I am very suprised, but I made my very first ANYTHING with the help of this website and my very dear step-dad! We used two plans from this website and did some modifications by adding some back supports at the tops. We also made two foot stools to act as chaises on the two ends. I thought that I would go ahead and post the results now before I painted the sectional so more of the detail. What cost so much was the cushions. The cushions were from Target and they were $650.00. I was concerned that when people sat on the sectional they would be able to feel the wood underneath, so I purchased the 5" deep seat cushions and over sized pillows, which I am soooo glad that I did, it makes this sectional look so much more professional looking and gives it even more of a crisp look! I also didn't skimp on the paint which was $65.00 on the paint! The rest was wood, materials and tools that were needed. But if you priced purchasing something like this from PB or WestElm, it would easily be 3-4K at the least! Unto the next project!!!
