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.


  1. Love it! Where do you find pillows that fit in the pillow case?

    1. Thank you! I used a pillow I already had from Target. :)


I would LOVE to hear from you! :)
