Angie from Angie’s Roost had plans to make a pair of rosette-covered lampshades for the nightstands in her master bedroom. When a design challenge to recreate an item from Anthropologie came along, she kicked it into high gear and got her rosette making on. Angie first covered her inexpensive white shades with fabric so no white would be peeking through and then covered it with rosettes… lots and lots of rosettes. Angie doesn’t deny that this was a time-consuming process, but how pretty is her new shade???
Steph from Building This Nest had been craving some change to the throw pillows on her couch and loved the look of a pretty rosette pillow cover from Anthropologie. Unfortunately, $58 was definitely not in her budget for a cover alone, and she knew she could make it for way less. Using a $3 sheet from the thrift store, Steph sewed up a cover to fit a pillow form she already had and saved herself a pretty penny. Well, 5,500 pennies actually!
