Last week I showed you this cute little thrifty pillow I made over with Chalk Paint …. –>Jingle Y’all” Pillow Makeover.
Today I’m sharing with you the other pillow I painted, Naughty or Nice.

Cute, huh?

How sweet is it that you can change the side of the pillow to let Santa know if he should come visit or not? ;)

I don’t know about you but mine is always turned towards..naughty…I mean NICE, of course!

Here is the pillow before (and just so you know, I talked about buying pillows and such things from thrift stores…and my thoughts on that in the other pillow post above)

I painted this one with Emperor’s Silk Chalk Paint.

About 2 coats again. I wanted it bright and cheery so didn’t mix the paint this time.

I created these 2 Naughty or Nice graphics (both free for you to download, for personal use only)

After is was completely dry I transferred the graphics the same way as the other pillow (link at the top of this post).
Again, I staggered them.

I used white chalk this time because of the dark red background.

It looks a mess but I promise you can see the lines enough to paint the lettering in.

And also, no worries on the white chalk dust, it will wipe right away.

Painting “in the lines”.

Easy.

All finished and ready for the Annie Sloan Clear Wax sealer.

I’m loving the bright splash of red with all of the white in my room.

    1. Thanks Trisha! :) I think I missed this week but I’ll try to catch it next!! I’ve been stressing over my first holiday home tour (or any type of home tour!) for tomorrow! ;)

  1. Very, very nice! And Nancy is so nauuughty that she’s really, really nice. ;)

    I’ve painted small designs on pillows never a whole pillow. Must try! Thanky.

    1. LOL, Thanks so much Rosemary :) Oh yes, it was fun to transform it completely…like a totally new pillow. :)

      Nancy

  2. This is absolutely adorable! I’d love to make two of them and put the nice one on my side of the bed and the naughty one on my husband’s side. That would be a riot! I’m the kind of teacher who is always joking and would have so much fun putting the nice and naughty pillows in different kids’ chairs. They would get such a kick out of that. I love, love this project!!

    1. Thanks Paula!! Ha….love that!! ;) That would be so funny…it is a fun one to play around with for sure! I bet your kids would LOVE it!

      Nancy

  3. Nancy, that pillow is so cute!!! And I love the graphics you chose…. different for each side!

    And the red is great for a Christmas pillow!

    1. Thank you Karen :)
      Yes, I was looking through the graphics to see which seemed “nice” and which seemed “naughty”…if that makes any sense at all!! lol

  4. Love!! I have yet to paint anything fabric-related, but my day is coming, I assure you! I know which side of the pillow my hubby would prefer. :P

    1. Thanks Andi! It is different for sure but it works! And hahaha….probably the same side my husband would! ;)

      Happy weekend to you!
      Nancy

    1. Thanks Megan!! Yes, I love the CP for this…but I’m wanting to try regular paint with the medium next to see how different it is!

      Nancy

  5. Nancy,
    I was just going thru your blog, and found this. Of course I love it and am sure going to try it, but I have a more pressing and important question????????

    WHERE DO YOU FIND THROW PILLOWS FOR $.99 ??? I need to go to these Virginia thrift stores, because when I find things, NOTHING is .99 or even remotely as cheap as you find. LOL. I’m finding Good Will and the like are becoming expensive!

    I’ll have to go bargain hunting!

    1. Hey Lilli!
      Hahaa….yes, prices can be good around here….and not so good too! Furniture and things have gotten a bit pricey at some of the stores around here. BUT I think one of the reasons there are so many deals still is because this area is a large metropolis of about 10 cities and there are sooo many thrift stores here! Many, many! So that surely helps. Competition and all! ;)
      Nancy
