|Why yes, that couch is UGLY. And yes, we do slide off it.|
But it was used, cheap, and it's weatherproof.
Just look at the table with the food.
It was an old board, sanded down and natural tongue oil. I hate painted wood, it hides the grain of the wood, and paint always chips. Stains and oils sink and are easy to reapply.
I only bought two sailing cleats and some non-stretchy cord from the hardware store. I had the board, oil and old hinges.
|Ropes mean no table legs to get in the way of our legs!|
|Sailing cleats to be able to easily cinch it tight.|
|A slip knot and screw under table.|
|A used hinge and random screws for the two under board hinges. Didn't even need a drill bit.|
|It's like a large screen TV stuck on NTC (Neighborhood Traffic Channel.)|
