Weekend DIY: Outdoor Canopy

Outdoor Decor, Weekend DIY

The weekend is ALMOST here and we’ve got an easy and chic Do-It-Yourself project to tackle this weekend. If you want to add more shade to your backyard, but want to skip the umbrella route, try a colorful or patterned canopy. We love the color palette of this one featured below!

This easy and budget friendly DIY project is from the magazine All You. The main things you’ll need to pick up are: 5 5-gallon buckets, 3 80-lb bags of cement mix, some PVC pipe, 4 planters of your liking, a large bag of gravel, soil, bamboo poles, 3 yards of outdoor fabric, and plants. Many of the other supplies you’ll have on hand. You’ll also need two days to do this project as you’ll need to let the cement set overnight – so start this project on Saturday, and finish it off on Sunday!

Happy Weekend!

Pin Love: Bright Pops of Color

So it seems spring may officially be here – the robins are chirping, flowers and plants are breaking the surface and the snow is melted away! In honor of spring gracing our backyards, we came across this pin and had to share! We love the bright and bold pops of color that liven up this space.
