What materials did you use? Chenille, corded trim with taping, cotton lining for a bit more structure, pillow stuffing and the old backs of the original back pillows and the zippers of the original back pillows and cushions.

What are you most proud of? The old and new blend beautifully together and the cushion corners match perfectly:)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? As always check for accuracy! If the corners don't match up on the bottom cushions the whole look will be affected. Use a very narrow zipper foot and incorporate enough seam allowance to use it for the piping as well- this makes the pattern match perfect as the fabric was not cut and resewn.

This is gorgeous! The work on your cushions is quite impressive.
