More office progress

Little by little, I am determined to get our office space/bonus/music/guest room done without getting sidetracked by other DIY projects. I now have two throw pillows sewn and I finished the “music corner.” 

I used all the fabric I had left over from the curtains to make the pillows. 

I can sew together this particular style of throw pillow in about a half hour. I use two equal pieces of fabric lined up together with the “wrong” side of the fabric facing out on both sides. Then I eyeball and sew a half-inch hem on all four sides, leaving about 4-5 inches open at one end.

Then I turn the pillow inside out, feeding the fabric through the hole. I stuff the pillow with polyester fiberfill and, finally, I hand-stitch the hole shut.

Now I have two throw pillows in the bonus room that match the curtains.

I really want to sew one more accent pillow using scrap fabric in a different pattern, but I haven’t gotten to that yet.

For wall art in the “music corner” of the room, I purchased three wall hooks for instruments. I paid $11 total for them on Amazon.

My next goal for the space is to refinish a bookshelf for the other side of the room and spruce up the entertainment center.

Why DIY projects are you working on? Are you finding it hard to stay focused?

  1. Looks beautiful! I love the fabric…colors are so gorgeous. Displaying the instruments is such a great idea.

    I’m scattered and not getting anything completed. 🙂 I really need to focus.
