Come find out how you can personalize your cushion covers like Cait from Little City Farmhouse did with this rustic deer silhouette in Vanilla Frosting!

Hello Country Chic readers!

I am popping in today to share with you a fun project that was a first for me – painting on fabric! After watching County Chic’s tutorial on painting fabric, I decided I needed to give it a whirl!

For this project, I whipped up a pillow cover, but you could definitely use a store-bought pillow for this. Once it was sewn, I made sure it was smooth and laying flat on the table. I slipped a piece of cardstock inside the pillow just in case any paint decided to bleed through (and none did!).

I marked the center of the stencil and lined it up straight on the pillow cover, and pressed it down nice and flat, making sure to really press down all the edges. I used a stencil brush to paint in a dabbing motion. I used Vanilla Frosting in the all-in-one paint.

Once I built up a nice layer of paint, I peeled off the stencil. I let the paint thoroughly dry before stuffing my pillow into it!

Cait {Little City Farmhouse}

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.
