    I'm showing the before and after of my lawn furniture. These are the slipcovers I made with the clearance outdoor fabric I found online.I spent a little over $3 a yard.
    3 done...3 to go....
    See Chris...your little trick worked.

    How do you like the rose shrubin the arbor?

    Your arbor held up better to the giant rose bush than mine did! Mine tumbled down from the weight of the prolific climber.

    Nice chair covers!

    Good job. You can use those with pride and a big smile on your face.

    During the wind storms we had a couple weeks ago, I think the only reason we still have the arbor was because the rose bushes held it upright. and Thanks.

    I'm thinking your rosebush has outgrown the arbor? LOL! You must be feeding it Miracle Gro!

    Nic job on the slipcover!
