40 DIY Outdoor Projects for your Backyard

With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about DIY outdoor projects. YAY!

I always find it relaxing working on outdoor projects.

They have me dreaming of all the wonderful time we will be spending outside during the summer. Especially this year with the never ending winter we had.

We have already completed our first outdoor project this year. Did you see it yet?

We made a barn quilt door! Goodness do I ever love it. It’s so fun and bright!

Our next project is to build an outdoor bar table with stools. The table won’t be for a bar per say, but we like the idea of having a table that’s elevated.

Something like this table, but perhaps without the cross bar underneath.

Just the thought of having supper outside with my little family sitting at the table we built together, makes me happy.
