Revamping A Bland Patio

Submitted by BrookeEye on Mon, 07/27/2015 - 08:32

Completing this sectional was hard work and took us several weeks to finish (with full-time jobs and two toddlers under 4), but it was SO worth it! We used cedar 1x4s treated with Behr Semi-Translucent Deck Stain and Sealer in Pure White. The cushions are from Improvements Catalog, and they turned out to fit perfectly. The total price for the section with the cushions was around $700. We know if we had purchased it in a store that it would have cost much more, without being a customized the way we wanted it. The best part about sitting on our patio now is knowing that we did this ourselves! Thank you Ana for all the amazing plans!!

$250 for the sectional (wood, Kreg blue kote screws, stain/sealer & brushes);
