LUX / DECOR >> DIY Outdoor Sectional on the cheap!

Desanka Fasiska

Are you ready for this?! This is the biggest DO IT LUX ever... so big I had to put it into LUX / DECOR. I'm feeling VERY self-satisfied over here people! For the longest time I have been trying to figure out what to do with this area by my pool that I had once planned to be the dinning area. It's had many incarnations but none that were great and some that were down-right junky. I wanted to have a beautiful outdoor seating area but as anyone who has ever been in the market for outdoor furniture knows - it's a FORTUNE! I mean even for the crappy 1990's fake wicker stuff starts at $2500. I was at a loss. 

But then Divine inspiration struck! I got my friend with a pick up truck to drive around Downtown LA to search for pallets (FREE). Then I bought 3 twin Moshult mattresses for $89 each from Ikea and 3 fitted sheets $3.99 each... sprayed a little Scotch Guard on those babies and PRESTO!! a comfy and dare I say quite becoming 3 piece outdoor sectional for under $300!! HELLO! Bring on the Cali / Living people!


Let me show you how!

BEFORE... GROSS!!!!!!!

Step 1: You can find pallets for free or you can purchase them for about $7 each. I found 12  which I stacked 2 high in a U shape.

Step 2: Go on down to your local Ikea and purchase your mattresses... Or if you have more of a budget you can buy the really nice (but expensive) outdoor cushions. I'm using fitted sheets over the mattresses so that I can easily wash them once a week with my whites.

Step 3. Make sure the ground is level and place your pallets into position.
