    ever thought of making seating coushion for picnic tables ???

    My green recycle picnic table sitting cushions.

    get 2-crib bumper pads what ever color doesn't matter.

    dbl the padding and cut the length needed for the picnic

    seating.

    Grab a pair of heavy duty curtains and used each panel
    of the curtains to cover the crib pads and tied them to the

    picnic table sitting area. a little bit more comfy for my

    behind.

    thrift store items : cost of $4.00 for the curtains and

    the 2--bumper pads for the crib.

    That's a good idea Fred Singer! My dad had about 10 boat seat type cushions stored. The only thing I can imagine him doing with them was to attache them to picnic benches for comfortable seating. Maybe folks could find those at garage sales, too. Picnic benches just aren't comfortable!

    We have a breakfast nook with a picnic type table and bench. I've been trying to figure out for 7 yrs how to make AFFORDABLE cushions!!! Thank you for the idea!
