Summer is here finally and there are lots of great summer nights to look forward to.
We love spending time on our patio:
-spend beautiful mornings with a refreshing coffee or just spend a breeze night with grilled goodies on the table.
Our current patio furniture is 5 years old…
Aha- you got this, right?
It’s faded, used, and not really my color style anymore, especially the colors.
Because we love the shape of our furniture set and beacuse they are so comfortable- I looked at places to replace the cushions only.
We really did not want to get rid of the whole set completely.
Since I couldn’t find the same shape cushions, I decided to upholster the ones we already have.
Let me tell ya, I saved a couple of hundreds right on spot!! Cushions are so expensive….and talk about getting a new patio set…Thanks, but NO thanks:-)
Below is a before picture:
As you can see the cushions were faded and very much used.
This year I am crazy about BLUE-GREEN-YELLOW colors…Love it! Couple posts before I talked about my painted FLOWER POT
where I used the same color combination.
I ordered 6 yards of fabric from Fabric.com
. I paid 8.98/yard of this pretty outdoor fabric.
THIS IS WHAT I USED FOR THIS PROJECT:
– old cushions
– new outdoor fabric
– staples gun
– wood panels that were cut to the cushion size ( at home depot)
1.I had someone at Home Depot to cut the wood panels for me
2. Then I measured and cut the fabric to cover the wood panels.
3.Used staples gun to cover the wood panels with my new fabric.
Measured cushions and cut fabric to cover cushions. Laid the already covered wood on the top of a cushion and used staples gun to attach fabric.
The back of the cushion is not SO pretty, but its absolutely not visible either.
I found this great big umbrella at IKEA
for only $25. Wow…I love that price! And its absolutely durable and good quality.
This umbrella was just perfect match for my green-blue and yellow combination.
Total cost for this project:
$48 – NEW OUTDOOR FABRIC
$25 – NEW UMBRELLA
$20 – WOOD PANELS
What do you think of our new upholstered Patio set? Have you upholstered any furniture yet?
