Beautiful Summer is in full swing and so is spending time outdoors.  It’s always fun to have an outdoor party, but it’s a bummer when you don’t have enough seating available for all of your friends and family.  With that being the case, a few weeks ago we made a couple of benches for my friends in Colorado and their new house and outdoor deck.  They love to have friends over to look at those beautiful views, but they didn’t have the right amount of seating.  That’s where this awesome DIY $20 Outdoor Patio Bench was born. To make this

A couple of weeks ago I visited my friends in Colorado.  This was such an awesome trip, and a different Summer vacation in the mountains versus what we normally do at the beach.  They had just moved into their house and my friend was wanting to do a few things while I was there.  One of those projects was this Simple No Sew Roman Shades Tutorial. I saw this project on Pinterest a while back and had it on my To Do list of things to try.  While I did a few extra steps (mostly for my sanity) the inspiration came

A few weeks ago my family and I visited our friends who live in Colorado. They had just purchased this beautiful picturesque home on the side of the mountain that has some incredible views. With a sprawling deck and some gorgeous landscape, they were lacking one simple thing to make it all perfect….seating!   We decided to make a couple of benches to add seating on their large deck, and a couple of beautiful diy adirondack chairs for their deck off of their bedroom.  They had a pair of plastic adirondack chairs that just were not fairing well with the
