Pillow Fabric

I wanted to recover my outdoor pillows this year because I was getting bored to death by the old fabric.

This is the before fabric, which I believe was from Home Depot,

and this is the after.

I bought the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics from their 45″ home decor fabric instead of their outdoor fabric selection.

Black doesn’t necessarily shout summer to me, but I liked the vintage look of it and none of their outdoor fabric was speaking to me. I figure if the fabric only lasts one year outside, then I just get to pick out new fabric next year. An added plus is that it was 1/2 the price of the outdoor fabric.

BTW, the chairs are my faux wicker chairs that I bought at Big Lots a few years ago. Maybe weather-resistant is a more becoming term for them.

Speaking of Big Lots, I found this somewhat nautical looking lantern there today. Originally $7.00, but on sale this week for $5.00.

It’s made for citronella candles, but you could use any type of candles with it.

And for $5.00, I couldn’t leave it there.

I love me some Big Lots.

    Wow – I love the new fabric you used to redo your pillows! What a difference a change of fabric can make!
    And I love that little red chair and all the beautiful plants surrounding it!

    The pillow turned out great….when I was a little girl my grandma had an old beat up wicker couch on her porch and guess what… it was black! I kind of like the black look….I have two white real wicker rockers I got at World Market for Mother’s Day a few years ago, totally dried out, pieces broken everywhere and can’t repair….next time I m going for the resin- faux look too! Yours look brand new! :)

    Wow does this fabric pop!!! I love it Pam!
    Great choice. Who cares if it’s not outdoor if you are like me you will probably tire of the pattern before it wears out. I love it on your set. Great choice!!!

    What a great fabric choice! As long as your pillows don’t get too much sun or moisture, that fabric might last longer than you think! I haven’t been to Big Lots in awhile…looks like I need to stop in again! Thanks for sharing your lovely porch!

    OH- I absolutely LOVE that fabric. I think it is fresh and pretty and looks like summer to me! And that lantern is really cute. I wouldn’t have left it there either. xo Diana

    Pam, I love the fabric and the black is gorgeous in it. I also love Big Lots. This week I bought “Core” bamboo products there that are sold on One Kings Lane. I also bought three more bird feeders as if I need more! I wish we could shop there together cause I go by myself. hugs♥O
