Double Lounger

Submitted by Celeste808 on Sun, 05/19/2013 - 07:47

Super easy project! Love it and made it in a weekend (taking breaks of course).

Did paint all the pieces before assembly to make it easier, and added little pieces to the sides to make it resemble the West Elm Double lounger.

Total cost for the wood and hinges was $50! Compared to buying it at $549... Im in love with what I made! Thanks again Ana for an amazing plan.

Now to work on the cushion

Want to build one of these for sure. Question, especially since it's double width.........will those 1" width legs hold all of that weight? They look so thin.

I thought so too! But its really solid. Looking at the West Elm version it has the same size legs. I might beef them up though just to give me more piece of mind! But so far so good.

Cool, but then I thought the West Elm version's looked so thin, too, lol! When we built the outdoor sectional, we used 2x4s because several people we know, well let's just say extra support was needed! Be sure to post the pics of it with the cushion. Will you be making it?
