If you read the blog earlier you know that I was trying to re-upholster the cushions on our wicker couch and couldn’t find our staple gun….then Hubby bought one and it was no good so I ended up ordering one from Amazon.
I immediately got to work on the cushions and in no time had them all staples and in place. It only took about 15 minutes.
I am happy with it.
So after five months of living here at this house Hubby and I finally sat out on the front porch on Thursday night. What a treat!
Can you believe that?? I couldn’t. It was wonderful. There was a breeze and being the porch faces to the east, no evening sun to make us hot. Trust me, we’ll be doing it more often. It was so nice after a long day at work.
I bought the couch for $25 back in August of 2012…back when we still had our beagle Gracie. It was blue then…..
I repainted it brown and redid the cushions.
Our farm dog Pepper totally ruined those cushions. Hubby tried to throw the whole thing out several times but I vetoed that idea…I sure am glad we kept it!!
I think I’ll keep my eyes open for a chair but for now I am happy with this. I did say something to Hubby about possibly making a pillow to go on the couch. His response, “What in the #%** do you want to do that for?” What is it about men and pillows??
Anyway…that’s the wicker story. I sure am glad I have the cushions done!! It was worth the work of re-upholstering them.
