Re: Re-Decorating/Cushion Covers?
Going through my old posts earlier today looking for something I had commented on some while ago, I rediscovered this thread and realized I had never followed up with what we finally decided to do vis-a-vis a repair or replacement of our damaged salon cushion.
For those that don't care to go through the entire thread, our problem was a hole punched in a cushion cover in the salon. We debated various fixes including possibly having new covers made for at least the settee side, my wife's preferred fix (until she got the cost estimate!).
In the end, the fix proved to be having a small Scallop Shell embroidered over the hole in a complimentary color.
Following are snaps of the port side of our salon, the damage to the cushion that although quite small was also quite obvious and finally, the fix. Several people having seen this in "real time" have commented on how well it works and, at $12 USD was a heck of a lot less expensive than re-covering
PS: Mark--The mirror you asked about is right there on the bulkhead, eh?
