The ways you can mix and match different sizes, shapes, designs and colors means the options are endless! For a more subtle and textured effect, paint…

After seeing some DIY’s on Apartment Therapy & The Little Green Notebook using this gorgeous Les Touches Snow Leopard print, we were inspired to create something ourselves! After finding a fabulous Les Touches pillow at Arianna Belle’s online shop (unfortunately sold out), we came across the GRANAT pillow while at IKEA for only $4 & figured we’d take a stab at recreating it on our own! With a copy of the print, we used the large sharpie to recreate the print on our Ikea Pillow & then went over the spots with our fine print Sharpie to give it a more realistic feel.

An easy way to spice up a room on the cheap!
