DIY: Outdoor seating.Home decor and designs with style
Autumn is around the corner and it’s probably my favorite season. Wouldn’t it be nice to sit outdoors at twilight and just chill? I want to share this outdoor seating project my sister did in one weekend. It’s quite simple, plus it’s cute and functional!
WHAT WAS USED:If you choose to paint the cinder blocks and lumber, do this first. Give it a few hours to dry. Then assemble the cinder blocks in a way that the middle row has 3 openings. When you have it the way you want, use the construction glue to hold it together.See more:
• Cushions: $120 for 4 (Target – “Outdoor Threshold Deep Seating Cushion”)
• Pillows: approx. $50 for 5 (Target/Ikea)
• Side pillows: (optional) $10 each… came from another chair
• All-purpose construction glue: $5 (Home Depot)
• 4×4 lumber (8′ long): approx. $30 for 3 (Home Depot)
• Cinder blocks: $15 for 8
• Paint: $30, sister used 2 shades (optional, but adds a nice touch and makes the cinder blocks look less like cinder blocks)
There really isn’t any construction. Once you buy the materials, it’s basically assembling everything together. Total length is approximately 103 inches.
Some suggestions:• If you don’t have a wall, leave out the pillows and this can be a cushioned bench instead.• You can make it shorter than this. Have the store cut your lumber to the length desired.
- For estimation, the total length with 4 cushions is about 103 inches (8 1/2 feet).
- 3 cushions used is approx 6 1/2 feet.
- 2 cushions used is approx 4 1/2 feet.
There you have it. An easy weekend project. Thanks little sister for doing this so I can share!
