Outdoor Living Project

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!

Love these chairs!

Added another pillow to the sofa. It just needed a little more padding for my reading pleasure!

Another cute little pillow for this chair.  See that sweet little flamingo table? My friend Donna did that mosaic. And she doesn’t do mosaics anymore. So sad. She was so talented. And I need more mosaics!

Here’s the entire set!

This is Maggie’s favorite spot!

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!
