You might remember a couple months ago we painted these stenciled tables using the French Script stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils. They recently asked if we’d be interested in trying their Paint-A-Pillow product line for free.
Since I’m still working on pieces of nautical decor for Max’s bedroom makeover (remember the ship dresser ?) I chose the Anchors Away pillow kit so I could make pillows for his bed. You can choose either a white or natural pillow cover. I went with natural, and chose Navy Blue and Ruby Red paint colors.
The kit comes with a stenciling frame that I loved. A piece of cardboard slides into the pillow to keep the paint from leaking through to the other side. The frame holds your pillow fabric tight and the stencil securely in place so nothing shifts around while you’re painting.
I decided to do a stripe on the back of the pillows and used painters tape to make the lines.
I decided to paint one anchor red and the rest navy, and paint the stripes on the back red as well.
Once the paint is dry it needs to be heat set with an iron, then they’re ready to use. What do you think? Pretty cute, huh?
If you want to check out some of the other stencil options, you can find them on the Paint-A-Pillow website.
