Pillow and Art Wall Questions.

After I posted pictures of my Entertainment Center turned Bench , I had a ton of people email and comment asking about my pillows.


I picked up my pillows at TJ Maxx, and I found similar ones for my couch at Marshalls. I also just recently discovered that another blogger actually bought the exact same fabric online to make some very pretty curtains.
Judith at Creating Balance did a whole post on finding the fabric {Wilmington-Covington-Multi}and where she bought it.
***********************
I also had a few people ask about the Kid's Art Wall Clothes Line that I have hanging in my hallway for the boys' art.


Jason actually did all the work associated with hanging the clothes line, but I don't mind sharing what he did. Here is a close up of the end of the clothes line.

I think this is called an eye bolt. We decided how big we wanted the clothes line to be, and Jason screwed in two eye bolts on either end. Then he cut some picture hanging wire to the length that we wanted and twisted each end of the wire onto the eye bolts. Super easy to do...at least it looked easy while I was watching him do it!
*****************
P.S. Those were blueberries all over my kitchen floor in the picture from yesterdays post. Fresh blueberries from my parents' yard that Henry and my mom picked. I was just a little sad to have to throw them away.
Pin It!

Thanks for sharing about the picture line. Now if I could find a saying to put above it.

I was one if those people who had to know where you got your pillows. I never get lucky when it comes to pillows at TJ Maxx but at least now I know where I can get the fabric to make them. Thanks!

Never would have guessed blueberries...now just a little sad like you to see all that effort on the floor. :-(

I had missed the art wall post...very cool!

Kmama said...

I love the idea of the picture line in your hallway. What a great way to add some color!

We have a similar clothes line thing for our artwork as well...they actually carry it at Ikea. (in the curtain rod section). You have such an eye for design...I wish you were here to help me with my house!

Hi, I saw this awesome idea for the clothesline through pinterest and was wondering if I could use a picture of your idea in a blog post I am writing about many ideas for what to do with your children's art? It will be posted for the families at my school to see. I teach K-6 art. Let me know!

Marcia said...

Hi! I would like to link a picture of your idea for children's art on my blog. I am writing a post about what to do with all of your kid's masterpieces. I will be posting it for the parents at my school (K-6) to see. I would of course, link back to your blog.
