Outdoor furniture just happens to be one of those things I have a hard time investing in fully. It’s only useful about 5 months of the year up here in NY, it’s expensive, and a lot of it really isn’t my style. I weighed the pros and cons of purchasing a set of outdoor chair cushions for the deck furniture that I recently painted, and here’s the thing:
- $$$ (for ones that I really liked)
- The affordable options were often on back order or low in stock, which limited my options since I definitely needed a set of 4
- The colors were often wrong. Or the patterns would have competed with the design that flows in the yellow umbrella.
So, like any crafty person would do, I tried to make my own. You can see more about the rationale, materials, and the end result in today’s post on DIY Network.
