Biergarten dining room

I really like german beer garden benches and tables and always wonder why more people don’t use them in interiors- they’re sturdy, cheap and look great. This is another image I found whilst scouring Pinterest, from a blog post looking at five examples where they are used indoors.



Items ready and waiting for you to purchase from our Great British HighstreetInteriorLooksBUY4

A bit more work, but with a box of bits and tutorials a click away, you can create something by hand and at a fraction of the price of buying new

InteriorLooksDIY4Just one job that it pretty integral to the whole look.

Find a trestle table and bench set like this one on Amazon for £56.71 (I am amazed it this price- vintage sets go for hundreds online, this is also a complete bargain compared to buying a dining set).

Using a spraypaint suitable for metal, use this tutorial for tips and paint the metal legs of the set.

Distress the wooden bench and table tops. There’s some good ideas here.
