Failure is something I’m used to. As a DIY blogger. I try projects that bomb all the time. Sometimes I still try photographing projects, that I know in my mind are failures. Just trying to salvage some of my wasted time, hoping that it’s not actually a flop. I could even get as far as photo editing before I decide to let it go… lol. But I keep trying. The DIYer in me, makes me want to try new things and experiment with my creativity all the time! I’m telling you this, because I totally thought these abstract Spring pillows would be a flop. As I prepared to make them, I told myself it would be ok if the pillow covers I paid for ended up in the garbage, and the paint didn’t cost much anyway… haha. To my surprise, I LOVED them. Probably my favourite Spring project yet!
If you are intimidated by painting projects (like I was)– don’t be! You can watch and follow exactly what I did. I promise you can do it!
I set-up my pillow cases by putting cardboard pieces inside of them to prevent the paint from bleeding through.
Once the pillow cases were ready, I poured out some paint and went to work painting my pillows. You can see the whole process in the video here:
