I have rounded up my favorite 7 easy tables and benches made with 2 x 4’s. I have discovered that building my own tables and benches is not only cheaper but gives me a great feeling of pride and accomplishment. Not only did I create something beautiful for my home but something that is useful for my home and I made it myself.
2 x 4’s are perfect for tabletops and for benches. Depending on the stain or paint that you use, you can create a farmhouse style table or even a modern table. By building your project yourself, you can create the piece to look exactly how you want and what will work in your home.
These tables and benches were built by some of my talented blogger friends and these projects are amazing. They want to show you that you can build your own tables and benches too.
The first DIY Table from a 2 x4 is created by Brittany from By Brittany Goldwin. She built this table herself and it is a perfect 2 x 4 project for a beginner to make. This table is beautiful and Brittany has an easy tutorial so that you can make this table for yourself.
Tylnn from Bitterroot DIY built a precious kid’s picnic table herself and it is perfect for the kid’s. I wish I had made this table when my kids were little. It is a perfect place for the kids to eat when you are entaining outdoors. Visit her blog to see how to make this table.
My friend Toni from Girl, Just DIY is so talented! I love all of her project builds and this Modern 2 x 4 bench is amazing. The best part of her bench is that she built it in less than 5 hours. That is my kind of project. Visit her blog to see the tutorial for her bench and all of her other builds. I can’t wait to see what she builds next.
The best thing about this project from Christine at The DIY Dreamer is that his outdoor table that can be used as a bar, dining table, and even a workstation. It only takes a few hours to build and looks like she purchased it from a high-end store.
I built this Easy DIY End of Bed Bench with scrap 2 x 4’s leftover from where we replaced boards on our deck. This bench did not cost me anything to build and is perfect for scrap wood.
Speaking of tables that look like they came from a high-end-store, The Frugal Homemaker built this table herself. Christina’s DIY table is stunning and looks so expensive!
