DIY Outdoor Sectional

I have always wanted an outdoor sectional for our patio. They look so comfy and chic and can fit way more people that my small wicker furniture. There are so many beautiful sectionals online, but the problem is they are so expensive, I just cant justify spending $800 on something that I can make myself for cheaper.


So this weekend, I decided to take the plunge and make my own outdoor sectional. I did soI me searching, and I found some awesome plans from Ana White online. These plans were great because they only used 2x4s, and they can be built with or without pocket holes. Perfect plans for a beginner. Here is an example from Ana White’s website how this looks when then sectional is completed.


Y’all I can tell you this is so easy to build. I did it in a weekend and for $120 in materials. That is a steal. If you re considering doing this, you should. You will love having this for your patio or deck.
