Outdoor Coffee Tables With Storage

Outdoor Coffee Tables With Storage – I wanted to tell you about the coffee table I made today for the backyard.

I didn’t document the build process (honestly, I put the thing together without knowing if it would work or not), so this isn’t a tutorial. But, you could easily make your own once you see how it’s put together.

I really needed a new coffee table, but the reason I chose to build this table was because of this guy.

Here he is a few months ago (MUCH smaller then) being caught with a bone in his chair. Look at those puppy skin rolls!

Archer loves pillows. He likes to sit on them when covered in mud. He likes to throw them around like chew toys. He likes to chew on his ugly bones while sitting on them, covered in mud. They were disgusting. I’m sure I could have stored them in the garage and pulled them out whenever we wanted to hang out, but really, who wants to do that.

So, a coffee table that doubles as cushion storage was born. 90% of the time pillows are stored in bulk.

I built the table with a hinged top so that I could store the cushions inside within Archer’s reach when not in use and then easily remove them when needed. I chose the X model open on the sides because I didn’t want spiders or other nasties to make a home in a closed box.

I made the table according to the size of my pillows so that it fits perfectly inside. For the base I used 2×2. Four corners cut to the desired height and then eight sides (four top, four bottom) attached to the corners. I used a pocket jig to attach the sides of the corners.

The X pieces consist of one long 2×2 and two short 2×2. I didn’t use any special tricks for calculating the angles, I just laid the 2×2 over the outside of the base and marked the angle on the inside with a pencil. Since they are only decorative and do not provide any support, they are simply glued and then nailed. NOTE: I filled my nail holes with wood filler and then sanded it before applying the weathering treatment. The filler didn’t take the treatment and now the filler sticks out like a sore thumb. If I could do it over again, I would have left the nail holes unfilled.

For the top I used 1×6s spaced evenly to match the inside dimensions of the table top, attached to two 1×2s with glue and screws. The top was then attached to the base with three hinges.

I used two L brackets on the opposite side to act as stops when the top is closed. I lined them up with 1×2’s that hold the top together so they are flush when closed.

To give it the aged look, I brushed on a mixture of steel wool and vinegar that I learned about here. I left it alone with no sealer for a few weeks but started to notice that the wood continued to darken where the sun was hitting it (I found out when I moved some lanterns I was sitting on top of and noticed it was more open where they were. village). I finished by lightly sanding it to even out the color and applied a coat of Thompson’s Water Sealer in Clear. So far I haven’t noticed any color changes. The image below is the most accurate for color.

Whether you’re relaxing on a hardwood deck next to your Weber grill or in a picturesque garden under a vine-covered pergola, cocktail tables are must-haves. Sofas and club chairs are built for comfort and lounging, so it’s important that any outdoor lounge set has a large surface area to keep everything close at hand. A cocktail table is a perfect centerpiece for the social terrace lounge area. You can use it to prepare food and drinks, play board or card games, or keep reading material close at hand. There are outdoor coffee tables with storage compartments and others with adjustable tops that allow you to raise the height to make laptop work more ergonomically sound. Some have trays to hold glass or ice, some have two levels, while others have built-in umbrella holes so you can slide in a market umbrella and be shaded from the sun.

Lounge furniture, whether for a covered porch, hardwood deck, or poolside area, can vary greatly in size and style. You must be aware that tables and chairs complement each other not only aesthetically, but also functionally. The modular sofa with chairs should coordinate with the height of the outdoor coffee table so that the items are not too high or too low. Lounge tables should also be made from the same high-quality materials that you require upholstered or cushioned chairs. Our luxury coffee table collections are constructed from eco-friendly teak, powder-coated aluminium, stainless steel and synthetic resin wicker. There are matching tops and others in weatherproof ceramic, high pressure laminate and tempered glass. These state-of-the-art materials will continue to look great and last for many years.
