75+ Things to Build with 2x4s and Other Structural Lumber
And just like that, we’re wrapping up another of our week-long series of themed posts… #2x4andMore is in the books, but never fear, we’ll have more building projects coming up because you know we just can’t quit 😉 In case you didn’t get the memo during all of our posts this week: structural lumber is sooo versatile for projects both indoor and outdoor, functional and pretty (and both!). So we picked some of our favorite things that you can build with 2x4s and other structural lumber a a sign-off to this week of great projects!
One of our readers shared these upcycled tailgate benches that he built — great job, Michael!
A few 2x4s come together to make a barstool or plant stand with this tutorial from Sawdust Sisters.
Refresh Living built this potting table from only 2x4s and a bit of chicken wire — love the green!
And this farmhouse table and benches by The Purple Hydrangea are both from all 2x4s as well.
The diagonal pattern on this bathroom vanity by Mylove2create is just the right touch.
Keep it simple with a 4×4 hose holder at Bower Power.
Let’s not forget that 2x4s make fabulous budget-friendly strong frames, like this built-in window seat bench by Pink Little Notebook.
Make your yard welcoming with a beautiful gate pergola like Two Feet First built.
DIY Huntress will show you how to make this bench for just $30 in materials!
How do you make a garden bench better? Add an arbor! Get the tutorial from Mylove2create.
Nobody’s patio table is COOLER than this one that The Handyman’s Daughter built — get it? 😉
Pneumatic Addict built this tiered display table for her porch, but it would be a great indoor table, too, for the seasonal decorations.
When you make a concrete table top like Uncookie Cutter, you need some sturdy 4x4s in the table base, and doesn’t it look great!
