Do you want to refresh the appearance of your backyard? One way to accomplish this is to add some DIY furniture pieces to your outdoor décor. DIY furniture pieces are unique as well as easy on the household budget. I like the idea of sitting on the patio and looking at furniture pieces that I created; don’t you? Check out some ideas for DIY furniture perfect for your backyard.
A Wire Patio Table
You may already have the basic elements necessary to make a wire patio table. The base of this DIY table is a wire cage. If you grow tomatoes, you may have a few of these wire cages in storage. The top of the table is a pine round. You can buy an inexpensive unfinished pine round online. This project allows you to exercise your creativity. For instance, you can paint the pine round a solid color or embellish it with an appealing design. Or you could spray-paint the wire cage. No matter what creative ideas you come up with, you’ll have an attractive table that is sure to garner a lot of attention.
A Hand-Painted Chair Cushion
Do you have a favorite folding chair on your patio that needs a touch of style? Try painting a colorful cushion to attach to the chair. You can purchase a plain white chair cushion and paint it with fabric paint. Or you could get a cushion and paint a pillowcase to slip over it. A snazzy chair cushion with an interesting design can instantly give new life to any outdoor chair!
A Recycled Tire Table
With this DIY project, you’re helping the environment while beautifying your patio. Get a hold of a couple of old car tires to stack for the base of your table. You can use a piece of plywood for the surface of your table. Measure the diameter of one of your tires and take your sheet of plywood to a local hardware store. It won’t take long for them to cut a round top to fit the top of your table. Be sure to sand any rough edges off of your plywood top. Glue the round of plywood to the top tire of your table base. You have the option of painting the table top or putting a coat or two of stain on the wood to protect it from the elements.
A Handmade Rug
If you want to add some interest to your patio, try making a stylish outdoor rug. You can purchase an inexpensive rug to start with, or perhaps you already have a brown or tan rug on the patio. Masking tape and a few colors of spray paint can help you create a design that will bring your outdoor floor to life.
A Rolling Ottoman Cooler
Transform a simple plywood box into a rolling cooler to add to the décor of your backyard patio. Find a plywood box that can accommodate an average-sized Styrofoam cooler. Attach casters to the bottom of your plywood box/cooler. You can paint your box in bright colors to match the chair cushions and other furnishings on your patio. Make sure your plywood box has a firmly fitting lid. You can add a soft cushion on top of it and even attach handles to its sides. This is a furniture piece that is both practical and decorative.
