Before and after........

I posted the photo below the other day of the furniture on our front porch.  As you can see on the right hand chair cushion it has been eaten by something.  Also the fabric was awfully faded with the sun.  I think this set is 5 years old now.  Luckily for me our daughter-in-law gave me some left over fabric from a project at their house.  So I was able to make new cushion covers for them.

 Here is the after photo.  It's such a bright and summery fabric.  I decided to do the sides of the chair cushions in the plain blue as then I didn't have to fiddle around trying to match the stripes up.


Best thing about this project all it cost me was my time.  Now if it would only stop raining.

Wow! Really lovely, Gill! The colours are fantastic - what a difference it makes to the look of the furniture. xx

Love the look of the new cushion cover Gill. Great contrast with the navy as well - especially the reverse side of the small cushions.

Makes it look like a brand new setting. Looks good!
