Outdoor Space


before;  Nothing special, but I like it!  However, it's showing its age.



during;  I purchased a yard of fabric and recovered the front of the cushions using my glue gun.



after;  An updated space where we can enjoy outdoor activities with family and friends!

What's this. I can sew with my glue gun? Great idea and a whole lot easier!

Hello from a fellow fabric gluer! I never sew anything (no sewing machine!). Did you buy your tablecloth? Is your table square? Great fabric choice and a charming space!
