DIY Daybed For Outdoors

DIY to Try: An Outdoor Daybed For Summer

We've all fantasized about having an outdoor daybed dedicated to snoozing and sunbathing, but most of us have also felt the pangs of sticker shock while hunting for a desirable option. If you're in the "most of us" category and aren't opposed to rolling up your sleeves for a weekend project, we've found a DIY daybed tutorial you'll be tempted to try. The Apprentice Extrovert blog tackles this Summer-perfect project in an easy-to-follow two part series: one for the daybed and one for the upholstered cushion.

Need suggestions for tricking out your custom daybed? We've got you covered!

  • Tilt Decorative Pillow ($95): Splurge on an outdoor pillow that also doubles as an eye-catching focal point for your daybed. We love the circular shape and fade-resistant design on this John Robshaw option.
  • Orange Ikat Throw Pillow Set ($24, originally $30): Mix in these affordable outdoor cushions for a high and low balance that won't break your budget.
  • Canopy Stripe Sunbrella Fabric ($25 per yard): Go classic but bold with black and white striped fabric that can withstand the elements.
  • Latex Floor and Patio Enamel: For a polished look, try covering your scrap wood frame with a pretty coat of paint that can also be extended to your deck. Resistant to soaps and detergents, grease and oil, this Benjamin Moore paint goes on smoothly and only requires a single application.
