Affordable Patio Cushions

It is normally pretty dry here in eastern New Mexico,  but this year has been crazy!    It has rained 2-3 times a week for the last couple of months.
With all this rain,  I have had to rethink my use of cotton linens on the patio furniture.     This is how I have covered  the patio furniture for years but times are changin'!

I went to several stores and looked on the internet for patio cushions....what did I find ?    Outdoor patio cushions are really pricey....hummm who knew!

I wanted to share the best deals that I found in our area.....

I found the cushions at Big Lots for  $20 and the pillows at Walmart for $9.....everywhere else I looked they were at least double that amount.

I  decided to get an outdoor rug too and  found a 5x7 that I liked at Big Lots for $45.   

I am pleased with the new look and now I won't have to worry when it rains!

Kyleigh and I sat in the swing for a long time this morning.....aren't grands great!


  1. Wow, what gorgeous cushions and the price is amazing. Love your garden.

  2. Very nice! I am in need of cushions too, trying to decide if I want to make some.....or not! $20 seems like a very good price though. You have such a nice, cozy, inviting space!

  3. I've been looking for chaise cushions but the least expensive I have found are $50, I may need to find a Big Lots someplace! Grands are the greatest, I have all 3 of mine on Thursdays and absolutely Love spending time with them! Finally finished the pool wall (over on the blog) now I need a new project! Totally love your patio! Blessings, Cindy

  4. Hi Penny
    Love your new chair cushions, we have a big lots near us. Love that place. Enjoy your day today

  5. Everything looks wonderful Penny, but of course you decorated in my favorite color of green! Great prices too.
    :) I still bring my cushions under the patio cover when it rains. Rain isn't all that clean anymore...or so they say.
    So pretty as always!

  6. Penny,sua casa é um sonho encantado,parabéns.Beijo.

  7. Penny,
    Love the color of the cushions!! bought mine on CLearance last year for the front porch and the pillows too were also marked down. I love the rug. We got ours on the front porch in Big Lot's too!!I always wondered what you did with those linens when it rained. We are supposed to have showers for the next 3-4 days but we need it as our rain fall is several inches below normal.....

  8. I like the way you adapt! Your new cushions look great, and thanks for giving us your sources and prices. I love that. :)

  9. Beautiful seating area and it looks like you found some pretty good deals too!

  10. What a gorgeous patio! I love how inviting and relaxing it looks. We are hopefully buying a house that has a lot of outdoor space, including a gazebo and a patio area (I say hopefully - we're supposed to close on June 15) and cushions and pillows are up near the top of my list of things to be thinking about/getting. We found a lot of great outdoor pillows at Costco - 2 for $15. I think we'll be buying a few more. I need to find some good cushions mother-in-law has been looking to replace her patio cushions and hasn't been able to find anything she likes. I'll tell her to head to big lots ;)

    Stopping by from Sharefest!
