I've been feeling blue lately. Not sad. Just feeling the need for blue in my life.
You probably saw my recent blue and white Ikat chair reupholstery project. Now, with a little help from DecoArt, Cutting Edge Stencils, Canvas Corp, and Rockler (all sponsors of The DIY Club), I used an hourglass stencil to add a graphic punch of blue to a canvas pillow cover.
I was surprised at how quickly the project went. I'm thinking of all kinds of other stencils and paint colors I can use to transform more canvas pillow covers! While I have made pillow covers before (with the help of my dear mother), I love the concept of pre-made pillow covers...saves me the hyper-ventilation that accompanies my attempts to sew!
So, this settee vignette went from okay (above)...
...to more visually interesting (below).
I love the large graphic! It adds a contemporary edge to balance the traditional settee. And the blue color is perfect with the denim bolster. It's a happy, eclectic mix!
