It’s here! Well…almost. Spring is at our doorstep, and I don’t know about you, but I cant wait!
To get you prepped for spring, I’ve rounded out some of my fave DIY outdoor/backyard projects & maintenance from the past two years.
Wooden Outdoor Furniture Maintenance
Taking care of teak and other outdoor wooden furniture
Reclaimed Wood Easy Outdoor Table
Taking an old work 2×12 and turning it into a simple outdoor table with a shelf.
Perfect for holding magazines & a cold drink.
Drop Cloth Outdoor Drapes
Turning inexpensive hardware store canvas drop cloths into custom outdoor drapes.
Painting a distressed Ghost Sign Wall Mural
You know those faded shop signs & ads on the sides of old buildings?
We painted our own on the side of our urban garage.
BBQ Area Facelift
Using inexpensive deck tiles to give a new lease on an old bbq area.
Backyard Horizontal Slat Fence
A weekend project building a modern horizontal slat fence.
Really, its easier than it looks!

Love the fence. Did you find your version to be more or less expensive than those pre-made wooden fences for sale at Home Depot or Lowes?
I think the fence turned out cheaper than the pre-built ones. But I couldn’t tell you for sure without looking it up myself. Generally the raw lumber cost will work out less than a pre-built product.
