Outdoor Couch Makeover

I mentioned yesterday that I had been working on recovering a couch and making pillows for my cousin over the last few weeks.

So here's the before:

I didn't get to take a pic of the cushion on the couch because she dropped it off at my house....

Here's the after:

I think it turned out great!  And she loved it.  You can find the pillow tutorial here.  I also made some drapes for her.  I have got pics and a tutorial coming in the next couple of days.
