I don’t know about you, but given the choice, I would rather eat outside in my garden. It doesn’t matter if it’s a quiet breakfast with just me and the songbirds, or a big family get together, outside is better. But, I kinda hate my table. It’s glass, it’s not my style, and it doesn’t mesh with the outdoors well at all. So we found these DIY outdoor dining table projects so that we can all find a way to eat al fresco just a little bit more, and still have a styling’ backyard. Sound good? Thought so! Let’s get to it so you can pick one and get started!
