The rug came from RugsUSA during their last 70% off sale. I’m totally loving black and white right now.
I normally give furniture that I find a total makeover, but I didn’t want to change a thing about this chair. Maybe it just needed a pillow.
I found this swiss cross fabric at Spoonflower but at $17.50 plus s&h I knew I was too cheap for that. So I made a little swiss cross pillow with freezer paper stencil and some black fabric paint.
I used freezer paper (found at Wal-Mart) to create my stencils. And with the help of my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the crosses. But you could cut them out by hand also (if you’re ambitous/ slightly crazy)
Place a piece of cardboard in between the two layers of fabric (so the paint doesn’t bleed through). I had already sewn my pillow cover together so I had to squeeze the cardboard through the hole (maybe not the best way to do it).
The paint bled under the stencil in a few tiny spots but overall it left perfectly crisp lines.
