready-made covers from IKEA just like Erika from Retropolitan did to create these number pillows. Since the covers cost just a few dollars each, they are still cost-effective for the DIYer and provide a great starting point for stenciling and embellishing. In just an hour, Erika was able to make all four of these stenciled number pillows!

Cupkateer Ananda knew as soon as she saw some felt pillows from PB Teen that she could replicate them for cheap. Pottery Barn charges a whopping $39 for one of their pretty pillows, but crafty ladies like Ananda know that felt’s hardly that expensive! The Cupkateer version? $5! Ananda even breaks it down for you step-by-step with patterns and all so you can make your own!

Round Rosette Pillow

After getting some new bedding from Anthropologie, Camille at Sugar Baby Boutique was smitten with their round rosette pillow as soon as she laid eyes on it. However, as fabulous as it would look on her beloved new bedding, Camille says, “$78 for a small accent pillow wasn’t going to happen any time soon. Especially when I made my knock-off for F-R-E-E.” How sweet is that? This is one of the closet knockoffs I’ve seen in awhile!

I’m kind of like a kid in a candy shop when I get into IKEA.

With a few simple cuts and a little sewing, Emily whipped up some pillow covers that have all the look of a pricey Pottery Barn pillow without the expense.
