It’s full of great ideas in case you’re “inspired” to tackle your outdoor space after a weekend of hopefully being outside. So sit back and take in all the DIY creativity 🙂

There really is something so special and inspiring about seeing people take control of their own homes and let their creativity flow.

Ok, now Liz Kamarul is an amazing artist/designer. If you want more proof, check out her Instagram. She also has a deep love for checkered patterns (we are alike in that way:)) #foreverchecked

So in true Liz fashion, she decided to paint a mural on her wooden deck last year. She started by using two coats of paint and primer and then just let her mural develop naturally (I’m extremely impressed because I absolutely would have needed a plan. But that’s clearly the difference between artist and non-artist) . So if you like last year’s design, this is how she did it.

But this year Liz wanted to give her deck a fresh look and did this really cool checkered pattern in even cooler colors.

The lighter peach color is Sunset Drive by Behr and the darker color is True Copper also by Behr. This pattern seems quite user friendly. So if you’re looking to do something cool/modern to your outdoor patio, this might be it! Here’s a highlight on her Instagram that takes you through the journey with more tips.

It’s not a beginner’s DIY, but if you’re handy (or someone in your life is), you too can have a greenhouse like this. Ursula has a detailed materials list here , but for the cliff notes version, she painted her already large shed and then added this great little greenhouse to it using recycled windows to keep the budget manageable. So for around $1000 Ursula could make this little piece of heaven!

If you’re not quite at the DIY greenhouse level, she has a LOT of smaller projects that are much more beginner-friendly, like this DIY Copper Obelisk Trellis or this Garbage Can Privacy Screen .

As I was writing this post, I remembered that my dad literally just finished a VERY cool DIY project and really wanted to share. He didn’t say it, but I could tell he was excited to be featured:) So here is his new, completely homemade salt bath and shower:

“So my neighbor was getting rid of her claw foot bath. I thought it would make a nice outdoor bath at my place, so I bought it from her ($200 a steal). I figured a good spot was across from my guest quarters in the backyard (which I just finished) because I had access to hot and cold water. My girlfriend likes to take salt baths so I thought it would get a lot of use. I thought I could just drain it with a garden hose, but as fate would have it, I was very close to my sewer line. After some digging, there she was. What a blessing. I’ve never tapped into a sewer line before. When I did, I was immediately made aware of the definition of the term “faecal gravity”, yikes!
