Outdoor Fabric Sofa

DIY outdoor sofa inspired by West Elm

Cait and Robert of Hernando House recently came up with a plan to whip their large covered back porch into shape for summer. One of the items on their wish list was a outdoor sofa from West Elm. Well, not the actual $899 sofa, but a more budget-friendly DIY version! Cait and Robert worked together to plan, build, and upholster their cushy sofa. Looks like a great place to kick back after a long day!

Nan simply used a piece of plywood and table legs for the base and then got a seamless upholstered finish by adding  a pleated skirt and decorative trim. Not only is the end product beautiful but super strong and sturdy!
