Pool lounger from PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is a type of thermoplastic polymer that is most often used in chair. It is water resistant and comes in different thicknesses and lengths, depending on the intended use. If you want to use PVC to build a pool chair, all you need is some basic tools and some PVC to go with them.

Cut four 1-1 / 2-inch PVC to the desired height you want the chair to be. Measure and mark PVC with a tape measure and black marking. Move a bow file and back over PVC to cut them into equal pieces of desired height. Most pool lounger design will be 24 inches tall. Cut another four pieces into the desired width of the chair, just as the previous pieces were cut. The width is generally the same as the height. This will form the base of the chair. Attach four 1 1/2 inch cap pieces to the bottom of the first four pieces you cut. Attach one 1 1/2 inch wide piece to the legs on the opposite side of the lid. A wide piece is a three-sided piece that can connect the legs to the frame of the chair. Snap in all parts of the body to wide so the legs and frame are ready.
Cut two pieces to drive along the height of the chair and one along the back. The backing will be the same as the width of the chair and the pieces run vertically along the back of the chair are generally slightly higher, depending on personal preferences. Slide the two vertical pieces into Wye at the back of the chair and place a 1 1/2 inch elbow piece on top of the vertical pieces to attach it to the back. Set pillows or something else that will not be damaged when it is wet on the chair and back for support.
If you can’t keep spray paint from getting on the wood, you can spray paint the plastic, and either leave it that color, or paint it again on top of the spray paint. Anyway, test to see if spray paint covers the wood. If you want to paint the plastic another color, try it too. Paint the chair. Protect the floor with a cloth and provide adequate ventilation. Use at least two layers, and allow it to dry between coats. Use a hair dryer to accelerate drying. Test it again before turning it on. After it seems dry, press a white towel on the surface to make sure none of the paint is contaminated. Wait a week before trying to clean it for any reason.
