I had been hunting for cushions for the bench we'd made that would be firm and thick and resilient. The best prices I could find for a good quality foam were really astronomical (for me) and with cover, I was looking at over $500 which was too, too much. So I procrastinated doing anything until one day, at a moving sale, I found four mighty down sofa cushions wrapped in high quality foam and in cotton duck zippered covers that just so happened to fit the dimensions of the bench perfectly. I bought those plus a set of Euro square pillows for $50. Then I found a bolt of fabric at the local salvage store for $6 and some curtains at another yard sale for $2.
Then I found a bolt of fabric at the local salvage store for $6, some curtains at another yard sale for $2 and a happy heavy striped cotton rug at yet another yard sale for $3.
Ah.... Now that's what I'm talking about!
