Default 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


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


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!
