$35 (55) Chaise Lounge

This cost me $55 for wood (pine), nails, and bolts. Additional $7 in paint. It's very sturdy and very comfy with a lounge chair cushion (Walmart had a great price--cheaper than I would have spent to make one myself). This will also serve as bench seating for my deck (I love multi-use furniture). Thanks Brook and Ana for this great plan!

Estimated Cost
$65 ($100 with cushion)
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used

I have my lounge completed except for the slots. It looks great and I am very happy with the results. But, in looking at your finished photos, I notice the 2 X 4 in the horizontal slot is not seated into the space completely. And, melbooker's photo shows the board sitting on top of the rail. So, I'm a bit confused about cutting in the slots. Any advice would be very helpful! Thanks
