We've been wanting to tackle some outdoor furniture for a while and finally took advantage of a coupon to get a bunch of outdoor cushions. With a big mound of cushions taking up space, we had to force ourselves to get to it. We spent more time talking about cushion and stain colors then it actually took to cut and screw it together. This is a great solid project to start with. Don't be intimidated by it. We can't wait to start on some chairs to go with it. 

Estimated Cost
The cushions are from atHome. It's hard to say exactly because we bought a lot of them (for some upcoming projects) when we had a 20% off coupon. For these three sets and accent pillows, probably $125. Probably $25-30 for the lumber. $29 for a gallon of Behr deck coating (used maybe 1/4of it). $9 for a box of deckmate screws (used 75% of them).
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Finish Used
Behr Deckplus solid color waterproofing wood stain in cordovan brown.
