Comfortable Easy-Build Chair

This was a great project! If a 70 year old woman can build it, so can you. I had an old bench that used 2x4's and those plastic ends. I took it apart and salvaged most of the boards after sanding them down. So my cost was zero dollars to build this, but I'm sure it wouldn't last as long as using new wood.
I found the instructions easy to follow. I used 2 1/2" exterior star screws, and finished the wood with solid exterior stain in a sage green. The wood wasn't in great shape, so a transparent stain would not be a good choice for me.
I bought a $16 chair cushion and I'm tempted to make another chair!
