Transform a deck or patio into the ultimate outdoor space for entertaining your family or friends. You will find this project budget-friendly and easy to do with basic DIY skills and tools.
Multi-purpose outdoor rooms are becoming increasingly popular as homeowners realise the potential of utilising outdoor areas to increase living spaces.
A free-standing structure doesn't require planning permission, but before you start this project, look at what you will need and what you want for your entertainment area.
If you like to entertain, plan for plenty of seating. If you have an active family, think about how the kids might utilise the space. Do you love outdoor cooking and grilling? Think counter space, storage and cookware.
Making a set of basic garden chairs is an easy DIY project that you can tackle in a weekend. Your local Builders Warehouse stocks a wide selection of PAR pine that you can use to design your own garden furniture.
Follow these instructions for a design that is sturdy, practical, and allows for adding on as many garden chairs as you like:
To make the seat frame, join the front, sides and back to the legs using small blocks of wood. Doing it this way allows you to conceal all visible screws.
Insert a batten or support beam along each side at a depth equal to the thickness of the seat slats, place the seat slats on top of the support and screw in place. The back is a section comprising legs/uprights and slats, which attaches to the seat frame.
