Creating a beautiful and functional outdoor space can add value to your home and provide a place to relax. We’ve got some great ones, from outdoor fire pit tables to concrete garden tables, if you’re looking for ideas on sprucing up your outdoor space!
Create a Concrete Garden Table
Concrete is an excellent material for outdoor furniture since you can create a table, bench, or another piece of furniture. In addition to being durable, concrete has a natural look that will blend well with your existing landscape or patio area. Concrete is easy to work with and comes in all sorts of colors. You can even paint or stain the concrete after it’s been poured into your mold. Concrete can be poured into a mold and allowed to set, or you can use concrete blocks to make your table.
Get a Rustic Log Coffee Table
Consider using a log if you’re looking for a sturdy coffee table that will last you for years. You can even use your wood or find a local tree trimmer who will provide you with the perfect piece of wood for your space. You can also choose from your area’s reclaimed logs or logs from mills or sawmills. If you are worried about termites and rot, ask around and find out if anyone had treated their wood before they used it; this may cost extra, but it is worth it if you have guests over often who will be sitting on the sofa near where the log is located.
Wood Pallet Chair
A pallet chair is a perfect example of recycling at its finest. You can use old wood pallets to make beautiful and functional furniture for your outdoor living space. If you don’t have some lying around, you might be able to find them at your local hardware store or thrift store. Just be sure they’re in good condition and won’t make your new project less sturdy (or unsafe).
Add Some Rustic Lighting to Your Deck or Patio
Lighting is a great way to add ambiance to an outdoor space. Here are some tips for choosing lighting that will look good, last long, and be accessible on the wallet:
- Solar-powered lights are less expensive and easier to install. You can find them in various styles, including lanterns, globe lights, and post caps.
- Battery-operated LED string lights are easy to use, and you can get them with different-sized bulbs if you want something more decorative than just plain white light.
- No matter what kind of light fixture you choose—solar-powered or battery-operated—make sure it has to be weatherproof so rain won’t get into any electrical components inside your institutions.
Paint Some Pots!
Painting a pot is easy to give it a fresh look, and you can do it in just a few steps. First, remove the bottom of the pot with your hammer. You’ll want to do this step outside if you have plants in it, so you don’t ruin anything. Then paint with a brush or roll on some spray paint before attaching your bottom back onto the pot. Once everything has dried, fill it with soil, flowers, or herbs!
Outdoor Fire Pit Tables
If you want to create a functional and aesthetically pleasing space, consider building outdoor fire pit tables. This can be as simple as taking an old coffee table and covering it with bricks to make it sturdier or as complex as building one from scratch.
As with any DIY project, you want to ensure that your new furniture will last. To do this, ensure the materials are high-quality, and the design is sturdy. You might also want to consider investing in some kind of cover if you live somewhere where weather conditions can be unpredictable.
We hope these ideas have inspired you to spruce up your outdoor space. Whether you’re looking to get creative with paint, add some greenery or create a concrete garden table, there are many ways to make your patio look great! Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
