Outdoor daybed, we've already made our cut. So, let's build it. Hardware is always optional. We've got some bases and caps for the 4x4 posts and some decorative angle brackets. Add up one yes, so step one. We are going to make the assemblies from the front and the back frame of the bed and to do that. We're going to attach a 2 by 2 cleat to the bottom of these 2 by 4 side frames, so we're making sure that we're using exterior screws to attach everything he's gonna put his bed. Ask somebody husband asked me, I said I'm so excited I'm building us an outdoor bed and he was like.
Where are we gonna play? You know I was like in the grass you can have to weed eat around it now make sure that your pocket holes are facing up right here, because those are gonna be facing the inside of the bed. You also want to make sure that we're creating these mirror image so that they can mirror each other in the bed. Slats can fit inside now. This is a super, easy build. It's really big, but there's only about, we're adding some all-weather bases and caps on each of our 4x4 posts and that'll just help protect it walk up by all right we have all four posts done and now we're moving on to.
That's pretty fast! Now that you've finished the front and back frame pieces we're going to move to the side assembly we're using the short two by fours on the bottom. We're gonna put them 18 inches up from the bottom of the post, or attaching them with two and a half inch pocket hole. Screws and wood glue. Make sure that they're flush with the inside of those four by fours and the pocket hole space inside all right now, we've got the bottom pieces attached we're gonna attach the top pieces. This is gonna be a little bit different.
We don't want pocket holes up there, gonna see them so we're going to use our decorative angle brackets. Now we've got those bottom side pieces on we're, moving up to the top and we're attaching these two inches from the top and we're centering them on the inside of those four by fours and we're attaching them with wood screws and the angle brackets. The reason we are leaving two inches from the top is because I'm adding a optional pergola top, so you can have some slots across the top and it'll give you space to add those alright.
So we are moving on to, and this is the part where it's always nice to have a little a little help like a friendly sister to hold this up for you because this thing is not small. It's such an easy build that it. I think the hardest part of it is just maneuvering all the giant pieces and having somebody hold it for you. So that's my job today, I'm rural support, an older and older, so we're gonna do the same thing. We've got a 2x4 for the top back brace and we're going to attach it the same way. We did those side pieces with the metal angle brackets and wood glue and we're glue and don't forget your wig glue, wit yep you're, doing an awesome job of holding up that side.
