Knowing that I was going to be fitting for the 24-inch wide cushion onto the couch, I also found the pillows for this couch and Target, and I think they say well. I bought them today, so they definitely still have them and they were the best quality. Pillows that they had, I did everything else, but really pasta. You want something that I would actually want to like. Lay against and kneel on my skin and these are kind of like a crock material, so really nice. The only other piece of equipment that we had to buy was fresh.
You didn't have that and that's definitely what something that you will need in order to make the pocket holes which combines the back knees to this couch and we ended up using it to make supports that were not inclusion. We saved a lot of money during this project. You just modified lengths on the plans and it was really together. I think anybody can do this within a weekend and I'm gonna show you how to do that. I'm gonna put a link down below in the description box to the original plans that I used for this project and what I will include in this video is how I modified those plans to fit four cushions and to end up at 103 inches long.
The first thing you're gonna need to get for this project are eleven and two by fours, and we got them at 10 feet long and they were two dollars and forty-four cents. 18. Other items that we use for this project were two and a half inch long, exterior wood screws, two and a half inch pocket hole, screws, a hand, sander sandpaper, a miter saw measuring tape, a square drill and also a mini pocket hole. Jig, nine of my two by fours are gonna, be cut down to 96 inches. So that's what I'm doing with my miter saw taking nine of my boards and I'm marking them at 96 inches and cutting off the excess.
The excess adds up to be 24 inches, which is perfect because I need fourteen two by fours at 24 inches. So I just need to take my tenth 2x4 and cut five more pieces at 24 inches and then, with my eleventh 2x4, I'm gonna cut two pieces at 27 inches and three pieces at nine and one-eighth of an inch, and these are the three support pieces that I added to the back of the couch that is not included in the original plans from Rio nation make sure you sand all of your boards. I just use a 220 grit just to get off that top layer of roughness and to smooth them out. It didn't fix any knots or major holes and the boards, but that's fine.
This is an outdoor couch. I don't need the wood to be perfect. I don't recommend skipping this step because you're going to be putting cushions on this couch and you want to make sure that you don't have anything major, that's sticking out of the wood that could catch your cushions and possibly cause a rip or tear in them.
