A TEMPORARY SIDE TABLE MADE FROM A WIRE PLANT STAND AND A ROUND WOODEN SLAB FROM MENARDS THAT FITS INSIDE PERFECTLY. NO TOOLS REQUIRED, ALL I DID WAS WEDGE THE WOOD TIGHTLY INTO THE WIRE STAND UNTIL IT WAS SNUG AND CALL IT GOOD!
After the Christmas decorations were put away I was ready to have my house back in order with minimal decorating and less things sitting around. I normally have my surfaces decorated heavily but I’m going for a cleaner look now.
If you’re following my new series “Talk Till Dawn” you know I’ve recently ordered new furniture. The only thing that’s staying is the vintage school chair sitting beside my whimsical DIY plant stand table.
I’m spending today pairing down my throw pillow stash. Our youngest son moved home some time ago, but while he was away his closet was turned into my pillow hoarding hideaway. I’ve decided the only colors I’m keeping are black, white, tan, and gray. Everything else will need to find a new home.
I have at least 50 pillow inserts (who needs that many?). I’ll keep 15 and pillow slips in the neutral colors I listed above. Then I’ll have to stay out of the pillow isle at TJMaxx. My new rule is I can purchase a pillow cover but if it’s a pillow that the insert can’t be removed it’s not coming home with me.
I have no idea why manufacturers don’t make more slipcovers without the insert. If anyone has a favorite pillow cover source leave it in the comments please. I often just make my own when I can’t find the fabric I’m looking for and that’s still an option. Please tell me I’m not the only one who has a throw pillow problem.
