My New DIY Dream Outdoor Bed Lounger

18 Jan

I have lots of DIY projects on my list for 2011 and this is one of them.  I discovered these outdoor bed beauties at the place we were staying at while vacationing in Ixtapa.

I had a mild obsession with them.  I took lots and lots of pictures.  I am only torturing you with a few. I gazed at them all day, every day as I slurped on pina coladas.  Ok, maybe it was a strong obsession.

I really would like to try to make one of these this year.  I could sit it in our backyard patio and read my Real Simple and House Beautiful magazines all day protected from the sun.

Who needs a hammock when you have an outdoor bed?!  Rock on!

Making this bed would be a great feat for me considering I’ve never worked with wood or a saw.  But they look simple to make??  Right?

I didn’t have a tape measurer but it appeared to be 3×3 boards –  made into a platform with a square frame.  I am willing to give it a try.  I even have an extra full size mattress sitting in our garage that could be used for the cushion (if a cover was made for it).

These had a detachable roof made of vinyl.

If I get the courage to try to make this, I’ll let you know how it turns out!
