Easy DIY Patio Coffee Table

It’s been a few months since we settled into our Ranch Home, and it was time to venture outdoors now that Summer had arrived. Don’t get me wrong, I love the inside of our new home, but I need some fresh country air.

We have a great outdoor living space but unfortunately, there’s not a lot left in the budget for outdoor furniture. You know, after the remodel inside. I’m broke. LOL

So, I did what any good DIYer would do; I went shopping in my storage shed. It’s the place where all the scraps and leftover goodies go until they find a new purpose, just like this amazing extra piece of butcher block that was leftover from our kitchen remodel.

I think it will make the perfect DIY coffee table top for our patio. Initially, I intended to add hairpin legs to the butcher block top and call it good but I wanted something a little more rustic to pull in that farmhouse feel.

What You’ll Need


As luck would have it, I found some old crates I had painted last year and used them as a porch display. THESE will make a great base for a DIY coffee table.

I almost feel like I cheated with this DIY. It’s almost too simple, but that’s how I roll. Why make it complicated when you can do it simply?

Here is all you need to make a simple DIY patio coffee table.

BAM!!! Instant DIY Patio Coffee Table Charm

You better believe I was over the top excited about how easy this was. And it was FREE! Well, free to me.

All I did was stack both crates side by side and sit that big, beautiful piece of butcher block right on top. No nailing, no screwing, no cutting, and no work! Nothing makes me happier.

Add your favorite table decor and enjoy.
