In reality, there are low-cost alternatives, which will not guarantee longevity. Still, they will allow you to decorate your terrace with imagination, thus creating a unique and original environment. An idea to set up an outdoor space with DIY techniques is to create a Mediterranean-style terrace, characterized by objects and accessories of wood and terracotta.
For example, to make a coffee table and poufs, you can easily use old pallets, which are very easy to recycle and color and always guarantee a surprising effect even for those who do not have great manual skills. Alternatively, you can look for old chairs and stools, all strictly different from each other, in flea markets; clean them carefully, sand them, paint them with pastel or warm colors, according to your tastes, and protect them with a layer of flatting for wood suitable for outdoor use.
Dust them, remove any staples or nails, quickly wipe with sandpaper if there are imperfections, and paint them in the color you prefer. For a more summery and colorful result, you can decide to brush each stick in a different color to create a rainbow effect.
