Outdoor furniture can be soooo expensive, but these DIY outdoor furniture plans will help you get the deck or patio set of your dreams on a budget!
If you’re just beginning woodworking, outdoor furniture is a great place to start! There’s no big sheets of plywood or tricky cuts to be made. Just a few 2x4s can get you an amazing outdoor loveseat or end table!

Don’t waste another summer without an outdoor furniture set! You can put these projects together in a weekend, and enjoy them for months and years to come!
