I started with the simple white outdoor sofa, then the factory cart table, adirondack stool, and 2 simple outdoor lounge chairs. Wow! This was my first adventure making furniture. All in all it took me about a month to make everything in my spare time. I made a few mistakes along the way, all part of the learning curve. But definitely learned so much from this site. I am forever grateful to you, Ana.
Built from Plan(s)
Total cost for all about $150 for all 5 pieces of furniture
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Pine (not treated)
I primed and painted with exterior latex (3 coats). All the furniture is on a covered back deck. I did not use cedar or any other better suited outdoor wood due to cost and the fact that all the furniture is well protected from the elements. I made the cushions for the sofa, but bought the chair cushions from Home Decorators.
