Outdoor Daybed with Side Table

Outdoor Daybed with Side Table

LOLS10在线直播下注This DIY has been an amazing addition to my backyard seating area. I love to LOUNGE at the end of the day and kick my feet up, so this build is perfect for just that. With the weather getting warmer, its the perfect time to add this to your own home!

Materials List

Tools Used

Lets start off with the rectangle frame. Using the 2x4s, cut 2 - 2 x 4 @ 67" pieces and 2 - 2 x 4 @ 31" pieces.

Next are the supports for seating. You will need 5 - 2x4 @ 28".

Four of the 28" supports will be evenly placed from front to back to support the mattress. I set these in the frame one inch down the top so the cushion was set into the frame as opposed to on top of to prevent the cushion sliding. I attached these using pocket hole screws.

The last 28" support is flipped vertically and attached at 52" to butt up against where the mattress cushion will end. This piece also acts as a support for the side table.

I learned the hard way that its MUCH easier to attach the legs and backing once they are pre assembled. You'll need 4 - 2 x 4 @ 31" for these legs.

The longer side has 4 - 2 x 4 @ 63" backing pieces. I started at the top and worked my way down, using a 1" spacer and attaching them to the legs with pocket hole screws.

The shorter side has 4 - 2 x 4 @ 25.5" pieces, spaced and attached as the larger backing was.

I did a light stain on mine and sealed it with Thompson Water Seal from True Value. I've used this sealant on all of my outdoor projects and its by far the best outdoor protection I have worked with.
