For quite awhile, Crystal has been
bugging requesting for me to make a couch for our back deck– A love seat that we can put under cover in the winter (this would be awesome on a covered front porch), and in the sunshine in the summer. A place where she can take her laptop to write, where she can curl up to read a good book while sipping a cup of tea, a “home date night” destination where we can retire to once the kids have gone to bed with a pint of beer and a glass of wine.
DIY Outdoor Pallet Couch Design
Tools & Materials
- 6 Wooden pallets (look for the HT stamp which means they have been heat treated)
- #8 1 1/2 in. Decking screws (I suggest buying a 50 pack)
- Various L-shaped and corner brackets and mending plates
- Saw (table, circular, or hand)
- HomeRight Finish Max Fine Finish HVLP Sprayer.
- Outdoor Wood Stain
- Cushions (We recycled a set from our old patio furniture)
- Safety tools: eye and ear protection, work gloves, particulate & paint respirator
