Thrifty Trio





Well, I finally made the pillow to go with my chair and footstool, so I thought I would share the completed look.



Footstool before.



And after.  You can see how I re-made it here.  It was a zero cost project. 



I slipcovered this thrift shop find many years ago.  Here's a peek at the chair underneath.





This pillow was made from leftovers.  I just bought the form.




The great thing about this is that I made a plain white pillow.






And added this sleeve. It can easily be removed for a completely new look.


And there you have it.  Since I think this Furniture Feature is both Frugal and Frugalicious, I will be joining these Friday Parties.  Hope you have a good weekend.

  2. Love the slipcover on the chair and the pillow and stool are just fabulous. What a super idea to use the sleeve for a decorative addition to the white pillow. I will have to remember that one. Great idea. Hugs, Marty

  6. the trio looks fantastic! love the stool makeover - barely recognisable as the same stool. I really like the way the band on the cushion is alsoa slip. must remember that idea for future reference.

  7. Too darn cute for words! As much as I {{{heart}}} white slipcovers, the sweet floral print on the chair is a lovely unexpected twist. You (and all of the uber-talented seamstresses in Blogland) make me want to try my hand at slipcovers, even 'tho I don't sew anything more than a button...and I only do that under protest. :)

  8. A very beautiful combination. I must say I'm in love with that pillow. What a cute idea. The rose really sets it off. And the 'leaf' is a cute touch. The footstool is adorable, too.
