Patio furniture revamp

We got new furniture for our patio this spring, but struggled to find what we wanted! Eventually we settled for a Martha Stewart Living set from Home Depot, the frames were awesome but I didn’t like the fabric at all so we knew right away it was going to be a total recover job. (in the picture it doesn’t look too bad, but in real life it was a rough, brown, green, and cream polyester fabric that made my hand go uuughhh!)

I got the red and white outdoor fabric for $7 a yard from fabric.com, along with the outdoor fabric for the little pillows. The white floral outdoor fabric was from Hancock fabrics, and I think it was 50% off of $14.99 a yard

The lady who cut my fabric at Hancock’s asked Paul (my husband) if he was really going to let me use it! What the heck, we both thought it was awesome! I made slip covers for the bottom cushions and then just stole the stuffing out of the original cushions for the backs.

The pillow for the love seat is stuffed with a .99 cent bed pillow from IKEA. We love how these turned out! The whole porch was a redo this spring, so later I will probably blog about the painting/staining project with before and after pictures of the deck!

    I am visiting from “Strut Your Stuff Thursday”. I don’t know why that lady at Hancock’s was even questioning your choice of fabric. I absolutely love it! Obviously, she didn’t know what she was talking about because it turned out great! I am also a new follower of your blog.
