I created this sofa from 2x6s that were left over from a pergola we built. I got the cushions at Lowes for $57 per set (3 sets). This is the first thing I ever built and I did it all by myself including cutting the boards to length. In total it took about 4 hours. I am so proud!!! Thank you Ana White for giving me the confidence to build this furniture. I will never, ever, ever pay outrageous retail prices for wood furniture again.
