I love to sew and create things but also love to be outside working in my gardens and yard. We’ve had a LOT of rain in the past month and I have been forced to stay indoors. So I look at it as an opportunity and went back to updating my outdoor furniture that I started on last year. Here’s the post that references the original changes: http://ktgreendesign.com/a-finished-project/
The next step in the project was to recover the two cushioned dining chairs. I bought good-quality chairs thinking that they’d last longer, but the upholstery on them turned nasty right away. Since the covers couldn’t be removed, I cleaned them with a scrub brush and oxi-clean. When they were hopelessly pilled and not coming clean I decided something had to be done. So I recovered the cushions with this cute chevron fabric that matches the sofa and chair. It’s a fabric from Premier Prints that I bought from fabric.com. The covers on all of the furniture is removable since I used velcro on the cushions so I can wash them whenever necessary. Accidents happen! Especially when those grandkids visit!
While I’m done with the screened room, we have a huge deck that covers the entire back of our house. There is a little alcove by our bedroom that has some furniture that is crying for new cushions. Will I ever be done? Hopefully not!
