Cushion covers
I had some (what used to be) lovely box cushions. But I had left them outside on the Cape Cod chairs for about 18 months! Not surprisingly they were terribly grubby. I washed them a couple of weeks ago and amazingly they came up pretty well, unfortunately all the scrubbing made some of the buttons pop, but I put them back outside anyway. Now that they were lovely and clean the cats thought that they would be a rather nice place to sleep and...oh be sick on! ew!
I resigned myself to washing them again, but it was such a guddle ( pain in the behind, pest etc) last time, and I did rather fancy some ticking covers, that I decided to just go and get some fabric and make removable covers.
So here they are!
I'm pleased with them, not least because if the cats decide to have a wee 'moment' on them again they are very easily washed!

  1. Glad Im not the only one with cats like that, one of mine vomited on a book that I had borrowed from my neighbour! I had to replace the rotten thing.

  3. Elegant, I love them! I'm quite glad to be animal-less for a bit lol, though this place cries out for an animal - apart from the deer and coyote, that is!

  5. Oh, just lovely!! Ticking stripes is one of my favorite patterns. I SO enjoy primitives & antiques, so it goes along w/it all. Enjoy your 'new' cushions!

  6. They look lovely! Sometimes you just have to embrace change and cat vomit is probably one of those times.

  7. Wow--these look amazing. I love that the chairs are painted that color, as it's one of my favorite colors. Very pretty. And the previous pictures of the peacocks looked so neat. :)
