It seems we sort of skipped spring and have jumped right into summer this week. Thankfully Jamie thought way ahead (probably back in February when we had similar weather for a brief period) and realized she had to replace her cushions on her backyard porch. You know when they get to the point where you just don’t want to sit on them anymore and something has to be done. They looked a little greener, felt dingy and the cushions were limp.
She looked at store-bought cushions, but because of the unique shape of her furniture, she couldn’t find anything that fit perfectly and would hold up in the elements on her back porch. She opted for custom-made cushions so she could choose exactly what she wanted in a quality high performance fabric.
Jamie, with the help of her husband (yay, husband!), picked a Sunbrella solid fabric in Echo Dune for one side of her cushions and a stripe Cove Cameo for the other side to reconstruct their cushions. She also picked a solid melon fabric to pull out the tiny stripe in the Cove Cameo to use as throw pillows.
The foam in the core of the seats that had completely compressed. New layers of an outdoor Nu-Foam perked them right up.
With the dual sided cushions, Jamie has options. She can have solid chairs and a stripe loveseat or vise versa. The pop of Melon on the reverse of the throw pillows was a great choice for a burst of color in the calming taupe and peach combination she picked. What a difference! With eighties and nineties expected for this week (and with the pollen season done) Jamie and her husband can now really enjoy sitting on their old furniture with NEW cushions.
More cushions coming!!
