I love my patio, but I don’t love how easily my neighbors can see and hear me and my guests back there. A privacy fence help solves that. You can do a hedge, a curtain, or even frosted glass. You could also add a water feature to get some white noise.
Build this party-ready table that will fulfill all of your summer party dreams. The strip down the middle is for ice so you can keep drinks cool and fresh. You could also put succulents or other plants in it, but I think the drink cooler is a lot more practical.
Lights make the patio, I’m not kidding you. If you have bad lighting, the party won’t last much longer after nightfall. But if you have trendy and cute lighting, you guys will be out there all night! Choose from a plethora of choices for your patio.
One of those options is to make some DIY tiki torches. You can hang them on the wall or put them in the ground. Some can even be made with citronella oil to repel mosquitos and other bugs.
A swinging chair makes the patio perfect. It’s such a fun place to relax and hang out during the day. My kids love our swinging chair, so you might want to build two!
If you like to entertain your guests on your patio, then you want to get a bar cart for the backyard. It allows you to get, refill, and freshen up drinks without ever having to step back inside. Trust me, everyone will love it.
A storage ottoman is a great addition to any patio because it opens up space. You no longer have to have all of your blankets and pillows crowding up all the spots. Just put them in the ottoman and pull them out when you need them.
The second I saw this project, I knew I needed it. A giant day bed is pretty much the best thing ever. It looks so cozy! I can see myself relaxing on this thing when the kids are at school and just reading my favorite books (because us moms have SO MUCH free time).
To give your patio a more seasonal feel, why not make some seasonal pillow covers. They can be as simple or complex as you need them. A pumpkin silhouette or an expansive Halloween sky. It’s up to you!
Build your very own planters for all the flowers and veggies you want to grow. Try different materials, use different colors, and just have fun with it! You can always replace the planters when you get bored.
