21 Awesome DIY 2x4 Projects
Today I'm sharing a roundup of 12 awesome DIY 2x4 project to help inspire you to build without spending a ton of money! 2x4s are cheap and are a great way to make tons of different projects for your home. They might look a bit rough at first, but with a little love, you can make some seriously gorgeous projects out of 2x4s. Check them out.
Tylynn's DIY 2x4 picnic table for kids turned out amazing. I love anything in miniature form, and this adorable miniature picnic table is amazing. I wish we had room for (yet another) kid project outside!
My friend Lindsay made the cutest "slow down, kids play here" sign for her yard. Much better than those glow in the dark running man signs with flags my neighbor just put up...yeah, I said it. (Also, that cute little car got a makeover, too.)
I love this sand and water play table. It's very similar to the one I made, but using 2x4s makes it a much cheaper project. I also love that this project could be turned into an indoor play table for the winter, too. You could use dyed dry noodles and beans.
This DIY out door bar table built using 2x4s is such a great way to add more functional space to your outdoor area. If you don't want a bar-style table, you could easily make this a regular-height table.
My slatted outdoor dining table used 2x4s for the base. I spent a lot of time filling knots, sanding, and finishing the legs using an opaque outdoor stain. The top is made out of ipe, so using 2x4s for the base was a great way to keep the cost down! I also share how to drill a hole for a patio umbrella.
I absolutely love what Stephanie did with this DIY 2x4 color block table. How creative! You could customize this using whatever colors you'd like. It would be really fun to do this in pastels, bright colors, or black and white with a high-gloss epoxy over it as a finishing coat.
I'm digging this shelf-curtain-rod combo using 2x4s. I'm always looking for places to put more plants, and this would be the perfect spot for some trailing pothos—something that doesn't need a ton of light since it's above the window. The trailing would be gorgeous.
Unless you're totally new around here, you know I love projects for animals. We don't have a dog, but I love this outdoor dog cabana my friend Danielle made. I might only love it more if it's a cat cabana.
I love this easy idea for making your pantry more organized. It's a cheap way to keep things easy to reach.
