Marine grade material, which is weather resistant, was out of the question...too expensive. But I needed something hardwaring, as it is outside (although protected), it will be exposed to some weather elements. I have covered a couch using drop sheet material (as seen in this project). So I was willing to have a go my self, just I lacked this inspiration. Then one day when I was getting out of the car I noticed the orange and pink cushions ('cause I had them in the garage). I had bought them for $5 each several months ago at Target - not because I liked the colours, but because they were cheap inserts. They were in the garage, because I never managed to bring them inside.
Anyhoo, I threw them against the couch, and BINGO they looked great, and then I remembered I had some left over drop cloth, and the colour of the drop sheet looked good as well. And out came the sewing machine.
