There are many reasons not to spend big money on your dream garden furniture. And the main one is that you can do it all yourself. Tables, shelves, poufs, benches, hangers, stools and coasters - choose whatever you like!
Coffee table made of boards
Ordinary glued timber boards and bent metal legs acquire a special gloss and chic in this design. At the same time, not so many boards are needed as it seems. Instead of them, small blocks are also used, laid in a checkerboard pattern. If all the materials are "cut out" beforehand, then it will take only a few hours to create a table.
If your eyes are already on fire, drag the dry tree out of the forest. Remove the bark, file the branches, treat them with antiseptics from uninvited guests, and then paint them in the desired color. That's all, the hanger is ready. It remains to pick up a heavy base and a strong pin on which the tree is "pricked". For those who cannot find a suitable tree, a picturesque log with "hooks" from separate branches is also suitable. If the joints are well disguised, then no one will notice this innocent forgery.
Universal "swivel" shelf
Do you need a wall shelf? Pay attention to this original version. The six boards demonstrate an amazing ability to "walk around corners" while remaining functional.
Gabions (mesh structures filled with stones), which are so popular in landscape design, play the role of the base of the table in this small masterpiece. This immediately gives the garden kit some kind of industrial style. At the same time, rustic motives of wood and river stones allow him not to argue with the surrounding nature.
Cup holder for sofa
This small furniture invention will not be a universal solution to all life's problems, but it will allow you to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while reading a book on the couch. The stand can be made of chipboard or wooden boards. Choose the color for the furniture you already have.
Two chairs - one bench
Two old chairs can take on new life in an unusual way. To do this, they are placed opposite each other and "sheathed" with boards. The more beautiful the backs of the chairs, the more original the handles of the bench will be.
Glowing log stools
The comfort in the garden is made up of little things. And you can create it with the help of such unusual log stools. Remove or leave the bark, but the upper part must be sanded so that it can then be covered with fluorescent paint. At night, these stools will turn into "fireflies" as soon as a ray of light hits them. Now friendly stories around the campfire will take on a mysterious meaning.
Pouf made of plastic bottles
Plastic bottles hidden inside the pouf will not bother even aesthetes who do not recognize the use of this material for the manufacture of decorative items. The number of bottles depends on the desired size of the ottoman. They need to be washed, dried, and covered with lids. After that, lay in a circle, "tying" tape each row. Cut two identical circles from thick cardboard or plywood. Place plastic bottles between them, once again fix everything with tape. Cover the sides and top with foam rubber. And put the pouf in a specially sewn cover.
Simple bench without nails
If you don't want to spend a lot of money on a bench, make one with simple building materials such as concrete cinder blocks and wooden slats. Lay the blocks in the L-shaped sidewalls, "gluing" them together with liquid nails. Then "thread" the strips into the holes of the blocks, like a thread through a needle. Add pillows and enjoy the pleasant outdoor seating.
Wine barrel sink cabinet
An old wine barrel will suit those who love vintage and dream of something original. For such a pedestal it is not important whether there are "holes" in the wooden part. She plays a decorative role. The internal space is given over to functional things - water supply and drainage, hoses, siphon, taps. All this is carefully covered with a door made of cut boards from the same barrel.
Bench or chaise longue for two
Natural materials are not the only virtue of this bench. The rounded seating lines provide comfort unmatched by standard options. If the bench still feels hard to you, use some decorative pillows or a small mattress. And don't forget to cover the plywood and wood planks with water-repellent treatments.
Flower pots table
While walking around the garden center, grab a couple of plastic flower pots and a metal tray. From these things will come out a very light table that can be used both outdoors and in the house. If you do not want to drill the planter, just assemble the slide, as shown in the photo. For a permanent table, connect the planter together with a long bolt and nuts. Seal the joint between the pots with putty. Cover with paint on top.
