Garden Furniture Possibilities:

  • Breakfast Tables. A colorful, versatile breakfast table is a must-have if you plan on doing any entertaining in your new garden.
  • Morning Chairs. To go along with your breakfast table, your garden needs simple chairs with bright colors. IKEA has over 15 different styles available.
  • Hammocks. Perhaps the best piece of garden furniture you can add is a hammock for relaxing naps in the afternoon.

When you attempt to assemble your garden furniture, there are a few ideas to help make the experience more enjoyable. IKEA provides a hearty instruction manual that you will want to keep close to you as you complete your project. Here are some other things you will want to keep in mind.

Garden Furniture Assembly Tips:

  • Take Time. To keep from becoming frustrated, make sure that you give yourself plenty of time to complete your garden furniture project.
  • Be Careful. Take caution that you don't strip or lose screws, as IKEA doesn't provide extras.
  • Get Help. If you are instructionally challenged, don't be afraid to ask for help in interpreting or carrying out complex instructions.

If you enjoy working with your hands and spending time outdoors, putting together do-it-yourself garden furniture might be just the project for you.
