Do you enjoy DIY projects? Around our house we absolutely love them. Besides being fun to do, one of the reasons we love to DIY is to save money. So many of the things that we have changed about our home we wouldn't have been able to change if we had hired someone else to do the work.

With spring arriving (even though it's still snowing today), my mind has been filled with DIY projects that I want to do in the garden. Number one on my list is to build some raised garden beds for square foot gardening. Second on my list is to create an outdoor "living room" of sorts in the back corner of the yard.

Now in color!

This corner now has a poured concrete pad, but as you can see, it's the perfect spot for an outdoor living room! Plus, like I said, we sure love a good DIY project!


  1. Before we moved, we had a gazebo/ pavilion with screen curtains ( at my parents house) that we set a patio table and chairs in with lights hung on the bars inside. We used it for most of our meals and activities when the weather was warm enough. One side had a canvas screen you could roll down to block the sun. It was worth every penny!!

  2. We have a gazebo structure that we can put up. I got it on sale at the end of the season last year. I am so excited to get our backyard all nice and usable for the summer again!
