How to build a 2-in-1 picnic table and bench

Convertible Picnic Table Bench

We’ve featured one DIY convertible picnic table and bench before, but here’s another version that you just might find more suitable for you!

Convertible Picnic Table Bench


Unlike the first picnic table/bench we showed you, this piece of furniture has a simpler design (easier build) and is easier to use. In this one, you don’t need to lift and move the entire table and seat when turning it into a picnic table. All you have to do is flip its three parts and voila, you have a converted piece of furniture! It’s literally as easy as 1-2-3. 🙂 See what we mean by watching it in action through the video after our album below!

This DIY furniture only provides one-side seating when used as a picnic table but still, it’s perfect for outdoors especially with very limited space! If other versions take up a bigger space when used as a picnic table, this convertible picnic table/bench occupies the same space whether used as a picnic table or a bench.

Is this the perfect outdoor furniture for your yard?
