One of the many diy projects done for the backyard makeover is the whiskey barrel lampposts. Having the tiny solar lights surround the fire pit is one of my favorite elements of the backyard. Originally I wanted larger bulbs but I have fallen in love with the tiny solar lights.
As a lover of wind chimes and one that doesn’t like to throw things away, of course I decided to save this old gal. Some wind chimes need a little more work than others, but I can’t imagine me ever throwing one out instead of repairing it. Do you have an old wind chime that needs some TLC?

Oh my gosh! I’m so excited to finally show you the reveal of my new backyard camper retreat. I’ve been enjoying time hanging out there all by myself–well Lulu Mae is with me.

I can’t remember when I was so excited about a bench. I’ve never made a bench quite like this one. Nope, it’s not a headboard bench, it’s make from a pallet. It truly is the sturdiest and most comfortable bench I’ve made to date. Yep, it’s going in my new backyard space. I hope you love it as much as I do.
A fun DIY challenge! Create a fun game that can either be played indoors or outdoors. I made a DIY Molkky lawn game. This isn’t a game I had ever heard of or played. I simply googled games and saw it, and knew that I would love to play it while camping. So, of course I painted it a pretty teal to match the decor of my camper. Where would you play?
It’s all about the backyard lately as I’m in the middle of an Outdoor Overhaul sponsored by my friends from Ryobi Outdoor Tools! My last update was all about the fire pit, and starting the paver patio. Most of this week’s update will revolve around a small back deck to disguise a set of concrete…
