Happy weekend friends! We are having the most beautiful weather here in Virginia. The windows are open and a fresh breeze is blowing through the house. I love these days. This post isn’t about the weather but when it’s nice out that means I get to create comfortably outdoors.
Remember in THIS POST I framed in our kitchen refrigerator in the house we rent? Well, I took the wood out, which was super easy BTW and you can read the OTHER POST on how I made it a temporary enclosure. I am working on getting our rental back to it’s original condition. (no big plans yet but …. that story is for another day)
The only plan I had in place for this project was the size but as far as style goes, like most of the time I just wing it.
I start with a top that measures the length of our sofa (85 inches) and the legs are 2×4’s sliced in half lengthwise and cut down to the height that was 1/2 inch shorter than the back of our sofa (the wood structure part, not the cushions).
My goal was to use only the scraps of wood I already had. Instead of using metal “L” brackets to fasten the corners together I cut 1x’s or 2X4’s at a 45 degree angle and used 1 1/4 inch and 2 inch wood screws to put it all together.
I love to pull my saws out onto the driveway and just start cutting wood and fastening it together as I go. In the picture above you can see that my wood has already been used in other places but now comes together to make a unique table. I had in mind a picture that I pinned a long time ago…
