DIY Liquid Gold Ombre Pillowcases

DIY Liquid Gold Ombre Pillowcases - Sugar & Cloth - Houston Blogger - Home Decor

I wanted to give you a little sneak peek of some of what you’ll see at tonight’s *DIY event at Ikea! I’m going to show you how to style the same bed set three different ways using accessories and a few simple DIY tricks that anyone can do, including these DIY ombre pillowcases.

Of course, I chose to use gold (per usual), but this is your chance to go wild with color in just the right amount. Pair it with all white wedding, or sweet and simple geometric patterns and you’re good to go!

*p.s.- You can still show up for tonight’s even at Ikea Houston at 7pm!

Materials:

  • Pillow (c/o Ikea)
  • Pillowcase (c/o Ikea)
  • Tape
  • Foam Brush
  • Magazine
  • Precious Metals paint (they also have deeper colors)

First of all, how many people can say they actual have pillowcases covered in liquid gold? Not many, so you’re welcome for that little bragging right.

To get started, insert a magazine inside the pillowcase so it doesn’t bleed and then tape down the pillowcase to make sure it won’t move about with your brush the paint on. At the edge of the pillow, paint the gold inwards with a dry foam brush and lift the brush up a little bit as you paint so it gives it a faded look. Do this all the way across the edge of the pillow and then let dry.

    Love this idea! But not a fan of the gold, maybe a brighter more vibrant color. But each to their own. :) Kind of reminds me of this scene… “That’s his sheet back there” http://youtu.be/CpkAsDrxk4Q

    I love this! How well does it do when washed?

      It actually softens it some, but the paint still stays in place :)

    So pretty! I can’t get enough of gold accents. It looks especially great with the against the white simplicity of the room.
