All too often, I come across pillows in stores and think "That would be cute... if it wasn't so boring."
Well, they don't have to be boring. It just takes a little love from your creative hand!
I bought this pillow from IKEA for $12.
It's perfect to accent our pirate-themed kitchen. However, it's so boring!
I didn't want to change it too much, maybe just add a bit of color.
I pulled out my embroidery hoop, needle and thread - and set to work!!!
This little update only took me 15 minutes.
It's not a dramatic change but it was enough to make me feel better about the pillow.
There are a number of ways to upgrade pillows. Think of:

So next time a pillow at the store catches your eye, don't pass it up for being too boring.
Add your own touch and you'll have a one of a kind piece of decor!
