After getting the new indoor/outdoor rug, I don’t like the polka dot Ikea pillows anymore. Too many patterns! I have been looking for some affordable replacements everywhere.
Today I decided to write a post about some Target pillows that I found the other day.
Now I have to take a little detour first. So if you don’t like cats, please skip the first section of this post.
I tried so hard today to get some nice shots of the pillows in the room and if you notice in the pictures, it’s a cloudy day. The lighting stinks.
After trying different lighting options, I started to snap away. AND THERE… the cats! What’s with them and photos anyway. Did you ever hear about the “photo bombing” trend? Well, I think cats invented that.
|LOL, isn’t it a good shot?|
Haha, you don’t even know how many times I had to run and grab one of them to drag them out of the picture, claws draging on the new rug… only for it to run back in the picture. They are probably thinking: “Hey what’s going on here? The human must think it’s very interesting, so I gots to check it out!” Or they were just trying to tell me to stop taking pictures during sucky weather which equals bad lighting.
And this is not the first project they were interfering with. LOL…it’s every SINGLE one of them.
You might ask why I’m trying to take them out of the picture? Here’s the thing: I have 4 cats and while one of them in a picture here and there is alright, every picture with one to four cats isn’t cool anymore. I might start looking like the crazy cat lady (not a DIY/Design blogger) or an animal shelter! (Wink, wink) I’m not kidding myself… I know I’m a crazy cat lady and my neighbors would agree!
But, I have to admit, they are darn cute while photo bombing my pictures!
(Here is some visual aid. I can’t post them all since some of them were way to dark!)
So any way, the problem has been finding some grey-ish pillows that are as snuggly as the Ikea pillows. I can’t find any zippered affordable pillows. They have grey velvet pillows at Ikea but they are way too big.
I have been eyeing up these pillows from Target for a while but didn’t want to spend $24.99 for pillows that didn’t have a zipper. I love being able to wash the covers whenever the kids get food and dirt on them.
So I couldn’t believe my eyes when I went to Target the other day and they had THOSE pillows on clearance for $7.48. Wootwoot!
|UNDER PENALTY OF LAW THIS TAG IS NOT TO BE REMOVED EXCEPT BY THE CONSUMER|
I always wonder what the penalty would be 🙂 Does anybody know?
I love their look, but my son and daughter are complaining they are too itchy. Hmmm, might not need a zipper after all for washing because there’s a chance they’ll leave them alone due to itchiness!
I might have to recommend itchy wool pillows to moms out there. Don’t make them too snuggly or they’ll never stay clean 😉
|I had to clip this photo too, to cut out some more kitties! I have the same pillows on the other couch.|
I do like the look but obviously I’m not sold on them yet! But what the heck for this price!
So RUNNNNN to Target and get some itchy pillows for $7.48, haha!
Talk to you soon fellow webbers, have a great weekend und guten Tag!
