At It Again

This post is a couple weeks late. Better late than never, right?

The latest project around the Zinsmeister/Allen household is our new outside couch and chair that I built! I was so excited about this project, it only took maybe 4 hours to build the whole thing. Super simple thanks to Ana White!

I'll post the pictures of the process, but I have yet to buy cushions for either of them. Good quality outdoor cushions are EXPENSIVE! I'll need 4 bottom cushions and then 4 back cushions. I've seen that Pier 1 has some good ones, although I want to wait a bit longer to see if they go on sale even more. Other than that, I haven't seen much of anything I want from any other store! Ideas, people?!

Anyway, without further adieu.




My fancy schmancy saw that I got for my birthday! Thanks, Ryan! ;)





Building the seat and arms for the chair.



Boom! Cranked out a couch.


AND a chair!


Screened-in porch. They fit so well. Staining starts tomorrow.


Decided on this color for the stain. The wood won' show much anyway once the cushions are on.


Done! Please give ideas where to find cushions. I'm dying to sit and read a book out there.
