Of all the items that take a beating outside, pillows may be the most vulnerable. Unless pillows are made from a truly weatherproof material, they tend to get dirty, soggy, and smelly after sitting outside for a season or two. To avoid that, create long-lasting outdoor pillows using an outdoor tablecloth. Simply cut square pieces of tablecloth made with indoor/outdoor fabric and sew together with plastic grocery-store bags stuffed inside, as recommended by the blog 2IY. They resulting pillows are cheap and stylish additions for any chair or chaise seat.
