Tea dying project complete!

Well I actually managed to complete my tea dying project. Although not a difficult thing to do it was time consuming as I was tea dying pillows with the stuffing in them. I am pleased with the result but I think the next time I would just spray them. It took FOREVER for them to dry. This is what they looked like before...white eyelet throw pillows.

And this is after I tea dyed them!I prefer the after much better! They are actually a little darker than they look in the pic. I have a matching comforter that I am going to do...when the weather is warmer and I can take it outside and spray it.

I wanted to show you all a pic of my house taken in 1905. The people we bought it from left us a copy of this newspaper photo. As you can see it had beautiful trees around it(most were lost in a hurricane)and a front porch! We love the look of the front porch and it will definately be a future project to add it back on. I cant imagine why anyone would tear it off! You can see a pic of the house as it stands now in my first post. Thanks for reading!

  1. The pillows turned out great Sis! I can't wait to see the picture of them finished and on the bed.

    Its neat to have the picture of how the house looked. You should frame it!
