This project came about because the couch in my den was too large. I liked the mission style and decided I’d try to build a loveseat using the springs from an old crib as the base for my seat cushion (for which I covered a baby bed mattress). Again I was unable to find a “free pattern” for this but improvised and did my own design. I used reclaimed oak flooring – my old standby – for the slats. The rest of the oak came from some 10’ 1X10’s I’d lucked up on at at sawmill that was going out of business for the lowly price of $5/board. Wish I could get more of that.
