Furniture can add a lot to an outdoor space and is really what brings the whole space together. It allows you have friends and family round, and on those nice sunny days have a BBQ and relax in the sun.
Garden sofas are becoming the popular choice for many families, however many also are opting for the more simpler and cheaper homemade furniture. Getting hold off old unwanted chairs and tables are the ideal place to start when designing furniture. Most scrap yards will sometimes give them away for free or for a small fee so it is definitely worth doing some research. All you then need is to sand them down, couple layers of paint and they will be looking brand new. If you want the rustic worn use you can use the sandpaper to bring out the grain of the wood. Remember to finish off with a layer of protective varnish to seal everything in and prevent paint becoming damaged from weather and use.
