Moms always compliment my "creative" fireplace cushion when they come over to my house for the first time...so I thought I'd share the idea with all you bloggin' mamas out there!
I'm not a big fan of foam edges on the fireplace since there is still nothing cushioning the brick area on top. (The edges don't do much for the decor of the room either...the beauty of babyproofing.) So I thought, Wouldn't it be great if there was a fireplace cushion that could lay just across the top?
And if I were an accomplished seamstress, I could just stitch one up. No problem! The sad reality is that I cannot sew at all, hardly even a button. I need to learn one of these days.
So I came up with this idea while browsing through Target one day. The lounge chair (or chaise?) cushions were on summer clearance, and I thought, Hey, maybe this would work! I bought one (@ $20) with a neutral fabric, cut the strings off, and it fit perfectly! Only problem was it was slippin' and slidin' a bit so I thought, How about this? I cut a couple pieces of the plastic rug gripper material and put it underneath and VOILA!!! A non-slip, sew-free fireplace cushion! I even amazed myself with this one! :)
