How to Make an Outdoor Sofa For Your Patio – Creative Decorating Ideas

Enjoy the sun and fresh air. An excellent addition to your outdoor space is an outdoor couch. The sofa is a wonderful location to meet friends, have some snacks or a good book. The video below will teach you how you can build your own outdoor sofa.

There are a range of supplies to construct your patio couch. You will need ten 8 foot 2″x4″ kiln-dried whitewood studs. Additionally, you’ll need the #10 1/2 inch flat-head star star wood deck screws, with bits. Also, you may need wood putty and exterior paint or stain that has polyurethane.

In the beginning, you’ll need to take your 2x4s and cut them to 72 inches in order to make the seats. After that, cut five pieces measuring 21 inches to make the cross-pieces. Arm rests are made up of two 24-inch pieces. Next, cut one plank with a width of 75 inches and another in 79 inches for backboards. The legs of the bench should be at least 22 1/2 inches in length.

After you’ve cut your pieces of wood, you’ll need to put together the seat frame. Once you have it assembled, connect the arm rests and legs. Attach the back boards. Lastly, you can apply stain and paint to your new outdoor couch.
