This was our first attempt ever at making a piece of furniture. We rented the miter saw and bought a kreg jig. My husband did the research after we discovered how grossly expensive attractive patio furniture is. We bought inexpensive white pine and used stain and I sewed the cushions myself. We are hitting a snag there as we've discovered that the high density foam for the inside is super expensive too! Right now I have it stuffed with a combo of some foam padding and batting. I figure if we stuff it enough it will last a while. Overall I am very happy and proud to say we made this!
Nice build and pretty cushions! Foam is too expensive, I agree. I think the best thing is to look online or wait until you can get JoAnn Fabrics 40 or 50% coupons (I forget which is more common).
It's finally here! Get all the details on my first book!
