Sell on Houzz – Learn MoreHow much outdoor patio furniture should I buy?Before you head out to make your purchase, analyze your backyard or porch to see how much room you actually have to work with. In an outdoor space, you don’t want to overcrowd. Be sure to allow plenty of room for guests to walk around that beautiful farmhouse patio furniture or porch swing. If you have a larger outdoor space, you can always opt for patio sets. Patio furniture sets often come with five or more pieces — complete with outdoor chaise lounges, chairs, tables and sometimes patio umbrellas — so they can fill up your space in a fairly inexpensive way. Because they’re all part of the same outdoor furniture set, they create a cohesive, consistent look. If you prefer a more eclectic mix, or maybe don’t have room for two outdoor sofas and chairs, you can always skip the outdoor patio furniture sets and try individual items instead. Even just a pair of outdoor chairs or bistro table and chairs can do the trick. To provide a lot of seating in a small space, opt for folding chairs or outdoor stools and benches, which take up less room and can be quickly scooted off to the side when not in use.

It’s a totally GREAT table! However, I would’ve like to have seen you “bite the bullet”, so to speak, and use cedar or redwood for this specific project. The table would have cost more (still not anywhere near $2K) but those woods are much more appropriate for this table’s outdoor placement. It may not directly be exposed to driving rain, but it’s going to be subject to huge swings in temperature and humidity. I would be concerned that despite the waterproof finish, the pine will cup and twist.

I have been in serious need for an outdoor table to seat my family of 7.  When we stumbled upon a beautiful, long farmhouse table from Anthropologie, I knew it was love at first sight.

As we considered what we wanted for the space, we knew we needed a table to gather around for those big summer feasts. It would need to be a large table, around 7 feet long by about 3 1/2 feet wide. We knew finding a table that size would not only be difficult, but also a little pricey. We kind of had other priorities on the inside of the house with monetary choices. So we decided to build one.

This Picture doesn’t show it, but I did build a matching bench and grill table. For the measurements, I just cut the ones for the table in half and it was perfect height.

This is fabulous. I have been wanting a table like this for my dining room. Do you think it would work as an inside table? Also, I have never done wood working in my life, where did you buy your wood? Just a home improvement store?

Wow, that’s the cutest DYI table I’ve seen and so easy and straightforward to make. Wish I needed a new table at the cottage,or maybe a tree will fall on the old one he he! This definitely makes my pinterest board.

Oh my, I really like this table, alot! I would even like it for an indoor table. Great job on building it!!! I also really liked your family/picture blocks that you posted…they are awesome and on my list for next project. Keep up the great work, yours and ana’s projects are so inspiring.

We don’t have the space for a 96″ table. But I love this & want to make it 60″ long. What do you think?? Possible? Look ok? Tips? My 1st time posting here, can u tag me in ur response, please? Thx

This is beautiful. I’ve been wanting to build a new kitchen table, and came across this on Pinterest, while looking or inspiration. So simple, yet looks so awesome.

Holy hell! Seriously, Whitney?! You are never short of amazing. Love the table. If you want to come over and build me one, I’ll be happy open a bottle of wine and watch you get after it! Love you, friend!!
