DIY cushions for patio furniture. Super easy. I didn't have old cushions to cover so I used layers of cheap bed padding foam wrapped in batting. Look here for how to do boxed corners that are not covered well http://craftapple.wordpress.com/2007/09/01/sewing-tip-squarely-boxing-those-corners/
Patio pick me- ups - On the bench Weatherproof outdoor furniture is expensive, so if you're renovating a patio or building a wall adjacent to one; it's a good idea to build in a bench or a seat. With a couple of comfortable seat cushions and a selection of scatters it's as comfortable as furniture - at a fraction of the price.
