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.
