About This Project

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!

White Pine
Required Skill Level: 
Estimated Time Investment: 
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used: 
This was an indoor stain and we used a finish over it.
Estimated Cost: 


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).
