Simple White Outdoor Sofa and Loveseat

Submitted by Peoriajess on Mon, 04/09/2012 - 08:48

I built this set from the plans of the Simple white outdoor sofa. I did make a few changes to meet my needs. My original idea was to make 2 sofas but after doing some measuring I realized a loveseat would be better so I just took about 24" off of the length. I also did add slats to the arms, just to give it a different look. I found this project to be pretty easy with the plans that are provided and I used the link that is attached to the page for sew mama sew to make all of the cushions! I built the side table from the plans for the Ottoman or Accent Table for Simple Modern Outdoor Sectional although I made the table larger width wise (24 x 24) to fit nicely between the sofa and loveseat.
The only thing I would do a bit differently if I were to build it again would be to use a slightly better grade wood so I would have to use less wood filler and sand less ( That is what took the most time ) otherwise this could have been finished in half the time it took me. This is a great project that really transformed my back patio!
