Wow these doily stenciled pillows are such a super great idea and especially if you like the look of lace. If you did not know they were painted on then you would swear it was real. So easy and inexpensive to make just some doily's,paint and a foam brush and some of your pillows and transform them old pillows into something new. I can see this technique being used on many different things even some wood projects. Very simple tutorial and great idea.
