This couch was my Mom's couch, and now it sits here in our family room. It was a beautiful couch in her Henderson, Nevada home, and now it is handsome couch in our Colorado Western home (at least I think so). At first I didn't think it was something I would have picked out for myself, but I have come to realize how much it really fits with our "somewhat" "Cowboy" decor. It has a "Western" look underneath all of the classy pillows.
I do love the color and texture of her pillows (above), but they are the source of the clash.
We realized that the fringe and the metal tacks give the couch that "Western" look, that we like, and the couch fabric reminds me of a cross between burlap, linen and cordoroy
We decided if we changed out the couch pillows, we could change the look of the couch in a big way.
So I took three of the pillows and made them new cases. I went with a Faux Cow skin, which I got for 40% off at Hobby Lobby and some faux leather, which was purchased as a remnant.
In less than an hours time I had the pillows done.
We liked it.
I took the turquoise colored pillows and put them downstairs in our den…. and they went perfectly there (sorry no picture yet). Then I took two small leather pillows from down there and put them on this couch.
Pillows are a great way to change up your decorating, without a huge expense.
Have a great week everyone!
