My Fun Outdoor Projects For The Weekend
I had a brilliant idea to go on pinterest and type in outdoor projects for the weekend. Wow I was blown away with the thousands of pictures that came up. Of course I expected a lot, but this was just to many to go through. So I picked two I thought were easy enough for me, and could definitely be finished in two days.
The first one only costs $8! It is a back yard chair, made with one board. The reason I thought this was a cool project is it is stow-able, and will make an exceptional conversational piece with company. Also because there was no glue or nails involved. Me and glue do not get along! I had all the tools on hand in my shed; so I went to work and made a beautiful board chair. It was way more sturdy than I thought it would be from the pictures on pinterest. It was so easy that I went back to the store and bought two more boards, and made two more for company. I did three of these chairs in one day, which cost a total of about $24! I’m pretty proud of myself.
The next project I set my sites on was a back yard firepit. I have always wanted a firepit! I picture lots of company sitting around the firepit in the summer roasting marshmallows and having a great time. This was a fairly easy project, but laborious . I printed out the instructions and went to the store and the tire shop for all my supplies. Went back home and slaved away at digging the hole and setting up the firepit to look beautiful. In 3 hours I was done! It wasn’t picture perfect, but it will do for some good entertaining.
I am very happy with my outdoor projects for the weekend! I made 3 board seats, which I am still deciding if I should paint or leave plain, and made the backyard firepit I have always wanted! All in all it was a very productive weekend.
