Default What to do with some foam?

I'm taking my couch and love seat apart and using the fabric to cover the path between rows in the vegetable garden.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do with the foam cushions?

Are they still in good shape? Is the foam still usable? You could always use it to stuff some throw pillows. Use denim (old levis if you want) and make some patchwork floor pillows for when the kids come to visit. Or, cover them with a faux leather type of covering (or some other weather proof material) and turn them into dog beds (if you have a dog).

I like your ideas gremlin. We don't have a dog anymore, but I could cover them and let the kids sit or play on them on the floor.

I'll try to post pictures, but for a while now I haven't been able to post any on this site or a couple other sites I visit.

I bought a program that I thought would help, but it didn't. So I need to look for another one.

Would it work to e-mail them to someone to post for you?

You could also break the foam down a little and use it for fill for stuffed animals. Just another thought.

gma2rjc have you tried Photobucket?
Easiest way of posting pics I've ever found.
Just upload your pictures. Move your cursor over the pic you want to upload. It will come up with 4 options under the picture. Left click on the bottom one 'IMG code'. Then right click in your post to paste and voila! Easy peasy.
