Glider Replacement Cushions

 

I have a metal glider that we decided to take to the lake.   For long term sitting we decided to get some glider replacement cushions for it. Since the glider and bench have similar dimensions, I looked there.  The two sided version has a striped pattern on one side and a solid color pattern on the other side.  This is the cushion that we got and what I will be talking about in this article.

Solid side of replacement cushionWhat will this cushion work for

 

This first thing you need to do is measure the size of the seating area on your bench or glider.  Mine was 18 inches deep, 39 inches wide, the thickness of the cushion will be the thing that will give you the most comfort.  The second item that will need to be looked at before shopping is colors that will work.  The lady of the house will be the best at this as most guys just get something that will be comfortable.

I did not want to spend a lot of money, under $25, so I went to the local hardware superstores, they wanted about $50 for the cheapest ones and they did not have any color that would make sense.  I ended up at Walmart and they had a tan that would match my decor needs very well.  The length is a little long, I just pulled it through the arms to help hold it in place.

The cushion I purchased was 46 inches wide, 17 inches deep and 3 inches thick.  It was a little too wide and I wondered how this would fit. When I put it on the glider the ends went through the arms just enough to hold it in place.  The tie backs were not needed.  It was very comfortable to sit in and watch the nature around us.

This cushion will work well for me, if you would like to see some of my other bench or glider cushions go to my article here.

Glider replacement cushionCare of your bench cushion

 

Simple wet rag will clean up most spills.  Do not use any chemicals as it will ruin the color.

I would recommend to have some storage area for the cushion when not in use.  I have some storage options in this post here.

At 3 inches thick it will not dry quickly for use after a rain.

Pros

Conclusion

 

I went to look at outdoor glider replacement cushions, I ended up with bench cushions instead.  They work the same, I just think the benches are a little wider.  This cushion will have two different colors, a solid on one side and striped on the other.  They are very comfortable for long term sitting.
