Fall decorating. Thank you black pillows! I decided to keep it black and white for the most part, so it was pretty easy to transition it into Halloween decor.
I'm a definite fan of how creepy this chair looks draped in tattered fabric. I found that pillow at Michaels a month or so ago. Probably paid too much for it, but I couldn't resist :)

Every time after I paint the ceiling or a wall in our house, I'm left with not so awesome looking lines where the wall meets the ceiling. No matter how hard I try, the paint just doesn't look right in areas. I think the cause is the textured ceiling, it just makes grooves and bumps that tape doesn't adhere to all the way or the ceiling line isn't perfectly straight. Here's the before of our bathroom. See the uneven lines?

1. Grab a pillow case that is already made to fit the pillow you want to cover. Place it on your fabric and cut a one inch border around it.
3. Lay the fabric right side up. Place the two pieces of sheet right side down on to the fabric where they overlap. Make sure to put the wider hem down first and then the smaller hem. Don't mind the awesomeness of these wrinkles :) To save time, I obviously didn't iron these. The wrinkles will show less when a pillow is in there.
4. Pin in place.
5. Sew in place leaving a border of about 1 inch.
