We LOVE the outdoors. Which means that Spring and Summer are the seasons for us! And if you’ve learned anything from this blog, hopefully you know how much I (JZ) love to decorate with bright, fun colors. So when it was time to replace the lounge cushions around the pool, that meant that new pillows were in order!
With trying to stay home as much as possible (because pandemic), an eternal hunt for the right outdoor pillows was out of the question. However, I knew that we could make some with just a few materials and a couple of hours on hand (which we seem to have a lot since we’re not really going anywhere these days).
I knew that I wanted a fun print to go with the cushions, but since these are going to be outdoors, they also had to be removable, washable and waterproofed. With a little bit of research, some Amazon ordering and some help with D on the measuring, we got these done in no time. And now, the patio is coming together!!
