Enrich the Look of Your Deck or Patio with Custom-Crafted Wood Furniture
When you think of outdoor furniture, you may envision a glass-topped patio table, plastic chairs, and resin chaise lounges. Admittedly, this is a comfortable patio set up for family and friends. Want something different? Wooden outdoor furniture can make your patio or deck look amazing.
Also, you can construct pieces of wooden outdoor furniture with leftover wood found around your property. This is a great way to make creative use of old wood that you would usually throw away. If you don’t have any leftover wood but would like to build some wood furniture items, call your local tree care company for some.
Take a look at some ideas for leftover wood!
A Pallet Table
Do you have any empty pallets in your garage or storage shed? If you do, you have the needed materials for an outdoor coffee table. This table can be constructed with two pallets of any size. The building involves putting two pallets together with small wood blocks of wood and using sealant on the table to shield it from moisture. Be sure the pallet on the top has an even surface that will hold plates and cups. You can either put your pallet table on the ground or fasten casters to it so you can quickly move it around the patio or deck.
A Table Thanks to Wood Wine Crates
Also, wood wine crates can be used to make a table. If you have a cozy backyard area, you might choose to create a table with two little wine crates. On the other hand, if you desire a full-size table, you can use four big wine crates. Regardless if you build a big or small table, you will need to apply a coat of sealant on the wood to safeguard it from the rain. Leave the illustrations and names of the winemakers to bring a little more intrigue to your creation.
Lastly, all your wooden furniture pieces must be kept clean, so they stay in top condition. Use a mixture of warm water and mild soap to eliminate dirt. Then, put your items out in the sun so they can completely dry.
