Simple Modern Outdoor Sectional and Ottomans

Submitted by dwcampb on Fri, 07/22/2011 - 12:04

This was my second project and is the simple outdoor sectional. Took me about 8 hours to build all the sections and another 8 hours to stain everything. We ended up buying the cushions and pillows from Garden Ridge in Texas. Total cost for the cushions was about $500. Wood and materials was about $300. I used 1 x 4 cedar to insure it was rot and insect resistant. Then I stained it with Behr Premium Outdoor Natural #500. Looks great out on our covered patio. I will be building more as we are in the process of installing a pool of which I need lots of furniture to go around the decking!

Estimated Cost
$850 with cushions
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Finish Used
Behr Premium Outdoor Natual #500. I sprayed all stain with a cup gun and gently spread the stain with a pad applicator. I did 2 coats on all sides.

This is gorgeous and it goes really nicely with your brick house too! I'd love to see more pics if you have. Great job :)

I want to build this so bad but have to be patient and wait because of the cost of the cushions - it's crazy! You did an amazing job!

Cushions are expensive because you want to buy a mold/mildew resistant foam on the inside. Secondly, you want the fabric to be an outdoor fabric that has resistance to fading from the sun, but again that will resist mold/mildew and withstand rain, etc...with that said it makes them expensive.
