Restoring a Cushion

DIY Club

Patio chairs need some help over time especially with wear and tear use, so instead of throwing the chairs out I restored them using some fabric from Hobby Lobby. Unscrew the cushion (if applicable) and using a staple gun, staple the fabric onto the cushion.  Trim the excess fabric and staple down any loose ends (so it doesn’t hang). I did this freehand with no measurements with the fabric. Just cut a bit extra so you have enough room to staple on. Be sure to “tug” the fabric for a smooth fit before each staple. Now you have a “new” chair.

Hope you enjoy this summer redo and have a great Memorial Day weekend.

    The chairs are my boyfriends and if I recall he had them in the downstairs garage for a bit. They’ve seen a lot of use lol. I’m thinking of doing the whole patio in shades of blue now
