DIY Gold Striped Pillow

Here's a simple DIY I made for our master bedroom. I've had this thrifted chair for a while now but it needed a little companion. None of the pillows I had were working for me so I remembered I had bought some cloth napkins on clearance at Target a long time ago hoping to turn it into a pillow cover and I had leftover paint from Sarah's READ letters. So here is what I used. Please excuse the dirty tape, it was sitting in our garage covered in dust and dirt.
1. Cloth Napkins | 2. Foam Brush | 3. Gold Acrylic Paint | 4. Painter's Tape

Before sewing my pillow cover I taped one side to create a stripe and then painted it and layed it out to dry.
Once the paint dried I created my envelope pillow cover using this tutorial. I love envelope pillow covers they are so easy to make! In fact I'm going to create another for a pillow insert I bought for our bed. Here's my pillow cover all ready for it's pillow.
and here is my pretty new striped pillow sitting pretty on my thrifted chair.
I will be sharing a couple more DIY's as I continue to work on our bedroom so stay tuned for those and for the final reveal which will be up sometime early September.
