Sun umbrella stands are used to replace a sun umbrella that doesn’t come with a stand. Outdoor sun umbrellas work very well with the addition of a matching outdoor base.
However, the outdoor sun umbrella with chandelier beds is ideal for making your base from scratch.
1. Square pole stand.
It is the simplest design, and it takes up little room, but you will need to secure the base in the ground with bricks or stones so that it won’t tip over. If you want a more stable platform for your sun umbrella, try making a square column out of four cement blocks and placing your umbrella pole through them using a long metal pipe. You can paint it yellow to match your pole or leave it plain if you’re going for an industrial look. This design also works well for children’s playhouses and swing sets too! Just add some extra bracing underneath if you plan on putting any additional load on tops such as kids’ toys or chairs.
2. Sun umbrella table
If you already have a piece of outdoor furniture, like a patio table or an Adirondack chair, drill two holes in the bottom and attach it to your stand with some screws.
3. Pole stand for swing set sun umbrellas
For this design, you’ll need to screw four boards together at right angles (90 degrees) to form a square that fits under the tabletop of the swing set. Place two pieces of dowel into two opposite sides of the square and then lash them together with some rope or twine. Screw one end of each piece of dowel into your base (you can stack bricks on top if you don’t have anything else available). Your umbrella will fit through any gap between these pieces. Choose carefully which ones you use.
4. Round pole stand for swing set sun umbrellas
This design is very similar to the previous one, except it has slightly more room. You’ll need to take four boards at right angles to form a circle, but this time make two holes in the center of it to thread your pole through. Screw one end of each board into your base and lash them together with rope or twine as you did with the square stand. Fit your umbrella pole through any gaps between the boards and screw on some Omniscience glides onto each leg to prevent scratching if necessary.
5. Sun umbrella table with stone umbrella stand
If you’re planning on placing this sun umbrella under a metal patio table or glass-topped one, it’s best to invest in a stone umbrella stand. Make sure you drill holes at the top and bottom of each leg of your sun umbrella stand to allow rainwater to pass through more easily.
6. Sun umbrella base for outdoor table
If you want an elegant, unobtrusive sun umbrella base that allows you to keep your tabletop clear, then this design might be perfect for you. Place the stand under the table and then place a tile on top of it. Drape some green ivy over the rim of the table, so it cascades down onto the tiles covering any gaps between them with greenery or even moss if you prefer. You can also paint the outside edge green if it doesn’t match your table or furniture, but this might be a little hard to keep looking good.
The steps are easy to follow, and it will be a better outdoor decoration. You can DIY by yourself or go outside to buy one if you don’t have time to make one.
