Backyard furniture can be just as important as the furniture in your living room these days… after all, we have finally embraced the outdoors as another room on it’s own! Make sure your backyard space has furniture with a personality that tells a story about you and your family… Are you creative, adventurous, ingenious, or perhaps a little ‘uptown girl’? We have a great selection of super cool DIY backyard furniture projects that you can create for your garden!
First up is this lovely DIY chaise lounge project from ‘Build Something‘. If you are somewhat handy and have a short list of tools, you can do this! Love the look of this! Oh, and you’ll need gorgeous swimwear. Check out our Cupshe Swimsuits Review on our sister site OhMeOhMy!
This DIY outdoor coffee table with 4 hidden side tables is simply brilliant! This project comes to us courtesy of ‘Saws On Skates‘ with free plans once again on ‘Build Something‘. This project will take a little more skill than some of the others in this post but the payoff is big!
Made entirely with cedar fence boards, this DIY outdoor sectional from ‘Gray House Studio‘ will cost you less than $100! Check out the tutorial for this backyard furniture DIY.
‘Ana White‘ brings us this great modern DIY outdoor chair project made from 2x4s and 2x6s. I just love these chairs! Go check out her furniture plans, they are free!
Check out this next project below. This tire coffee table from ‘Madcap Frenzy‘ may or may not be your cup o’ tea, but you have to admire the creativity! Love the bright colors!
‘Homemade Modern‘ made this log lounger for $30 and in 6 hours… scroll down the page to see all the step by step photos, and they even have a how to video!
‘Apartment Therapy‘ shows us how to make a flower pot DIY outdoor table out of two pots and a pizza pan! (Oh, and a little bit of spray paint!)
This next one is one of the coolest DIY backyard furniture projects that we’ve seen! Check out this daybed lounger from ‘vtwonen‘. It looks like a very expensive piece of furniture. The whole tutorial is there, problem is, it’s in Dutch! Luckily, you can go to Google Translate and be able to read the instructions.
If you are like me, you might be getting a little tired of the “DIY pallet” phenomenon… but you have to admit, its clever, cheap and upcycling! Once in while a project catches our eye that makes it worth including, and this DIY pallet furniture by ‘Bridgman‘ is! Ok, the view might have swayed us a little…
This fence board DIY outdoor bench by ‘The Brick House‘ is my favorite piece of the post! It’s made from old fence boards, and I love the modern mid century legs to add an upscale and trendy feel. Click through to see it used indoors as well.
Another pallet project that made the grade. This pallet succulent table by ‘Far Out Flora‘ was made for the Sunset test gardens!
From ‘Home Depot‘, this rolling cooler ottoman backyard furniture project is both those things,(a cooler and an ottoman!) and a shot of bright color for a tired fall garden!
Our last two DIY backyard furniture projects are included for inspiration. They are both DIY’able, but they don’t have complete tutorials. This is where that wonderful loved one who is good with their hands will be really appreciated!
This deck bench has a very short explanation of how it was made, but all out of 2×4’s… From ‘Army Bones‘.
