LARGE LEATHER + PAINTED ... PILLOWS?

Lately, my love of leather knows no bounds.

My experiments in painting leather pillows spawned this.  Surprisingly, even after the paint, the leather is still exceedingly buttery soft.  Who knew?

It's glorious because it's a real beast, at 27" or 30" square.  Have I mentioned that I LOVE positively ENORMOUS pillows?!!!  Large, and in charge!!!  No, in all seriousness, they command about 1000043294x the presence of those itsy bitsy 20 inchers that could easily fit in a... dollhouse. And plus, you can really sink into these monsters.

Yes! There is nothing quite like enormous pillows. We can hardly even find our sofa. This is probably a good time to confess that all of our sofa pillows are encrusted with spiked medallions that make sitting against them quite impossible...yikes...We have made several leather pillows, too...such a great material to work with!

Next thing you'll be on to painting cows if they stand still long enough...and they would look amazing as is this latest piece of art.

I know how you feel about large pillows. I love them as well. I don't like sitting in a chair, so I usually sit on the floor, which always calls for cushioning. So large pillows are always the best!

I'm not sure if I can adequately express how much I love this.

I love how decadent it is, but at the same time, very versatile.

Beautiful as always.

This is GORGEOUS. What kind of paint are you using? I would love to hear more about the process . . .
