These amazing DIY outdoor table ideas will inspire you to build the perfect piece of outdoor furniture for your deck or patio this summer!
As the weather heats up, we love spending time with family and friends on our back deck. Over the years, I've built most of our outdoor furniture pieces that are custom sized to make the best use of the space.
If you're struggling to find the perfect dining table or end table for your deck or patio, why not build it yourself? Outdoor furniture is easy to make with cedar or pressure treated lumber that won't fall apart in the rain or snow. You even can give your table a bright pop of color with a few coats of exterior paint!
Whether you're looking for a full size outdoor dining table to fit the entire extended family, or a small end table to rest your drink, you'll find it in this list! All these DIY outdoor table ideas are easy to build yourself, even if you're just beginning woodworking.
