Snow Damage Redeck

The snow damaged many things about the yard. A five year old Japanese maple just starting to grow to be a beautiful tree snapped off at the top. Four foot hollies were bunny munched. The snow covered them completely such that only the tops rose above it. The bunnies could easily reach them and had a feast! The plants will grow back, but other things need more direct intervention.
We have a bench with a beautiful back. The original cushions were never wonderful. After the weight of snow, and summer sun damage, the cushions were torn and needing replacement. A year ago, I set up the mood board for the plan to rejuvenate the deck. The local home improvement store now stocks tall chair cushions which are close to the plan.

Be sure to head back to Susan's for more Metamorphosis Monday transformations!

Love your new cushions! Always love stripes.
BTW, think you may have linked to TT instead of Met Monday...stop back by and link up to MM if you haven't already. :-)

Thanks so much for looking at the dining room revamp.
I loved the red room, and I love this new room just as much.
Isn't it great that life is long enough to experience so many great colors!
