This stick chair is excellent for sitting pretty as you enjoy the view from your front porch. Best of all, it folds up if you require it out of the way.

A rustic DIY farm dining table deserves a pair of cozy handmade seats --like these upholstered Parsons dining seats. A basic gun and upholstery needle secure the pillow to the timber frame. Pro tip: Before you put these chairs to use, spray them with two or three coats of Scotchgard to boost their stain resistance.

Chairs for the tiniest people in your life can get surprisingly expensive--and they're not necessarily tremendously well made.

Even though it was meant to be used on a porch, this DIY patio seat would add a healthy dash of style to any living room. The square frames encourage an angled seat for a contemporary yet rustic vibe. The use of a biscuit joiner instead of screws to the surface of the chair provides the design a clean, seamless appearance.
Want a no-frills chair for the patio or deck?

What is more, for all those who have rustic sensibilities, the chair's appearance will only improve with a bit of sunlight, wind, and rain.
Got a garage full of mismatched scrap timber? This is the project you have been saving it all for.
