Many of us procrastinate too often and, at times, get caught not completing what we need to do when we need to do it. This article is a heads-up to those who wish to mark a notch in the post and say I did it; I am done. I ordered my replacement cushions. Then, move on to other, more important things.
Most of us know if we need replacement cushions, and we all say I’ll do that next spring. I don’t need to order them now. Well, that’s almost true. The fact is that replacement cushions take time to make and ship, so you need to prepare ahead of time. Ordering in February and March will ensure the May arrival of cushions, even from the dealers that take a long time to complete orders.
This week’s post is primarily a nudge for you to look out for your patio cushions and take inventory of what cushions you have and the ones you need to replace.
Consider the following when evaluating your old cushions:
- Fabric Color
- Fabric Style
Evaluate the above conditions and determine if any of these factors are something you consider worth replacing some or all of your cushions for.
Having identified the need to replace cushions, you will need to measure and possibly even make templates to have new cushions made. You will need to find a cushion supplier, review their fabrics and prices, and then place an order.
For right now, simply take note of what cushions you have and which ones need to be replaced. Identify a color scheme. Next week we will discuss what you need to do in more detail if you plan to order new cushions and the timing associated with placing an order.
