Garden furniture in our summer cottages is often made from scrap materials. We invite you to get acquainted with the options for how you can make your own garden furniture. Some of them are quite simple and will require a minimum of cost and labor from you.

To make summer bring more joy to the kids, make a garden house for the children.
This house can be placed in the garden or even used as a bed for a toddler.
If the house is planned to be used under a bed, then its width should correspond to the width of the mattress.
Garden furniture from old furniture
If you are changing facades in the kitchen, then old cabinet doors can still serve you in the country. Such a table can be useful both in a summer kitchen and in a barn or on a veranda. It can also be used to store vegetables.
Two doors will become the basis for the table unit, which can then be tied together with a table top in the form of a regular board.
The back walls of the cabinets are reinforced with cross-shaped planks.
Often old furniture can be retrained into garden furniture at no extra cost. For example, like this old wardrobe.

Wooden boxes of any size and quality are a wonderful material for creating garden furniture in the country.

A variant of such a table on a wooden frame.
Fruit boxes are thin enough, but if you have a sturdy wooden box, you can make a table with a removable table top and storage space.
For the countertop, we make a wooden frame from four boards, which should go into our box.
We attach the boards of the tabletop to it.
To make it easier to remove the tabletop, we attach metal handles to it. In this case, the table top can also serve as a tray.
Nice and comfortable garden furniture suggests a slightly different approach than the usual furniture in your apartment.
Those interior elements that are appropriate in a city apartment may look like alien elements in the gazebo or on the veranda.
And what is made from scrap materials will be organic and appropriate in the country.
Country life always implies a more creative approach than ordinary everyday life.
Whether in the garden, greenhouse or shed, your garden furniture will be your reliable assistant. And the traditional approach of bringing everything that is not needed in a city apartment to the dacha will give you the richest source material for any original project.
