Vinyl Applique for Vinyl Mudroom Bench Cushion?

Good Questions

Q: I recently purchased a simple bench/shoe rack for the little mudroom we have. It is less than a foot in depth — perfect for us. Problem is, the cushion is covered in a bland off-white vinyl, but my son is allergic to dust and dust mites so I don't want to use a fabric covering. What can I do to dress it up a little? Should I try vinyl wall decals? I'm worried that they won't stay in place, since we'll be sitting on the bench a lot. Any other ideas? Many thanks.
