Where to Find Inexpensive Pillow Covers

March 25, 2014

First of all I'd like to thank Marty from A Stroll Thru Life for cluing me in on this amazing pillow cover opportunity. Marty posted about changing it up a bit in her living room recently, and she shared her awesome pillow cover finds. 

Who knew that Hobby Lobby now carries pillow covers? 

Was I the only one in the dark about this?
Since switching out pillows is one of the easiest ways to change the look and feel of a room, I knew I had to check out my local Hob Lob and see if they had something to spruce up our master bedroom. I had already changed things up a bit to make the house "show ready," but I felt it needed something more. 
Here is the realtor's picture of our master bedroom before I added in my newest pillow cover find.

I know, it's a r-e-a-l-l-y wide angle.  Sorry, it's all about making your rooms look B-I-G when your house is for sale!  Ironically, this is a really huge room for real, even without the wide photo-angling.  

  I was going for a neutral color palette since:1) I happen to like neutral colors and 2) it's probably the best way to go when your house is for sale.
But like I said, being the pillow-monger that I am, I needed to see if they had something else to add to it.  And here it is.

It's the square one, back middle.  The colors were perfect, complimenting the lumbar pillow in front of it as well as the drapes and faux fur blankets draped over the end of the bed. It's a linen fabric with a raised applique.  I just popped that baby on over a pillow I already had, zipped it up, and I was good to go.

Not the best quality picture, I know, but you get the idea. 

I've decided that keeping the bedding mostly white is the way to go because then you can add decorative pillow covers, shams and throws in whatever colors strike your fancy.  I find that my tastes change pretty much with the seasons.  
I also got another pillow cover that I absolutely love.

Isn't this one fabulous?  I love the combination of the chair graphic, script and postage-like stamps.  It's very "me" right now.  My other new one is behind it, turned over so that you can only see the blank linen side.  Reversible!

I also just placed this one over a pillow I already had and voila.

Which one do you like better?
So, what did they cost?  

They were on sale at 50% off {booyah!} for a whopping $3.49 and $3.99 each!  Even at full price they are SO reasonable, you can't afford not to look.  I can't say what styles will be at what store (and I did not like the covers I found at Hob Lob online) but hopefully your local store will have some you like.  
I didn't realize until I was writing this post that Marty had written another post about her new pillow covers, here.  While reading that post I realized I bought the same linen applique cover that Marty had!  What's that they say about great minds....?  She really is a fabulous decorating maven and you should stop on over at A Stroll Thru Life and check her out!

Kathy, Your bedroom is beautiful, and how did I miss those pillow covers at the hob lob? Keeping things so neat, especially with kids and people trekking through on a moments notice... The urns out front are so welcoming. I'm actually surprised that your home hasn't been snatched up...it is such a beautiful home, so lovingly decorated and your beautiful yard. Good luck my friend, can't wait to see the amazing things you'll accomplish in your new home. (though sad to see you go...). Love, Penny

You have a beautiful spacious bedroom! I love the pillow covers! What a fun way to change a room and you can't beat the price!Recently, I ran across their drapes and pillow covers. I had no idea they carried these for such a great price! Everything in your bedroom looks fabulous! I'll best Spring weather will bring you a buyer!

I didn't realize HL sold pillow covers either! I like the first one you showed. It looks very nice in the position you have it and goes great with the lumbar pillow- which I think looks awesome on the bed. You have a wonderful bedroom- so huge and spacious. Best wishes on an easy sale!

Pretty room! I also did not know HL sold the covers alone. Still trying to be good and stay out of that store.:-D

Great find and great prices, Kathleen! I had seen a few of their new pillow covers when I was walking through to get to the fabric area one day. I didn't stop because I need another pillow or cover like I need another hole in my head! I love how the style works in with a neutral d├ęcor. And, you can take it with you when you do move and use it in your new home!

Wow, what a great deal! I had no idea HL carried pillow covers, but will definitely check some out next time I'm there. Love both of them, but my favorite is the 1st one with the linen fabric. Thanks for sharing Kathleen.

I'd have hard time deciding which cover I liked better, guess it would depend on where I wanted to use the cover. I love changing out pillow covers for seasons, holidays or whenever I get on a roll of changing things. Have a special shelf in antique cupboard where my pillow covers are kept so I can find them when I get in a changing mood.
Wow your home is really nice, love your bedroom. We have a good sized room considering we have a single wide. Our house is 16x80 with a nice sized master bath also at end with our room. Good luck selling your house. Happy Spring days

Wow for that kind of price would be less expensive to buy than to make. I'll sure have to check at our HL in Grand Junction, CO. For some reason G.J. is slow to get new products, ideas. duh. Pretty irritating when bloggers are talking about great new stuff and we have to wait to see if we'll even have access at some point if ever.

I have that same pillow cover from Hobby Lobby. Love it! But congrats to you for getting the sale price!
