Painted Cabana Striped Pillows {Incredibly Easy ~ No Sew}

I've been eyeing up a few pillows for my front porch rocker ever since the warm weather decided to appear and stick around. I've seen many that I have loved but I can't seem to see spending anywhere from $30-$90 for a set of three pillows, especially when they most likely will need to be replaced again next year.
