Chairs and bar for our patio

Please don't look at the mess!
I built few furnitures for our patio and I am very happy with the result.
I modified the plan of the chair to make a loveseat.
It was rather easy as construction. By making the bar, I made an error of measure for the tray, I had to begin again. I then transformed the too big tray into coffee table by adding feet.I have to sand and paint it.
Now I am going to put a little of order.

Estimated Cost
200 euros
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Finish Used
2 coats of White acrylic paint for the chairs and the cart and purple acrylic paint with 2 coats of varnish for the tray.

Did you reinforce love seat in any way or just double all the measurements ?? How sturdy is it. I already made chair. Can't find plans for loveseat

I only doubled all measurements of the chair but I used thicker boards. I used 27 mm boards instead of 19 mm for the structure. I didn't make other change. It's very sturdy and 2 adults can seat on it without problem. I am very happy with the result.
Other persons used the same wooden thickness as for chairs but I wanted to be sure that it would be sturdy.
Good luck!
