Covered Pillows

These are the pillows that were inherited with the set of couches we have. They match the couch, but they are not really MY style. I have lived with them in my living room for about 3 years - Ahhh! (don't judge me!). It's almost embarassing. I think my house is pretty cute, but to overlook these ugly pillows for that length of time is a crime!  
To make it worse, I have also had these pillows (there are 2 of them) and red small couch/chair in the SAME room. (Okay, so THAT is even more embarassing!) Just look:

So I have a red theme going on, but ugly, non matching pillows. So here is my cute fix, some pillow slipcovers!

Now comes the sigh of relief! My mismatched pillows are not only gone, but FABULOUS!! 

I am linking up:
