My backyard is the size of a postage stamp, and filled with dog poop and sorrow. Redoing it, however, is for another day. I'll get there at some point, and will then be all over these DIY outdoor tables. In the meantime, if your outdoor space is in better shape than mine, follow the links for instructions on how to make one of these yourself.
