Accent Pillow Stencils Named Best New Home Product by This Old House
Welcome back, my Cutting Edge Stencils friends! We are super excited to kick-off this week with an awesome stencil mention in one of our absolute favorite DIY publications, This Old House Magazine. Yup, that’s right! The November/December issue of This Old House features our sister company, Paint-A-Pillow! It’s not just any old mention, Paint-A-Pillow has been named as one of the Top 100 New Home Products for 2015 by the publication. Before you rush to the newsstands to purchase your own copy, let’s rehash all the juicy details of the latest craft stencil sighting.
Top 100 Best New Home Products
In this issue, Time Inc.’s This Old House added Paint-A-Pillow to its fifth annual “This Old House Top 100,” a list of the 100 best new home products of the year. Each year, the editors spend months scouting, testing, and culling countless new products for the home to identify the most distinctive, useful, and innovative in seven categories: Kitchen, Bath, Tools, Home Tech, Building Products, Outdoor Living, and Finishing Touches.
Editor Scott Omelianuk comments, “Home companies release thousands of new products every year, and our job is to highlight the ones with staying power—those that are in some way brilliant and will make our readers’ lives better.”
This Old House suggests that readers consider using a Paint-A-Pillow kit to stencil an accent pillow.
The article says, ” Playing designer has never been so easy. This DIY kit lets you customize the perfect accent pillow from a whopping selection of 160 stencil designs. You receive a canvas cover, a stencil, paint, brushes and a roller—even the pillow!—all in one box, delivered to your door.”
If you’re looking to recreate these color enthused accent pillows, it’s super easy. Simply select the Hacienda kit from Paint-A-Pillow, then choose a white pillow cover and sapphire blue and yellow ochre fabric paint. Watch the accent pillow tutorial on our How-To page and you’ll be all set!
