Office Space Reveal: DIY Pillow & Office Chair Makeover #softside

This is a fun, DIY sponsored post written in behalf of Downy. All content, images and opinions are my own.

I have my little own office space in the living room because this is the place where my little family gathers. I want to be working on a clean space where I’m able to watch my little girl while she plays. Even though my office space is very small, I still want to feel comfortable in an inspired space. I don’t have a comfortable office desk chair so with the help of Downy I challenged myself to create a quick DIY project by making my existing office chair more comfortable and softer.

I browsed at JoANN Fabric Store to purchase a black and white fabric that is eye catching to make a soft pillow for my office chair. I purchased a yard of my favorite fabric, washed it and used Downy to softened and bring a fresh scent in my office space.

So what is the deal with Downy and this project? Downy, is my favorite fabric softener ever since I remember my mom softening my clothes with Downy. This fall, Downy wants to help out and challenge people bring out a #softside to other aspects in life as well by creating a project that can bring out softness; for example softening a space in your home by changing decor and bring in more light. How fun is that?!
