What would a great outdoor courtyard be without lounging furniture where you could put up your feet, sunbathe or read a book?

We were able to replicate the look of custom-built furniture that fits the space perfectly without the high cost. The removable cushions were covered with weather-resistant outdoor fabric that we stapled to luan on the back.
