Patio seating area with patio furniture, a fire pit, and concrete patio stones.

Lay the Groundwork

Start by laying concrete patio stones (#477094) as the foundation – these concrete stones create the look of cobblestone in an easier-to-install 16-inch × 16-inch form. Group outdoor furniture pieces—DIY and store-bought—around a fire pit (#749279). Sectional furniture lets you create the best seating arrangement for your space and gathering. These allen + roth™ Blaney patio pieces (#609557, #609558, #609559) feature steel frames wrapped in all-weather wicker for a sturdy and stylish look. Cushions covered with outdoor-tough Sunbrella® fabric provide extra comfort while resisting stains and fading.

Build wooden outdoor stools as part of a dining set or for extra seating.

Score Box Seats

Get a deck-matching modular look for your patio gathering space by making these stylish and versatile patio stools sized to fit Lowe’s cushions. You can build one in a day for about $35 plus paint and the cushion.

Wraparound ledge for outdoor television and outdoor dining.

Open a Concession Stand

When you watch the game at home, you don’t miss a minute of the action in line at the concession stand. This customized wood ledge wraps around an exterior fireplace wall to provide a serving/snacking counter for refreshments—and a spot for the TV. Add front-row seats by spray-painting outdoor-friendly stools to match the color scheme, and chill beverages in an 80-quart steel cooler (#416440, model #90010RD).

DIY pub table and painted metal bar stools.

Build a Touchdown-Friendly Table

Indulge sports-bar-style snacking and dining outdoors by building a simple pub table in a design that complements existing deck framing and supports. For an even more consistent look, stain the tall table to match the color of the deck and other outdoor furniture pieces.

DIY cornhole board and drink stand.

Keep Score of the Game

Before or after the game, try your hand at a tailgating tradition—beanbag tossing, a.k.a “cornhole” or simply “bags.” You can build your own regulation-size boards and stain them to match your outdoor decor. Pair the board with a DIY drink stand that features built-in cup holders and a scoreboard for bag toss games.

Bar-height deck post table.

Make a Goal-Line Stand

Use an existing deck post to anchor a bar-height table perfect for snacking and chatting. Build the table yourself and stain the wood to match your deck.
