Here are the items that you will need for this project:
Now we have come to the part where we put on the legs and back support. Assembling the legs were pretty easy as well as adding the back support. I must say that if you have a driver for pocket screws use it for the back support. We did not and as a result we had to use about 5 inch screws to attach the back support.
Now on to the cushions. First, I need to say that I am in love with this fabric. I got it from Jo-Ann's on sale for $6.99!! Score! I also had a 20% discount. The total came out to about $60. I brought 9 yards but only needed about 6-7. The foam was $25 and I purchased 4 from home depot. I hand stitched 3 of the 4 cushions and my mom or shall I say design assistant did the last one for me. If you have a sewing machine... honey! Use it!!!! I hand stitched them and my fingers hurt for 2 days after.
My mom was helping me cut the fabric to fit the foam. I brought too much fabric but that's ok I will make some pillows. I love the boldness of this color. Also, it is important to note that I cut the foam in half for the back support cushion. Cutting foam is pretty difficult. If you have an electric knife I strongly suggest you use that. I used a razor but I was not happy with the rough edges.
I hope you enjoyed this post. This was a very fun project. It took about 8 hours to build but it was worth every minute. The memories we have from this will last a lifetime. I hope that you will try to build this also and be sure to tag me on social media so I can see your work!
See ya later!
