I recently took a trip to Ikea with the goal of buying
some folding patio chairs to replenish our supply.
Sadly, they had none. All gone. Oh well.
I did, however, find this woven striped rug--
not too painful an impulse buy at $3.75.
And, I got out of there spending less than $25,
which is pretty impressive--I'm sure you agree.
Inspired by, Rie at Home & Harmony,
I imagined this rug (and it's twin, which I also bought)
as a bolster pillow with a grain sack look.
So I rummaged around until I found some scraps of dropcloth
left over from my first slipcover adventure.
cut tore some long strips and tied up
an old floppy pillow to make a long roll shape.
Then I rolled the pillow up in the rug
and tied the ends with more strips of dropcloth.
Hmm. Did this work?
Does it look more like a slightly nautical, vintage-y grain sack bolster pillow,
or, like a pillow rolled up in a rug?
