DIY Patio Umbrella Stand/Side Table

Have you seen the prices for umbrella stands? They go as high as $400, even at Lowesโ€ฆ for an umbrella stand!It just blows my mind. Last weekend I built one for $15. Ana White has great plans for a Pottery Barn inspired umbrella stand/side table which Pottery Barn used to sell for over $300. I painted mine with some left over turquoise paint because I wanted a pop of color on my patio. The project is fairly easy, but there is a ton of cutting involved. Well worth it though, considering I saved a ton of money.

Here are a few pictures of my building process.

The few darker pieces are leftover 1x3s from my scrap pile.


I found an old PVC pipe in the garage which was a perfect piece to hold my umbrella. I poured Quikrete around it and let it dry over night.


Until I have time to build a patio table, we’re using this piece as the actual table. We’re not too picky in this house.


I am happy with my umbrella stand. I think it matches my DIY wall art.

    What a neat idea, especially for a small patio where you can’t fit a big table. We’ll be featuring your table over at Someday Crafts tomorrow. Hope you can stop by!

    That is a wonderful DIY project. SO many of us can benefit from this. Love the color too! I really need a shady spot and this would be so budget friendly.

      Thanks, Chrystal for the kind words. You are right about this stand being “budget friendly.” I cannot see myself spending $200 or even $80 on an umbrella stand. Thanks for stopping by.

    I came across this page on a random google search. I know it’s been a few years, but would you happen to remember where you got the black and white patio umbrella? I am looking for one just like it and am not having any luck.
    Thanks!

    Hello, I love the color you painted this…you wouldn’t happen to recall the name of the color would you?
