Patio Loveseat

Submitted by saroge3 on Mon, 06/10/2013 - 00:34

i was having a BBQ for my boyfriend's 27th birthday and we didn't have anything to sit on outside other than those fold up chairs that you take to tailgates. We went to look at buying some furniture from Lowes and we were pretty shocked at the prices. Since I had my mind set on having something other than a lawn chair for people to sit on when they came over, I figured I would give this blog a once over to see what it had. I am so glad that I did! I was able to make this loveseat in three days, and it is bigger, more comfortable, sturdier, and $500 cheaper than the same piece of furniture that I had picked out at Lowes. ( I realize this project could totally be done faster but I am a full time student along with a full time job,,, I did what I could. Plus a storm rolled through and knocked my power out ) I love my new patio bench and can't wait to build the matching chairs and perhaps a small table.
