let’s play dress-up

Last week I was at my friend Carol‘s house and had the pleasure of seeing her newly redone guest room.

3 words…beau tee ful!!! ;)

The room was amazing and I’m going to photograph it soon to share it with you all. One detail that I absolutely loved was how Carol added a vintage brooch to a grain sack pillow. It’s amazing how one tiny detail can just have such a huge impact.

I went right home and added some texture and bling to a plain jane linen pillow on our bed.

The woven belt was a Goodwill find (99 cents!) that I picked up because I loved the color and texture.

I simply wrapped it around the pillow and attached a vintage brooch to it.

That little bit of bling really dresses it up.

What have you dressed up lately?

    Luv the little bit of sparkle it adds to the otherwise plain pillow. Sweet idea. Going looking to see what I can dress up now.
    :D Cheers.. Gee

    Very clever, indeed. I’m thinking I’ll try that somewhere – on the pillows that aren’t used in pillow fights!
