Sectional Sofa build

Recommended Posts

I decided a couple months ago to build my own chaise lounge sectional from 2x6s and recycle the springs and back supports from the old chaise and sofa I had that was probably 15 years old. I built the ottoman last weekend and designed it so it will fit up against the sectional basically creating a queen size bed.  I am going to use the ottoman as storage as well so i'll be installing a cushioned top that will lift up. 

I'm going to stain the oak inserts, and then paint the whole thing 'carbonized' which is a charcoal grey.  I am recycling the cushions from the old chaise lounge and sofa.  I'm going to recover those in a light grey and then get multi colored throw pillows.. I didn't want the natural wood tone b/c of the walnut flooring.  I will use multiple color tones from the multicolored slate tiles in the kitchen and entry to bring it all together.

Dang that’s ambitious! I’m super interested in how this turns out!

Yes, little bit ambitious, but i've got about $100 in lumber and that's all other than my time.  Better to me than dropping $1,500+ on something at a store.  I'll update with pics once i'm  done.
