Friday Finds: Antique Hand Knotted Persian Carpet Pillow Cover by TheCottageWorkroom

IMG_3643_resize
Dianne of TheCottageWorkroom obviously has a great eye for spotting materials that can be upcycled into fantastic covers! She saw an antique persian rug that was heavily damaged at an auction, but knew that she could turn it into a gem. After painstakingly cleaning it and using the undamaged bit, this is what she came up with- a striking cushion cover with rich reds, yellow, green and brown. Check out her shop for more interesting designs that include modern pieces as well.
