Before we know it, family and friends will be in our backyards and porches. In colder months, this doesn’t quite seem possible. But if you are a DIY-er, then you know that this is the perfect time to create great outdoor furniture.
One of the best things about DIY-ing your outdoor furniture is that you can customize it exactly to your specific needs. So if you have a large immediate family or extended family, it is super easy to DIY lots of seats for everyone – or even a larger table that you all can sit at. Many also prefer DIY outdoor furniture because they can easily compliment their house outdoor paint colors and overall decor style. We all know that outdoor furniture is typically found in a couple of colors, but certainly not every one you might want for your home.
If you are new to woodworking projects, ask a family member or friend to be your DIY buddy as you get started. You certainly may be confident to do any project you would like to, but having someone to ask a few questions in the beginning can be very helpful. You will also notice that most of these 40 DIY projects will let you know if they are ideal for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced, so there’s something here for everyone. If you are brand new to woodworking DIY, we recommend you look at starting with a classic bench project, which is smaller than a table or even a chair. Or consider making a small, outdoor coffee table, we have a few in here!
