So this is what we started with. $7.50 at Salvation Army and totally stuck in the 70's.
After some paint we were getting there.
Next I had the tackle the cushion (this is SCARY to me).
This was my first attempt at sewing a cushion.
Funny thing...apparently I gave myself waaay too much seam allowance
and the cushion turned out a bit bigger (okay a freaking lot) than the old one
So what's a girl to do...start over (never)...nope I just stuffed that puppy
with more foam inserts and poly fill until I could stuff no more, then sewed it shut
and called it a night. It's a bit puffier than the old one, but you know what
it's comfy as all get out!
The best thing - my husband looked at the cushion and actually said "wow, I'm impressed
how did you know how to do that?"
