Our stressful lives mean that we sometimes take the time to relax. A holiday may not be in the budget, so we have to come up with other ways to relax. Many of us have an outdoor wooden reversible sectional sofa chaise that we usually use in spring and summer. However, the weather is not always conducive to relaxing outdoors. Soon you will kick back curled up with a blanket, your favorite book and the family’s cat connecting to your heart’s content.
Build your Chaise Sofa
Build and attach to the back. Start by removing one of the arms from the reversible sectional sofa chaise. Use the base of the arm, measure and cut wood to create a back for one end of the living room. You can create a frame with 2-of-4 wood and cut the wooden rods to fill in. Put it back with a wood screw to where the arm was once. Finish with a fine sandpaper to leave the surface smooth for the new color. Wipe clean with a dry cloth to remove any remaining dust.
Paint the wood. Your choice of color and fabric determines the style of the sleeper sofa lounge. If you want to create an elegant look, paint wood in a gold or silver metallic lacquer and choose silk-like fabrics and lots of pillows that are soft and plush. If your outdoor pillows are in good condition, you can reuse them by sewing simple covers to cover them. If the old pillows are a bit flat, the elements will wrap them with batting and give them a more firm feel. However, you will need to buy a new piece of foam for the new backing you created.
