Old patio seat covers as good as new in dazzling blue
The cushions on an old patio lounge suite got a cool new look thanks to a little
paint and a lot of enthusiasm.
DIY enthusiast Meggan Lapham wanted to inject new life into the family’s old patio lounge suite; over time, the cushion seat covers had become dull and faded. Her husband Ernest tried dyeing the covers but that wasn’t a success.
Meggan had already completed a few projects using Annie Sloan paint and when she heard that it could just as easily be applied to fabric, she immediately set about testing the theory – with very pleasing results! “It’s so easy and so much fun – best of all, you don’t have to be a professional to get it right. I’d recommend this project to anyone who enjoys DIY home improvements,” she says.
These old cushion covers look as good as new after being treated to a lick of Annie Sloan paint.
