This beautiful DIY design is the perfect size to fit in with your existing outdoor setup but packs a hidden surprise. Simply lift up the top of the table to reveal a drinks cooler hidden inside. Stock the cooler with your favorite drinks and use the table top as a serving tray!
Make a Pond
Everyone has that one corner of their backyard that gets neglected. Bring that forgotten corner to life by installing an eye-catching, tranquil and beautiful water feature. Ideal for creating your very own outdoor oasis, a small pond can become a focal point that you and your family will enjoy for many years to come. While some homeowners may think that a pond is a huge undertaking, all it takes is a couple of days before you’ll have it up and running.
Install a Porch Swing
Prepare for those long spring days and warm nights by swinging lazily on a new cushy porch swing! While benches and patio chairs are great, nothing is quite as nice as swinging next to a loved one or curling up with a good book in your swing on a beautiful spring day. Make your spring porch swing green by using recycled materials or go all out with something a bit more snazzy and use twinkly lights to string along your design.
Build Creative Flower Beds
Are you sure to bring home more flowers than you really need from the garden show? Get creative in your backyard by building a few new interested in flower beds to show them off. Natural touches are the best way to breathe new life into a neglected backyard space. So go wild with a fancy new flower bed design or add some height to the space with a few mounted baskets full of blooms.
Add Some Curtains
Interested in separating your outdoor space from the interior of your home as the warmer months approach? One simple way to clearly define your outdoor living space is to put up some DIY patio curtains. Choosing a bright and decidedly spring-like design for your curtains can quickly add depth to any patio and help to keep the suns rays at bay.
