Seat Cushions

Things have been busy around here and this summer is just flying by. We haven’t been able to keep up with our projects the way we’d like to, but curiously enough my husband still finds time to hit up his weekly estate sales. He’s scored more vintage Tootsie Toys, classic handyman books, and a couple of midcentury planters (I swear we need to have another yard sale). He also picked a few old seat cushions that were perfect forย tossing on the floor or on an uncomfortable chair.

Except, the cushions weren’t cushioning anymore.

We sent hazmat in to rid these guys of their gnarly innards, gave the skins a good wash and went to work on restuffing them with firm foam.

This was a quick and easy project. And I’m happy for some awesome Hollywood Bowl cushions!

(Why, yes, that is a sharpie mark on the orange cushion ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ).

The hubs and I just celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary and I think it was just as hot and humid as the day we got married.
