This post shares a roundup of 21 amazing DIY 2×4 projects, including furniture build plans, home decor items, and cute ideas for kids’ spaces.
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.)
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.
And now that you've built that bar-style table using only 2x4s, you're going to need barstools. These easy 2x4 barstools are a great solution. Just finish for outdoor use and you're good to go.
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.
Don't want to drop a dime on Brazilian walnut for the top like I did on mine? This easy 2x4 beginner's table is a great alternative!
My friend Toni made this awesome modern bench using 2x4s. This would be a perfect project for an indoor or outdoor bench depending on the finishing you choose.
And Toni also has you guys covered with plants to make this simple little 2x4 outdoor side table. I would love to take these plans and adapt them to make a plant stand, too.
Another amazing 2x4 bench from my friend Anika. She has so many amazing woodworking plans, so definitely check her out!
And what's better than a bench? A DIY fire pit bench made using 2x4s. And it's curved to give a wrap-around effect. All for under $100.
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.
This DIY craft table made using 2x4s honestly looks like something you'd pay a lot of money for at Restoration Hardware. I love the color and finish on this one.
This awesome DIY desk made using 2x4s is so beautiful. It's really hard to believe it was made for not a lot of money at all.
Don't need a full dining table or desk? This cute DIY console table made out of 2x4s is a great solution for a table behind a couch or a skinny entryway drop zone.
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'm obviously always looking for more ways to display plants, and this easy 2x4 plant stand from my friend Toni is a great solution. When you run out of space, you have to start going vertical!
This DIY 3-tiered corner plant stand is a great solution to maximize plant display space in awkward corners. You could use it indoors, too, and finish it any way you'd like.
This easy 2x4 storage bin is a simple solution for a playroom, closet, garage, or anywhere else in your home you might need a bit of extra organization help.
I love this easy idea for making your pantry more organized. It's a cheap way to keep things easy to reach.
