Another Ring Pillow

The color inspiration for this ring pillow came from the wedding invitation and the new Martha Stewart paint colors. I used felt on the last ring pillow which is really easy to work with and the edges don't fray, but the color choices are usually very limited, bright and bold. I was looking for more muted tones so I decided to go with linen, canvas and duck cloth. I used felt to cut out the letters and hand stitched them on to the linen pillow. It was so fun to make and I love the way it turned out! A few more of these and I'll have to open an Etsy store!

Shelves Before and After

Anyone that has ever been to any of my apartments in the last 10 years has seen these shelves. They are a little worn, but I can't seem to bring myself to getting rid of them. I've been looking for shelves for the kitchen to put my cookbooks on and decided to give the old shelves a makeover. This is the area I was thinking they could go...
I can't decide if they are cute or not? I'm still debating if I should put them up or look for new shelves.
