Making your own seat cushions? Make sure to add a matching footstool! #Decor & Decorating#chairs#outdoor living September 5 | Megan Finley meggyfin This photo (which I found nestled in an Airbnb listing for a funky cabin in Idyllwild, CA) may just give you some inspiration for pimping out your deck chairs. If you're thinking about making your own custom seat cushions, think about buying extra fabric (I'm REALLY digging the fabric used on these) and some foam, or other stuffing materials, and create a matching foot rest! This is a total deck-lounging upgrade. Has anyone attempted to make one of these puffy foot stools? Any tips for the Homies? Join our community!

I'm going to be attempting a pallet sofa with cushions, so I guess I need to start thinking about fabrics. Reply I saw a tutorial recently that suggested that for making a footstool/poof thing you can actually use old rolled up blankets or duvets from the thrift store for filling, instead of spending lots of money on upholstery foam. I need to try this.

It looks cheap and easy! 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
