Revamp your Deck with new cushions #homedecor #staging #outdoor

This year, we want to spend much more time outside enjoying our backyard. My husband suggested that our patio furniture was looking a little tired...what do you think?


I went in search of new cushions online, and wasn't finding exactly what we were looking for. We wanted something bold and fun, a great pattern, but something that would last us a while. That's when we found JD Designs & Interior Decor in London, Ontario!

Working with Dawn Marie was fantastic. She sent me photos of the possible fabrics while she was out scouting, was helpful with the delivery process (delivering 14 cushions to be recovered at 8 months pregnant is no easy feat!) and created beautiful new cushions for our patio furniture!

 
My husband sprayed our existing furniture with Tremclad rust spray paint in a flat black, and we added a brand new 6'x9' rectangular umbrella to ensure that everyone sitting at the table gets covered from the sun.

Dawn Marie even created a beautiful pillow out of the excess fabric!


I have a feeling that pillow will make its way up to the nursery soon as it goes with the color palette, and would be really pretty in my antique rocking chair!

Dawn Marie created these cushions and the pillow from scratch, and from fabrics that won't fade. So worth the investment, especially when you are getting exactly what you want for your patio!

The next steps for the deck? Ideally, I'd like to stain it or put a clear coat on the wood, but for now, I think some planters with tall grasses will be the perfect touch!
