1. Pallet Farmhouse Table

Your patio has to have a table which goes well with a relaxing rustic aesthetic. This pallet farmhouse table is perfect! A good table not only improves the design of the patio but also encourages people to gather ‘round and share good stories.


2. Outdoor Arm Chair

Of course, for every patio, a good outdoor arm chair is necessary! This is one of those DIY wood projects that can go in almost any part of the house. But look at how relaxing that looks! It definitely belongs in the outdoors.



3. Wood Deck Cooler

Some people I know have tried to put a mini fridge in their patios for all their beverage needs. But this involves complicated wiring, extension outlets, and, not to mention, a breaking of aesthetic. This wood deck cooler is a simple DIY wood project that can solve this problem.


4. DIY Wooden Camp Chair

This type of wooden chair seems to belong to DIY wood projects for camping and beach trips. But firepits can be made in patios and your outdoor space is certainly just as relaxing as a beach, if not more tranquil. This DIY wooden camp chair is the perfect furniture to embellish your patio with and complete its zen atmosphere.

Nobody likes getting up to get more drinks while the conversation is in full swing! Thanks to this table with a built-in cooler, no one would have to! Putting this in the center of your patio guarantees weekends full of unforgettable moments with friends and loved ones.

If you’re lucky and your patio happens to be built near a tree, then this patio day bed is for you! But you could also make wooden posts to support this pallet swing bed. After all, inventiveness is what DIY wood projects are all about. Sleeping like a baby on this pallet swing bed will be your reward for your hard work!

Sometimes, we tend to forget that our patios still rest on a soil and grass.

9. Wooden Crates Storage

Have you ever wanted to decorate your patio with plants and other trinkets, but you don’t want them to take up the floor space? I’ve had this problem for a while, but I finally found the solution: wooden crates storage! They hold everything you want to include in your patio without ruining the aesthetic! Adding paint is also a nice touch!

10. Wooden Day Bed

At last, my favorite among these DIY wood projects: the wooden day bed! The pallet swing bed is a genius idea, but sometimes I prefer an old-fashioned day bed by the corner where I can rest and take a break from the million things I have to do.
