Remember how I declared 2017 to be my "year of the brave"? I finally made a bit of a jump for our living room: colorful throw pillows! I know what you're thinking, "what's so brave about that?" In my case, A LOT.
We have had a brown couch with brown throw pillows for years. This drab boring couch just being blah. Don't get me wrong: it's definitely the safe route with two young and very messy boys (no pink couches around here!). Still, something just had to change.
I have been doodling patterns for years and we finally made a decision on which patterns we wanted for the couch. To be honest, we were a bit torn. I kept arguing, "but these don't match!" Finally, my husband looked at me and said "so what?" I paused. He was right. So what? It's our home - we do what we want!
We ordered them, and now we have a wonderful spruced up couch. If you follow along on Instastories, you probably saw me opening the packages live. ICYMI, view the edited video below to see them in action!
P.S. - This project totally inspired my kid to make his own pillow!
I draw, make, and occasionally tell a story.
