Faster... your salon looks great... although looking at your cushions they don't have many curves and look square, mine had many curves and angles... was a bear but they turned out great... +1 on the velcro.... makes them easy to work with and they'll last forever... they are also adjustable to remove wrinkles in the fabric... my cushions are very tight without looseness or wrinkles. Everyone comments on how great they look!
Hi Guitarguy,

Do you have pics of your settees? I would love to see them. How do you put the foam in sterilization? That stumped me. Yes, Faster's salon looks very nice. Love the color of their settees and was thinking of going that color as well, but we're going for white. We need to lighten up our salon as it seems kinda' dark in there. Our cushions are square, too. Is there a way to make them curved? I don't know how to do that. Would like to see how you did that trick with the velcro. Are you close by Kemah, TX? Probably not, but thought I'd ask.

Thanks for the feedback.
