I loved our Lowe’s outdoor set so much that I wanted to protect the cushions from rain, animal foot prints and the falling leaves from the willow tree (which I’ve notice, tends to stain fabrics.) When you have outdoor furniture – especially sets that have cushions, I’ve come to the realization it’s almost necessary to invest in covers. If you have outdoor cushions, you may be familiar with the “rain run” – when it starts to rain and your cushions are out. Although it’s outdoor fabric, cushions do tend to soak up water. Making for soggy bums if you sit on them too soon.
To avoid that “rain run” that I was doing all to often, my Mother suggested I just bite the bullet and invest in covers. She was so right. I found a brand – Duck Covers, that was appealing for both the style and, price point. At $35 per cover (for the size I needed) they are a great price point and – work. I love, love them. By the way, I didn’t style the shots (obviously) but you can see the debris that collects just over a few days – which is why we actually built a deck back here as grass wouldn’t grow. But that’s another post coming soon.
