I sanded down the table and chairs, making sure to go with the grain, until the wood was smooth. Next, I used a paint brush to apply the cedar colored stain. The brand I used was a stain and sealant in one so I didn't have to finish the surface with any additional product.
I found these seat cushions for $9 a piece at Walmart, and they match our outdoor furniture's accent pillows. (Score!) I like how the bright pillows tie everything together.
After purchasing the pillows, sand paper, paint brush, and stain, I only spent around $30. I had a lot of fun with this inexpensive afternoon project!
