DIY Cinder Block Lounger

I had a bunch of old cinder blocks from a fire pit that I’m redoing, so I searched Pinterest to see if there were any ways to reuse them.  Sure enough, there were so many cool ideas. But the one that really stood out to me was a DIY Cinder Block Lounger.

I put this together myself in about 2 hours. The most difficult part for me was carrying the 8ft posts to the back yard. Not easy with a bad back! But there is always a great feeling of accomplishment when the project is finished. Here is what you need to make your own cinder block lounger.

Supplies needed:

4- 4x4x8 posts
12-cinder blocks
Paint of your choice
Deep seating lounge cushion

This is so simple to make once you have the supplies. Simply put 6 cinder blocks on each end about 7 feet apart on a flat surface. Put the posts through the opening and add your cushion. Simple as that! Enjoy!

I  painted my blocks black as well as the posts and bought the cushion at Job Lot.

Hi Brenda. I used a rust oleum spray paint with primer in a gloss black. I did give it 3 coats and then a clear sealer. Hopefully it will hold up. It was so easy to put together and would look great against a wall to with back cushions. Thanks hope you give it a try!

Hi:) What type of paint did you use? How many coats? I always thought they wouldn't take paint all that great, but I love what you did!

Thanks Jen! My daughter helped me pick out the cushion. It's definitely a great reading spot!
