Another said, "Fantastic idea! I’m looking for a table setting for my back deck and everything that’s nice is so expensive!!"

"This looks amazing and how special that you and your dad made it together," someone else wrote.

Others tagged their friends and family about building their own version.

Another asked how where the chairs and rug were from, with the poster responding that the chairs were $50 from IKEA and that the rug could be found at Temple and Webster.

When it came to the legs of the table, the poster revealed that they can sometimes be difficult to find, so you'll need to scour your local Bunnings store for them. Photo: Facebook

"I think they may be a special item but seem to come back periodically - they had square ones before and then these," they told a curious commenter.
