Beachy Storage Sofa

I love my new sofa! It is ten times more comfy than our old one. We live on an island and it was definitely cheaper to build my own sofa than to ship one in and pay duty on it. Thank you Ana for making this possible! Never thought I'd be building my own sofa, but we are so thankful for it. We even threw together our own little ottoman/toy box to go along with it from scraps...added bonus!


Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
Total for everything probably about $500 ( a little higher costs for the wood here on the island, in addition to the other materials)
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used
Clear Satin Poly finish on the parts of the wood that are still visible after the fabric goes on.

this is so amazing! We go through so many sofas, mainly because we buy used, and you never know if they are going to last. This one looks really sturdy, and it could be recovered if the fabric got old, or you just wanted to update. Definitely considering this before we buy another one. And the storage hidden inside makes it even more desirable!! Love the fabric you chose as well.
