Pillow and Entryway Redo

I have been wanting to recover some pillows for some time now.  Today I got the supplies and spent the afternoon on the first one while the kids had "quiet time".  

The husband hates how our entryway bench becomes a gathering place for bags and junk, so my solution is to cover it with pillows.  For this one, I used this tutorial from Make It and Love It.  It's hard to see with the bad lighting, but I used black and white contrasting fabrics for my first pillow.  It used to be stained red "velvet".  Isn't it pretty now?

Now my entryway is starting to come together.  I'm not sure that I love it yet.  I think I need something larger over the FAMILY sign.  But it's a start.   


  1. Did you make the family sign? It is so pretty! I think the whole area looks great!

  2. Yep I did- it's posted earlier on my blog. You can find the tutorial I used at dittledattle.blogspot.com

  3. I just recently found your blog and I love it! You have some wonderful ideas. I love this family wall hanging and am going to make one for our family. :) I was wondering though... We are trying to find a storage bench like the one you have in the picture. Do you mind sharing where you found it?


Thanks so much for stopping by! I try to answer all valid comments as soon as possible, but you can also email info@occasionallycrafty.com with an urgent question. Have a great day!
