Just Like Botox!

The pillows are donezo so I have succeeded in giving my family room a little temporary cosmetic procedure! Nothing big, just something to make it feel a little better about it's self. I wish they were bigger and fluffier but that is what I get for buying them on sale at Hancock Fabrics. Whatever, they will do for now. Next stop: learn to make pillows with zippers. I need to option of switching the covers out when I get sick of them; which I can guarantee will happen.



Another tiny project that I finished in about 15 minutes on Monday's "OMG there is going to be an ice storm you don't have to come in to work, oh wait I changed my mind you have to come in at noon" morning off was trying to update the look of this little beauty.

It was Tyler's late grandmother's sewing stool and I decided I needed to add it to my collection. I both painted and recovered my other one but I decided to take the lazy route and just cover this one.

If you don't have a sewing stool, get one. They are so worth the $10 at most flea markets and serve as a great looking junk drawer for any room!


  1. as much as i love the new pillows & stool, i have to say that my favorite part of this post was the title. cracks me up!

  2. LOVE it!! I want Tyler to do a photo shoot of the whole house!!!

  3. i thought the title was clever too :)
    looks great!

  4. I got a sewing machine for x-mas and have become a "sewing machine" too! I love it! Post some pics of your t-shirt quilt!! It's on my upcoming project list!

  5. It looks great! I love how a splash of color and some quick upgrades can make a room look completely different. I agree with the earlier comment... tell Tyler we want a tour of the house :) Hope you guys are doing well!
