For whatever reason, right before spring, Pier One had these $45 cushions on clearance for $11.13. It took us trips to 4 different stores to collect all the cushions, but we had a new patio set for our new house (minus the sofas). As such, I modified Ana's plans to accommodate the smaller size of the cushions (22x22). Then, I used the savings from the cushions to justify buying a new table saw. It took a while to buy and cut all the lumber, kreg-jig everything together, fill all the holes, sand, seal all the wood, etc., but the work was well worth it. Nearing completion of this project, I built the pictured modified cooler coffee table to ensure that no guest ever has to get up from their seat for any reason during a summer barbeque.
