Outdoor DIY Roundup!

Here in Chicago spring has sprung!  Flowers are blooming, the air is warm and our back door and windows are open.  This also means I'm able to set up our back porch - we don't have a backyard, so we utilize every last bit of space in our little 2 bedroom condo.  (On the bright side, this means fewer square feet for me to clean!)  Anyhow, I thought I'd round up some outdoor DIY projects that would bring some color and fun to our back porch - I can't wait to get started!

First a new place to sit - this lovely painted bench is just the ticket!

Now a place to eat!  Our porch isn't actually big enough for this table, but a girl can dream!

 How about an outdoor rug for under the table?  Yes!

 Beautiful dip-dyed biodegradable vases bring in more color and are perfect vessels for whatever!

  It gets dark out at night - let's create some ambiance with this lovely mood lighting.

Finally, with little people about, you don't always want full access to the porch, just the fresh air and light - this Dutch Door is just what we need!!

Hope spring has sprung wherever you are (unless, that is, it's already summer!)

Stay creative!
