I ordered outdoor fabric to reupholster the cushions. The kind of fabric that you can pour a glass of red wine on and it rolls right off. I plan on putting this to test time and time again. I got a great deal at www.fashionfabrics.com for $6.75/yard. Can't beat that. We then painted, distressed and varnished the wood benches. I ordered a couple throw pillows from The Lacey Placey Etsy Shop. I also painted the chairs in "almost ebony" with a "witch hazel" distressed bottom. I have a feeling my kids will enjoy many cozy meals at this table for years to come. All for under $250.
