Revive outdoor seating

Hi everyone!

Happy Sunday!

A while back we built a sitting corner on our deck using reclaimed wood. I wanted to add some much needed cushions and pillows by utilizing chaise lounge cushions that I had that were no longer being used.

I wanted to give these blah cushions some new life!img_4340.jpg

First, I had my boys help stain the reclaimed wood. Here we see them hard at work 🙂

The stain gave the reclaimed wood a nice gloss and clean finish.IMG_4335

Seeing that I didn’t have enough chaise lounge cushions for both the bottom and back of the sitting area, I decided to purchase cushions for the bottom and utilize the lounge cushions for the back. Since the bottom cushions were solid colors, I bought a floral pattern to reupholster the lounge cushions for the backs. To complete the project, I wanted to add some pillows. I already had several outdoor pillows but they all had different patterns and in order to obtain a more cohesive look, I reupholstered the pillows with the same fabric.

The end result brought life into my otherwise bland sitting area 😉


But just when I thought I was done, I realized I could reupholster the back cushions of my outdoor swing to tie everything together.


We spend a lot of time in our backyard and now we have the added comfort of these freshened up sitting areas 🙂 Hope you are enjoying your outdoor living area too!

Thank you for stopping by!

Best wishes,
