Thank you to Artistic Den for supplying the brilliant (in brightness and quality!) Fluro Pink Fabric Paint, that I used to paint plain white pillowcases and turn them into designer scalloped painted pillowcases. I bought a packet of plain white pillowcases from Target (Australia) that were just $12 (for the pair) – BTW… 500 thread count and Australian Cotton and very nice quality! So with these, some other simple supplies and Fabric Paint (no more than $10), you too can make these adorable pillowcases.
My previous post How to Paint Pots to Look like Faux Cement awhile back showed the results of this painting technique and now I have re-done another pot and this time took photos of all the steps involved along the way.
So here is the FULL TUTORIAL – Complete with Step-by-Step Instructions.
I have showed larger images and the steps, PLUS down the bottom of the page, you’ll find a handy reference of summarised images (smaller format), to help if you are actually doing the tutorial while on a tablet or phone.
I’m still loving the rose gold / copper with dusty pink styling at the moment and Monstera leaves. So on this very rainy weekend, I’ve combined the two. Pictured is an original print I’ve designed using one of the leaves from my Monstera plant, as inspiration. It’s designed to fit an 8 x 10″ frame (you’ll need to trim the paper to fit if you don’t use photo paper), but you can just print it on A4 paper (as above) and stick it to the wall with washi tape. If you’re not in Australia, just your standard printer paper should be fine too. Read more…
Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus lyrata) that is! I picked one up recently from Bunnings. I have been looking for awhile now and I jumped over the moon when I saw them! Well worth the wait.
Fiddle Leaf Fig plants have such beautiful large leaves. The ceramic white planter is also from Bunnings and the faux mid century planter stand is from Kmart – only $6.50! I might spray paint it metallic copper. These Kmart planters have been very popular – they look great for a fraction of the cost of a real mid century planter.
Do you have a favourite houseplant?
It’s also available in Silver!
