My "Anthropologie" pillows

Like most everyone who has a decorating blog, I LOVE Anthropologie. Since I can't afford most of their stuff, I try to mimic what I can.

I am in the process of re-doing my living room. My new couches are supposed to come tomorrow and I am wrapping up lose ends before I show the reveal. I posted the other day about the wing chairs I am reupholstering. You can read about that HERE. For these chairs, I need a couple of new throw pillows. I had a couple of old ones laying around. One had a broken zipper on the slip cover and the other has a paint stain on it. I purchased a yard of fabric that I felt had a very "Anthroplogie" vibe.

I used about half the fabric for two pillows. I can't wait to put them on my "new" chairs.

In order to save the remaining fabric for additional pillows, I covered the backside with leftover drop cloth fabric. It saves on the cost and also gives a unique look in addition.

No promises, but I really hope to reveal the reupholstered chairs tomorrow night....

Last night to enter my GIVEAWAY from Ooh La la Company....

  3. ooooh, great {frugal} idea with the drop cloth backing!! love it~

  4. Love the fabric... definitely an Anthro feel! I do the same thing with the backing of my pillows. You get a lot more bang for your buck and it looks better ( in my opinion). Looking forward to your reveal! xx

  5. cant wait for the reveal! i really like the fabric too!

  6. What a preety fabric I love this shade of blue

  7. great fabric! Can't wait to see the reveal especially the chairs! And I'm a big fan of using different fabric as backing for the pillows...I just like that look more and that way I don't feel bad when I buy a designer fabric bc i don't have to buy as much!

  8. Hey Lisa,
    I love the color!
    I can't wait to see everything!!

  9. One time I got paint on one of my mom's pillows. Thankfully I made her a new pillow case and she forgave me.
