Use an upcycled metal table frame to make a very colorful and useful table for an outdoor space. It’s easier than you think. I’ll show you how.
How to make aged decoupage milk can table tops. New decoupaged wood doesn’t match the rusty milk cans. Let’s fix that! EASY!
This oh so easy brass table makeover is a project that may inspire you to pick up a can of spray paint today! Painting is the quickest way to upcycle thrift store items.
How to make an outdoor coffee table using a repurposed fire pit. Pallet boards were the perfect addition to this metal frame to make this bright and colorful coffee table/ottoman for my backyard.
I picked up a brass vanity light at the ReStore in Nashville while visiting my grandson a few weeks ago. I got a great deal on it and decided to paint it and repurpose for the backyard camper retreat. I will be adding solar lights, but so far I’m not loving how it’s turning out.
It’s time for another collection of dollar store design squad ideas! My friends always amaze me with their creative projects. This month I made a moss basket solar light feature. Using glass prisms add shimmer!
Using reclaimed wood from a pallet and metal rods from old cribs, I made some DIY beverage holders with score pegs for backyard lawn games. The beverage holders are roomy enough to hold drinks, phones and more.
I love a great crib repurpose, and I don’t like having an outdoor eyesore like a gas meter. While doing my backyard makeover, everything was looking so nice that I just had to cover the gas meter. It’s nearly impossible to cover all of the things that hang on your house, but if you give your guests “pretty” options, they’re less likely to notice the other necessities of being a homeowner.
The great projects continue from the Backyard Camper Retreat. Today’s project is all about those Texas Lampposts. The tall 4×4 post sort of looked naked. To give them some omph, I added wooden bracket holders. Assemble the wooden bracket holders, then add an inexpensive metal bracket from the dollar store. Easy and oh so pretty!
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.
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…
It’s week 2 of the Outdoor Overhaul! I’m sharing how far I’ve come. Most of the time was spent completing the DIY Fire Pit! It’s coming together slowly, but surely. Hop over to check out the details and be sure to tell me how your outdoor overhaul is coming along!
