From $3 IKEA Floor Mat To Fabulous Floor Pouf

From $3 IKEA Floor Mat To Fabulous Floor Pouf
Wanna know how a couple of these striped rugs become this cushy piece of bum lovin'? Well, sit down and relax. Let me start from the beginning. I happened upon these beauties a while back whilst browsing on West Elm's website. What a great {and fashionable} extra seating option, I thought. {I don't know how it is at your house, but when we get the whole fam together, it always seems like we are running out of seating. If money were no option, I probably would have just bought them directly from West Elm. I don't know if I am just picky {or cheap...or both}, but I couldn't find any fabric that "spoke" to me. No angelic light, no overflowing of emotion. They are $3 rugs from IKEA. All you need is:mediocre sewing skills {by that I mean, the ablility to "fudge it" a little and sew in a straight line}. A Zipper {optional, but with five kids I needed my pouf cover to be removable/washable...this is where my fudging skills came in...didn't know how to sew in a zipper til I did it.

Fleece Flower Petal Pillows Hi, I'm Laura, and I'm addicted to fleece! (Phew, it feels so much better to get that out in the open :) ) Seriously, though, can you blame me?! Fleece is inexpensive, comes in tons of different colors and patterns, is soft and cozy, and doesn't fray or require hemming/finishing of edges. So far, I've used it to make Fleece Boa scarves, a cute Reverse Applique scarf and a No-Sew Fleece Pillow.

Pottery Barn Knock-Off Pillows I have a fun pillow makeover to share with you today! Back in the spring I found the most amazing ginormous pillow at Rugged Wearhouse for only $5. It was a blank canvas just waiting to be transformed. I scoured Pottery Barn for inspiration pillows and stumbled across two that would look great in my living room: the poppy pillow and the lavendar monogram pillow. Both of these pillows are embroidered and, if you've ever visited my blog, you know that I DO NOT sew. But that's okay.

DIY Dog Bed From An Old Drawer As a part of the Lowe’s Creative Ideas team, I was excited that the May Challenge revealed using Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year…emerald!
