Very Simple No Sew Trick

10.09.2015

Today I thought I would share a Very Simple No Sew idea to cover up those plain chair cushions.You know, those plain cheap looking ones that come with some new chairs. I like to paint, but put a sewing machine in front of me and I break out in a sweat. So this idea popped in my head and it worked.

I have had these chairs for a few years and they have moved from room to room.

They came with this very plain white cushion in what feels like outdoor fabric.

So the idea came to me to see if any of my pillow covers would fit them and then I thought of these shams I had that would still be neutral and would also add some texture.

I tucked a cushion into each sham, tied the ties, folded the extra part under the cushion and bam....added texture and no more plain white cushions.


See, I told you it was very simple and no sewing involved.

The pair of chairs reside in my sun room which you can see more of here.

Wishing y'all a fabulous fall weekend!

  3. I can sew but I don't paint! Ha! We all have our talents. I had off-white slips made for our sunroom loveseat and for a chair similar to yours. Even though I sew, I didn't think I could tackle that, plus I wanted the piping, a little out of my league. Your sham idea works great!

  7. When you take time to think about it, it just always makes sense. Beautiful solution and a very cozy room.
    We are presently looking for at oval ottoman and I was wondering if your ottoman is a storage ottoman? When I see pictures on line, I can't tell if the top just sits on the bottom, or if there is some kind of a ledge inside the lid that keeps it from sliding off. Any and all information would be appreciated. Judy C

    1. Most of my coverlets are from Pottery Barn, but some are from other places, too. The red checked drapes are from countrycurtains.com. Thanks for reading!
