I’ve gathered the best DIY outdoor furniture projects out there together in one place. From benches to tables and everything in between, each of these outdoor furniture ideas is stylish, functional, and budget-friendly.
Over the years I’ve built more furniture for our outdoor spaces than all of the rooms inside our house combined.
I don’t know why, but it is incredibly hard to find nice, affordable outdoor furniture to buy! It seems like all the outdoor furniture in stores is either incredibly expensive or it’s cheap and flimsy and meant to last one season at best.
Building your own DIY outdoor furniture is the best way to get affordable furniture pieces that look great and hold up well.
