The Needlepoint Farmhouse Pillow and Items for Sale
I think it’s been pretty well established that I have a slight obsession with throw pillows. Especially the unique ones, ones that can’t be bought at stores, ones that are made from glorious fabrics or made from needlepoint or other thrifted things. I have an abundance of posts regarding these.
So when I saw this black and white farmhouse needlepoint piece discarded in the craft section of a thrift store, I knew it was coming home with me and would make the most beautiful, unique pillow of Pottery Barn proportions. Perhaps even more unique. But I also knew, thought I loved black and white, and though I love farmhouse, that I would likely not keep it. There are times now where my house is being more and more established and I see potential in thrifted items I can’t refuse. This needlepoint is one of them, the pillow potential got me, and it’s for sale.
I love that it is solely black and white. I styled it here with black and white and pale pink (my wedding colors almost 14 years ago), but it would go with any color scheme and any season. The scene is very reminiscent of Green Gables.
I think it rather draws you into a peaceful scene. I wrote last year about why I think there is such a farmhouse revival going on. Yes, I believe Joanna Gaines is the biggest factor, but there is more. You can read that here.
I made this pillow with a zipper and a new pillow insert from Target. The piping is done in black and white check to continue the farmhouse feel. The back is solid white duck cloth.
I really do love this pillow. I love how it transforms the scene in my master bedroom. So if it doesn’t sell, I won’t be heartbroken. But if it does, I’m needing to invest back into this blog some more.
I have to tell you, I had been anticipating buying tulips for this photo shoot in particular. Then my boys came home one evening with these tulips in hand, it was their idea! Obviously, they’ve been mentored well. I got to enjoy them for nearly a week!
So there you are, a black and white needlepoint farmhouse pillow. If you hare interested in purchasing it, I don’t have a proper store up at this time. So, unfortunately, that limits who I can sell to currently. I can sell to you if you’re local, Palmer-Wasilla, Anchorage area. And I would be willing to sell and send this (with additional shipping) if I know you personally. The pillow is priced at $45. You can contact me via the comments section, email or my number if you have it.
**The pillow has been sold and rightfully resides in an old farmhouse now.
Also, I am selling the bicycle lamp I made for my son’s nursery five years ago. I will not ship this piece, however, it is available for local pick up. It is priced at $35. **The lamp is spoken for.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
This is gorgeous. I am starting to re-do our master bedroom and love the look of yours.
Thank you so much, Margaret! It has been quite the long process. I finally feel like the room is becoming photo worthy from a couple of angles at least. 🙂 You can see the process in two other posts I did last year, one was when it was decked out for a Highland Christmas and the other was when I was it was finally beginning to take shape, and I gave decor tips on Finding Your Style. Perhaps they would be helpful to you in your decorating endeavor? I’m glad you liked it. I appreciate the encouragement very much!
Oh man…I can’t believe your selling the bicycle lamp. Charlie would love that. He loves anything to do with bicycles and his Birthday is coming up too. It also matches our bedroom colors too. However I totally understand why you wouldn’t want to ship it.
There may be ways to work that out. 😉 Anyhow, yes, I love the lamp, however it has been in a box ever since we moved nearly two years ago. It’s time someone enjoys it!
The piping really sets off the needlepoint. Gorgeous!
Thank you so much. It is a really striking pillow, I must say! 🙂
That pillow is beautiful! I hope you sell it. I love what you do to repurpose items. The lamp is adorable too. You have such a great talent. You are able to picture in your head how to repurpose items. Sometimes I can do that but currently I am too busy raising children.
Thank you so much Linda! I appreciate your encouragement every single time. And I understand about the raising kids! I’m in, 5 deep. Ha. And honestly, most weeks I only get a couple hours to be creative altogether (usually in 10 minute increments), but I’ve found it’s so life-giving to me that it is actually beneficial to my and my family’s well being. 🙂 So I hope you find moments to do something that brings you life in the midst of being a fabulous mother!
Your pillow is beautiful. However, I can’t use it ;( It looks perfect in your room…you should keep it!!! In all my thrifting I’ve never come across “lost” needlepoint pieces. mmmmmm…..better keep a better eye out!!!
Do you have an Etsey store? If so, I will check it out.
Have a good week…God Bless!!!
You’re so sweet Addie! And as much as I love this pillow, I don’t need it. I will happily sell it to someone who is in love with it. I don’t have an Etsy shop at this time. I may in the future set up my own online store? To sell a few items here and there like this. 🙂
Hmmmmm, would black & white go in my living room? I absolutely LOVE that scene on the pillow. You’ve heard it hundreds of times, but – wow, you have an eye! I just love what you did with that piece. Now to consider if it would go……?
It is such a peaceful scene, so reminiscent of Green Gables me thinks…or your farm. 😉 I think black and white goes with nearly any color scheme, personally. It’s so neutral that it can be chameleon and compliment anything or accent. 🙂 Let me know if you can’t stop thinking about it. 🙂
It would be fun to have something you made. I’d like to see it in person. 🙂
Yes, you will have to check it out. 🙂
I enjoy my pillow very much. Even my kids do, too! Thank you. 🙂
It’s perfect for your farmhouse! I’m very happy it ended up there!
