Thinking of something to do for this year’s summer vacation? Well, it would be fun if you make your own patio furniture. And that would be a great DIY project. How would you like that? In case you decide to do this project, here are some of the tips and ideas that might help you in making your own patio furniture. Say for example you want to make your personal patio chair.
Draw a plan of the chair in the paper. Or there are available furniture plan that you can buy that has already instructions and list of materials and tools needed. Use this as your guideline when constructing the chair. When you have your plan ready, you can start collecting the materials you are going to use as well as the tools you will use for cutting the woods. Cut the woods in to pieces to the right measurement needing for that part of the chair. Group the pieces of woods according to part that they are intended to.
After you have prepared the materials, you can now start constructing the chair. Start building the frame of the chair and so on. Be careful in using the tools especially those sharp like saw, knife and others. Be careful in hammering the nails so that you can avoid unnecessary accident such as hammering your hand instead of the nails. After the chair is made, decide if you want to paint it or just leave the natural finished of the wood you used. Or for extra protection, apply a coat that has a UV protection for your chair that will be exposed to excessive sunlight.
As much as possible, enjoy doing your chair instead of forcing yourself to do it perfectly. Just as long you constructed it durable enough to support you while you are sitting on it, that’s the great thing about this project of yours.
After the chair is made and the coat gets dry, the chair is ready to use and you can now comfortably sit on your personally made patio chairs. And along with your other patio furniture, it is time to enjoy the summer night with barbecue and beverage together with your friends.
