My $5 Pillows
These chairs were ugly.
I found them on the side of the street. The poor things were abandoned and had no home. They needed a little bit of tender loving care, a nice warm bath and a delicious coat of paint. I had visions of a new life’s purpose that included lounging under the stars.
An Adirondack Makeover
So I got out my spray paint and gave them a makeover.
And boy was that an improvement! I think I actually heard a sigh of relief escape from between the boards.
But, that’s not the best part of this story! Then I had a fun and exciting day of shopping with MGC (that’s the initials of my mom-in-love for those new to the blog) and she asked me if I’d seen the $5 pillows at Wal-Mart. We stopped by her neighborhood store and they had a great selection. I bought two.

Then I got home with them and loved them so much, I needed more. So, I went to my neighborhood store to see if they had them too, and lo and behold they had a different selection, but the same price. I bought 5 more! So I got 7 pillows for $35.
Don’t you think the chairs seem to sit a little straighter now. Their confidence is soaring! It’s amazing what a new pillow will do for a chair!
The pillows are made of outdoor fabric, so I’m hoping they last through rain, sun and possible sleet. But just in case they might not, I’m on the hunt for a new basket to store them in when we aren’t lounging under the stars. I’m hoping to find a sturdy one to store my $5 pillows for less than $35! Let me know if you see one…. 😉
