A quick pillow embellishment……

 

I bought these grey velvet pillow

covers when H&M had them on sale a few months ago.

At the time I didn’t have a specific spot in mind for them but

they were such a good deal I couldn’t pass them up!

The pillow covers eventually found

a home on the slipcovered club chairs in the living room.

I loved the color with the neutral linen slipcovers but felt like they needed

just a little something……. so I added letter appliques.

I bought iron on appliques which look just like a stitched monogram.

The cost for two pillows was less than

$10 and it took about half an hour to complete.

What a great idea to add a monogram to those pillows! That instantly raised their chic level. Love the changes you've made so far, including that pretty rug!
