I don’t know about you but as soon as the weather starts to warm up, I want to be spending the majority of the time outdoors. With the start of Spring, thoughts go toward sprucing up those outdoor spaces for a little outdoor entertaining. Today, I am focusing on Spring projects that you can do to prepare for having guests over to enjoy the great outdoors. See ways to decorate and build furniture and accessories that will make your place the party spot of the neighborhood.
One spot, at out cabin, that we hadn’t spent a lot of time enjoying was our lower level patio. It was basically the spot to grill and store outdoor games and inflatables. To make the area a little more entertainment friendly, I cheered it up with some colorful seating, lighting, and a decorated old door. You can see the details of the chalkboard door at my patio makeover post.
Besides making over some of the items that you may already have, there are plenty of free tutorials on things that you can easily build for your outdoor areas. I’m passing on some of my favorite finds to you. With these Spring projects, you should find everything you need to ensure that the setting of your next outdoor party is picture perfect.
