We were inspired to round up a few creative ideas for building DIY outdoor furniture after stumbling across this gem of a makeover on the The Pennington Point blog. Lisa and her family created this entire outdoor living space out on their deck using “junk” from around their home and random building materials left over from previous projects. She even made her own cushions and pillows.
One of the many things we learned from the Penningtons is to hold on to every leftover scrap from a project. You never know when it might come in handy. Another thing we learned is that with the right tools, materials and a little patience, you can create the perfect spot to spend an afternoon or evening outdoors.
Here are a few more ideas for making outdoor furniture you can use in your own unique outdoor living area.
DIY Outdoor Furniture
Turn crates and cinder blocks into seating benches. Seal and spray paint an old stump and you’ve got a glam side table. Bale logs in chicken wire for a table, or chainsaw them into a one-of-a-kind chaise lounger. Take a good look at these amazing projects and just imagine the outdoor furniture you could create.
