Spring is right around the corner and it has made people start thinking about their outdoor living spaces. One of my readers recently asked me if I had any ideas on what to do with her outdoor patio furniture cushions which are worn, falling apart and faded. She didn’t want to spend a lot of money and wasn’t keen on the idea of replacing all the cushions. There are 10 pieces of furniture in her set and a total of 20 cushions which by any calculation = MONEY!
Naturally my first instinct was to suggest new upholstered or slip-covered cushions or to paint her current cushions but neither of those would work given the condition of her cushions and her desire to save money. So, I did a little research and found some really great options on Pinterest that might work for her.
First I came across the idea of creating new cushions using shower curtains as the fabric. I thought this was a pretty brilliant idea and given the fact the most shower curtains are waterproof this would work great for her outdoor area. Here’s a look at some pretty fabulous cushions created by MomsbyHeart!.
Next I came across this idea of using standard bed pillows to create outdoor lounge cushions. Way cool and super easy.
