We had some leftover “beams” from our DIY Restoration Hardware Bardenas table, and figured we’d put them to good use by making a matching sofa for the patio. DIY furniture is the best, because you can customize everything. For instance, we knew we wanted a sofa on our back patio, but we didn’t have much space. And most of the outdoor sofas for sale are either very small (more like loveseats) or very large (more like sectionals). We were able to build this sofa to the exact dimensions we needed.
