Give new life to your RV cushions with a simple DIY that requires minimal sewing skills.
Here is the before photo and how our dinette cushions looked prior to our DIY.
And here's how the dinette cushions look now!
This is a relatively easy DIY and makes such a difference to your space. Here is how we got started.

Remove your RV cushions and turn them over to the back side. Remove all staples from the plywood (this can take a little while) Once staples are pulled off of the back over, remove the fabric and discard the fabric.

The original foam on the cushions was still in great shape, so I removed all of the old chenille fabric and covered the original foam with a layer of batting. Then, I cut out a rectangular piece of fabric, sewed darts in all of the corners, and stapled it over the foam and onto the plywood backing. I covered the back with the original seats’ backing fabric as it was still in good shape.
