There’s still a couple of months left to enjoy spending time outside and that means there’s still time to work on some DIY outdoor furniture to improve your patio, deck, or porch. These are simple ideas that will sure make a beautiful addition to your home. Plus, you can spend some quality time DIYing these over the weekend. They’re so much fun to make!

Weatherproof Side Table
This side table is great to make now and enjoy it all throughout the year. That’s because it’s made to be weatherproof! Let’s be honest here, it’s can be an odd project. I have to say I had never seen anything like this DIY before, but the important part: IT WORKS. Yeah, that’s right, so get your gears on and DIY this baby.
This patio bar from an old dresser is quite an amazing project, don’t you think? It looks incredible and it will be a great addition to a dinner party in your backyard! The project itself can be a bit demanding since you’ll need to sand and paint the dresser, but overall, it’s really cool to make it and see the transformation happening!
It’s not the first time we talk about hammocks over here and it sure won’t be the last! These hanging “chairs” are so awesome and relaxing that I just can’t help but add them to the list. There are a couple of different options you can make, some more similar to a hanging chair, and others as shown in the photo above, bigger and more appropriate to take a nap in the fresh air of the afternoon.
Pallets also show up a lot on outdoor DIYs, since they’re very practical to work with and make some incredible furniture pieces. This time, we have this awesome and cozy couch! Once made, you can decorate it the way that best suits your patio and it’ll be super fun to hang out there.
Painted Patio Umbrella
Now, isn’t this a nice way to add a pop of color outdoors?
There are some different ways to add a pop of color outdoors, like:
However, if you don’t want to go overboard with those, this painted patio umbrella can be a nice pick for you. It’ll not only add some color to your backyard, but also do what it does best: shade the area!
These ottomans are actually quite famous over the internet, I found several people that made them and there are lots of photos! Which can only mean they’re super useful and easy to make, right? So get your supplies and start DIYing!
Bonus: Corner Planter
Even though we’re talking about furniture here, I couldn’t let this corner planter go by unnoticed. It’s so pretty and adds a lot to your landscape. If you have the space and the green thumb, I’d say this is a project you need to try as well!
