Had a couch reupholstered and I wanted to change the base/legs. The old couch was on legs and my dogs would crawl under and were hard to get out if they didn’t want to! Also, I wanted to lift the couch a bit higher to make it easier to get off of.

The new base is 1/4” walnut plywood wrapped around construction pine. It’s finished with Rubio Monocoat pure.

I also installed some 110v electrical outlets with USB A and USB C receptacles to make device charging, while lounging on the couch easier.

This was my first time using Rubio and it was ridiculously easy. I will definitely be using it again.

Nice to be able to customize. Not sure the dog is happy about the new setup ;) Rest of the family looks positive about the upgrade.
