DIY Chevron Table Makes For Beautiful Summer Decor

Cool summer nights are, more often than not, best spent outdoors.

When Imgur user PixelsOnFire wanted to start throwing movie-screening parties in his backyard, he realized his outdoor space would need a bit of redecorating before it could comfortably accommodate his vision.

He decided to tap into his DIY-ing skills and build a low-sitting table, lined with pouf seating, and topped with a beautiful chevron pattern — a perfect party-friendly setup.

After framing out his table’s shape, this builder cut, sanded, and stained hundreds of small wooden pieces to line the structure’s top. Once he’d carefully mocked up his gorgeous zig-zagged design, he glued each plank in place, and covered the entire surface in can after can of polyurethane.

In just a few days’ time, his lovely low patio table was complete. Adorned with adorable lanterns and surrounded with cozy cushions, this builder suddenly gifted his yard a gorgeous new focal point, ready to house all sorts of fun summertime get-togethers.

Imgur user PixelsOnFire loved the idea of setting up a big outdoor movie screen and inviting friends over for a viewing party.

However, whilst gazing out upon his backyard’s present accommodations, he soon realized he didn’t own the right furniture to throw such a party. To make his dream at all feasible, he’d need some sort of patio table, around which all his guests could comfortably lounge and relax.

So, this crafty builder began constructing such a table — low to the ground to best optimize his guests’ movie-viewing sight lines.

To start his table build, this DIY-er framed out its structure.

He decided to include a cross-section support, for added stability.

To gauge his table legs’ heights appropriately, this builder measured the legs against the poufs he’d chosen to scatter around the table-to-be’s perimeter.

Once the table legs were in place, he began laying particle board across the piece’s top.

Then, it was time to chevron.

He and his lovely lady chose to adorn their table with a cute chevron pattern.

This dynamic duo worked together, cutting and sanding hundreds of different wooden pieces to bring their dream design to life.

They prepped a seemingly endless supply of wooden pieces, staining different pieces different colors, to give their design added intrigue.

Once every piece dried, they began mocking up their tabletop’s perspective pattern.
