These plans are super easy to follow! It took me about 4-6 hours to assemble the sofa and the same for the one arm sofa. However, filling screw holes, sanding and more sanding and did I mention the sanding...and the staining because we all love to watch paint dry. The weather here in Ohio was very cooperative, there was either a heat advisory or it was raining. Now that I’m looking back on it, hind site and all that I would have taken the time to sand and stain at least some of the pieces prior to assembling it was quite an under taking saving it all for the end.
Estimated Time Investment
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Type of Wood
Olympic Maximum Semi-Transparent Stain & Sealant in Cinder after the stain dries I gave both pieces a worn and distressed look by sanding lightly. I then topped it off with a spar urethane in clear satin to make sure all the exposed would was cover because I didn’t get treated lumber.
