DIY Patio Umbrella Stand Tutorial

We’ve been operating hard on polishing up our backyard this summer. I got a sweet deal in this cute striped patio umbrella for $35 from Walmart that I knew would jive with our style perrrfectly. I was super enthusiastic about it until…well, I had never bought a patio umbrella before, so I had no idea that a. it wouldn’t include a stand duh Delia and that b. sturdy, high first-class stands are $$$.


I know rookie mistake. I scoured the web and local stores and came up with very nearly two options: either reasonably priced stands you fill with sand that many folks didn’t put forward, especially for the windy area we live in; or, very nice, really costly stands for over $100. There were some in between alternatives, but they came with really bad online comments. I didn’t feel like losing $65 on anything that can become a shipping/returns headache. My budget friendly deal on a new umbrella wasn’t browsing so budget friendly anymore. Home Depot sells smaller 2 foot sections of PVC pipe in white and black, in various widths for around $3.


You should purchase the white and spray paint it to the color you wish. Luckily I needed black, so I saved myself a step and just bought the black PVC pipe. Try to get a PVC pipe it is as near the size of your umbrella pole as feasible, in order that it doesn’t rattle from side to side. We’ve already had a few meals al fresco and I am absolutely digging it. This is our first time having a yard to really make our own, so it feels pretty superb!Sources: Table and two white reclining chairs are from IKEA the table comes with add on leaves so it can seat 10+ , we like it!, shade cloth garden out of doors chairs are from Walmart. com, patio umbrella is from Walmart.
