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!
I've compiled a list of my favorite DIY patio furniture plans and projects, including a few from yours truly. 😉 Most of these builds only require a few tools, and you can even get the wood cut to size for you at the store!
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!
