Covered Cushions-- done!

Well, I can cross off the cushion covers for the outdoor couch set off of my to do list.

I was all set to purchase outdoor fabric to cover the cushions but even at half price, I was looking at well over $200 bucks to cover them. So, I used the ol' stand-by.... canvas painters tarp. One $35 dollar tarp covered 9 cushions with left overs to boot!

I still need to paint the foot stool and the coffee table that match this set--- but for now--- here it is in all its glory.
I am so glad that huge project is behind me as I need to get ready for the show and sale I am participating in this Saturday. I started sewing a table cover that has rows and rows of ruffles on it. Well, ok to be truthful it only has one row of ruffles so far. Hmmmm do I really want to sit at my sewing machine and sew all that? Eh gawds... the thought of doing that makes me fussy!


  1. These turned out really really cute! I'm currently making a "Car" banner/bunting for Mr. Roman's 2nd bday party this Saturday.

  2. Very nice - you a great job on them.
    Good luck with the show - hope you sell out.

  3. Cheryl,

    I recently discovered your blog...and I love almost everything you do!
    Thanks for sharing and brightening my days.

  4. I can't believe how expensive fabric can get. Sometimes it's cheaper just to buy them already done :-( Anyway, your seat cushions look great. Glad you found an alternative. I love using canvas tarps too. I made a patio awning once out of one. Love it.

    Hugs and Kisses,

  5. Your cushions look wonderful Cheryl!! I know what you mean about the cushions ready made...It is just amazing how much they want for them. I have been toying with the idea of using drop cloths to do mine too. They would not fade and any color pillows would look great. Wonderful job! Blessings, Linda
