Hello summer! I’m sure most of you are also experiencing the heat wave in your area! It’s down right hot in the Lone Star State:) I couldn’t get this project started fast enough!
Ahhh!!! Swoon! Love this set of chaise lounges from Pottery Barn….but I don’t love the $600 price tag (and yes that is the “marked-down” price;) I’m sure they are worth every penny but my wallet will never know!
Nope, I saved some dough and built my own for $25 thanks to the free plans I got from Ana’s site!
Trip to Home Depot for supplies (no kids;) Thank you hubby!
I used my battery-powered drill and nailer to assemble the chairs…. oh and Gorilla Glue Wood Glue of course;) Here are some pictures of the steps I took as I went…
I used the base of the chaise to assemble the back by aligning each board on top of the other to ensure a good match when the back was attached.
Use narrow utility hinges to attach the back to the base. The regular width is too wide…I learned this the hard way…
This is the prop for the back rest:)
Again, narrow hinges to attach the prop to the back.
This is my FAVORITE part! All of these scraps are used to make…
stoppers for the prop on the back rest!!! You just pick the angles that you want the back rest to sit at and attach them!
I finished with Elmer’s Wood Filler and a good sanding using my battery-powered sander and that was it!
Yah, I had to make two:) I might make a third….
I can’t share all of them with you just yet….because they aren’t finished but, I will be back very soon to show you the finished chaise lounges!
These were very simple to build. The only annoying step was the hinges but after I got past the first set I was okay:)
Time invested: 1.5 hours to measure and cut lumber for 2 chairs, 1.5 hours to build each chair.
Money invested: $50 for lumber!
I’m a happy girl:) I’ll be a happier girl when I can actually enjoy them!!! Hope you all have a great FRIDAY! Whoop!
