I recently got a new rug for the family room. What was there before? A green carpet remnant that we used to define our bedroom area when we lived in a pool house. Okay, okay. It wasn’t a terrible green, and it was fairly soft…but I was ready for an upgrade! Once we got our new rug—swoon–our pillows needed an update to match. I began perusing Target, World Market, even Home Goods, and they were all at least $20 a pop. I sugared up my hubby to let me get the rug, spending $120 on pillows was not gonna fly.

That’s it! Can’t beat $5! :]
