DIY extra long lumbar pillow

master bedroom inspiration

One quick little detail from the post yesterday on our bedroom.  I really wanted an extra long lumbar pillow a la Jenny Komenda, but couldn't find one with the right proportions.  Enter Ikea cushions.  I bought two of the fjadrar inner cushions ($6.99 apiece!) and cut the seam on one end of both pillows and then whipstitched them together by hand really quickly (just be careful or you will have feathers everywhere!).  Then I used this fabric on one side, and a less expensive coordinating yellow fabric on the back, with a zipper on the bottom.  Because the pillow is so long and thin (about 16" x 54"!), you can purchase half a yard of more expensive fabric, and get a really great pillow for under $50.  It's perfect on a king bed, and also a queen.  I added that flokati pillow for a little texture, but you could just leave it without for a more streamlined look.
