Simple Patio Furniture Projects


Before you begin a do-it-yourself project for patio furniture, there are a few considerations to keep in mind. One of these considerations is to not become overwhelmed by all of the details. Not every project is complex and there are a variety of possibilities when it comes to DIY projects. The projects listed below are all designed to complete in a week-end and you can have some fun by adding in your own style.

Garden Bar

Outdoor bars are considered an ideal project to really start off your summer in the right way and it is a really easy project to participate in. These bars can be made up from scrap timber or pallets and your bar top could be made out of roof joists and then finished off with some yacht oil.

DIY Hammock

Hammocks are still a favorite for adults and children alike and they are easy to make yourself. To make as DIY hammock you will need fabric, twine, zip-ties, canvas, leather strapping and fabric such as a blanket or a towel.

Comfortable Seating

If you already have an outdoor bench on your patio that lacks comfortable seating, make your own out of wood pallets. These pallets are ideal for such a project and all you need to do is to cut them to the correct size. Place them together and build up the right size seating area.

DIY Bench

To build your own bench for your outdoor patio use a few concrete blocks as the supporting-structure for each side and then insert as many wood slates as you need through them to make up the seating area. To make the seating more comfortable cut a mattress to size and add in a few cushions.


This piece of furniture is also easy to construct out of pallets. Use the pallets to create your sturdy base and then add in a few metal pipes for the side parts of the daybeds frame. You can also choose to use casters to make the piece of furniture easy to move around.

Pallet Swing Bed

It comes as no surprise that you can build just about anything out of wood pallets. To make this project construct a frame a bit bigger than your mattress you intend to use. Now use hooks and ropes to suspend the bed and add in a few cushions and even a blanket.
