I love bonfires and campfires! I don’t love stuffing tons of newspaper or chemical logs to get a good hot fire started. I made some awesome fire starters out of wood shavings. Check out out the details about making your own fire starters on the blog.
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.
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. It’s so nice and quiet and nobody knows I’m there. I’ve even been watching t.v. in the evening. Yep, the camper has a hookup outside. I hope you enjoy the tour.
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?
I’m participating in an Outdoor Overhaul with Ryobi Tools USA! I’m already a huge fan of their tools in my shop and regularly use their outdoor tools too. So, to say I’m thrilled about this project is an understatement. There are prizes! Today, I’ll show you the dreaded before of my sad, sad backyard. I’m hoping in about a month, you won’t even recognize the space!
You may not know this, but up until this year, I’ve never been a camper. Sure, I went to the “lake” a few times when I was a teenager and stayed in a mobile home with friends’. But actually traveling around from campground to campground has been an eye opening experience. Camping with dogs has been a new experience too!
Just because you may live in a tiny space doesn’t mean you can’t be more organized. The messy cords and outlet plugs in the camper needed to be controlled. I came up with a small wooden valance that disguises all the cords and the power outlets. Adding a stencil, or in my case a Chalk Couture transfer was just what this project needed!
I’m sharing some tv tables that I updated for the camper. Space is very limited in my Vintage Cruiser so I have to have items that are dual purpose and easy to store. The folding tv tables are perfect for this very reason. They can be used indoors or outdoors and easily fold away for storage and transporting.
This spray painted outdoor rug project is so easy, you can do it this weekend! I’ll give you tips and tricks to get great results when customizing your own outdoor rug with spray paint and stencils.
For this month’s Dollar Store Design Squad I’m showing you how to set up kitchen and bathroom areas using items from the Dollar Tree. There are so many inexpensive items available for just a buck that are just as good as what you might find in a department store. Great for RV’s, campers, a new apartment and more!
