Rock the Block

We don’t always have to go to the store and buy things everytime we want to give our homes a new look. All it takes is creativity and resourcefulness – transforming existing materials found in your house to give it a new purpose.

In this easy project you get to design your pillows with your favorite colors. 🙂
