Recovered cushions on newly painted heirloom wicker chairs

Posted By on July 25, 2017


Last month I spent quite a bit of time prepping and painting the wicker chairs passed down from generation to generation (see post).  This past weekend I used recovering and adding filler to the old cushions as an opportunity to learn a little bit more about sewing — with Brenda‘s Sailrite machine. I’ve tackled a few projects with some success so far, but curtains, generator covers and pool cover repairs are hardly a cushion requiring me to make piping and install hidden zippers. Even with all the many "learning mistakes," I’m pleased with the result (even got a complement from Brenda saying how much her mother (photo) would have love them … and she doesn’t hand them out all that easily!)
