How to Build an Outdoor Daybed with Side Table

This DIY has been an amazing addition to my backyard seating area. I love to LOUNGE at the end of the day and kick my feet up, so this build is perfect for just that. With the weather getting warmer, it's the perfect time to add this to your own home!





Materials List

  • 12 - 2 x 4 x 8

  • 1 - 1 x 8 x 8 cedar picket

  • 27.5 x 52 crib mattress Make sure it's waterproof, not memory foam! (here's one I like)

  • 2.5" pocket hole screws

  • 2.5" decking screws

Tools Used

  • Master Mechanic Miter saw (I love this one with the forward rails)

  • Drill

  • Pocket hole jig

  • Orbital sander

Lets start off with the rectangle frame. Using the 2x4s, cut 2 - 2 x 4 @ 67" pieces and 2 - 2 x 4 @ 31" pieces.




Next are the supports for seating. You will need 5 - 2x4 @ 28".

Four of the 28" supports will be evenly placed from front to back to support the mattress. I set these in the frame one inch down the top so the cushion was set into the frame as opposed to on top it to prevent the cushion from sliding. I attached these using pocket hole screws.

The last 28" support is flipped vertically and attached at 52" to butt up against where the mattress cushion will end. This piece also acts as a support for the side table.



The legs and backing.

I learned the hard way that it's MUCH easier to attach the legs and backing once they are pre-assembled. You'll need 4 - 2 x 4 @ 31" for these legs.



The longer side has 4 - 2 x 4 @ 63" backing pieces. I started at the top and worked my way down, using a 1" spacer and attaching them to the legs with pocket hole screws.


The shorter side has 4 - 2 x 4 @ 25.5" pieces, spaced and attached as the larger backing was.












The legs are attached to the rectangular frame 12.5" up.




The front leg is a 2 x 4 @ 16" and is attached to the inside of the rectangular frame.

Lastly, I used a single cedar picket that was 7.5" wide and cut 2 - 31" pieces for the side table. I attached these to the frame from the top.



I did a light stain on mine and sealed it with Thompson Water Seal from True Value. I've used this sealant on all of my outdoor projects and it's by far the best outdoor protection I have worked with.

As always, please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions. I am excited to see and re-share your builds!



Happy building, Friends!
