Wow, that was quick!

So those of you that have been reading for a while know that I have a hard time making decisions. And that may just be the understatement of the century!

But I must say, I’m quite proud of myself because I just ordered cushions for our outdoor seating set. Yes, already!!  I suppose it has something to do with the fact that we have a party coming up in 3 weeks, otherwise I may have hemmed and hawed a good ‘nother month at least.

After much surfing, I finally settled on cushions from LLBean of all places in this fabric:

Cheerful no?

I have to say that these chair pads from pottery barn came in a very close second, as they were so reasonably priced and had cute patterns and prints:

But with the exception of 4 ho hum colors, these aren’t made with sunbrella fabric, just some poly that is supposedly mildew and fade resistant. After the walmart seat cushion disaster I wasn’t taking any chances!

Speaking of which, I found a photo of my walmart seat cushions before they became bird toilet paper and almost cried, they look so pristine and spa-like:

Ah, white cushions RIP.

My only concern is that the cushions I ordered have ties and I have to use them sideways in our chairs to fit them properly…but I can just cut off the chair ties right? The walmart ones didn’t even have ties.  Also, I hope the striped pattern isn’t TOO cheerful. I’ll keep you posted!

  1. I think they will look great sideways… and the stripes will look funky and different going sideways, too! I think it will add a really cool level to the chairs.


  2. Jennifer, I hope you are right.. I’m such a dolt I didn’t even THINK about the fact that the stripes would be going the wrong way..doH! Blame it on pregnancy brain :)
