It’s almost time to spend leisurely summer afternoons on the patio and these summer patio decor and DIY ideas will make any patio space all the more inviting.
Hey friends! Can you tell that I’ve had patios on the brain? Admittedly I get ridiculously excited for warmer weather to relax on the patio, anyone else? We’ve been working on a major overhaul of our patio and landscaping and so I’ve been perusing some of my favorite blogs for inspiration. These are some amazing ways to spruce up your patio… from small scale crafts to major builds, there is something for every patio and every maker. I hope you enjoy them as much I did!
Spruce Up Your Summer Patio
I made over this outdoor end table with outdoor paint, a DIY stencil and a protective resin layer on top and it has served its purpose as the perfect end table or even tray to eat off of if we’re sitting on the outdoor couch.
Clearly I can’t get enough of this color combo and have carried it over into throw pillows for the outdoor couch and this fun tray that I painted with the same outdoor paint colors. It’s been so handy to bring out meals and drinks to the patio in one (or maybe 2) trips instead of trekking back and forth numerous times.
DIY Pergola | Jen Woodhouse
Can you even stand it?! This pergola stunner is a DIY! I loved following along Jen’s progress as this was built and as usual, it did NOT disappoint.
Patio Living Area | Refresh Restyle
With this living area, there is really no reason not to live on the patio all summer… you have a kitchen, grill, TV and fans for days that are a little too toasty (as well as the beautiful covered area). This is pretty much my dream patio.
Relaxing and Inviting Outdoor Living Area | Atta Girl Says
I love how cozy this space is and the separation between the dining area and living area. It’s so inviting, even for big groups and how amazing is that candle chandelier?!
DIY Floating Outdoor Curtains | Southern State of Mind
We live on the corner so the majority of our yard is exposed to the street. We love this idea for when we’d like a little privacy and I love that it would offer some sun protection too.
DIY Tabletop Fountain | Crafty Lumberjacks
I so love this idea! We’ve been looking at fountains to complete the outdoor oasis we’re trying to create but none have been so pretty and unique as this one! I’ll definitely be adding this to my project to-do list.
Outdoor Furniture Makeover | Atta Girl Says
Just when I thought we were done with patio furniture I see this amazing DIY buffet table and yeah I’m gonna need to have it. This was a DIY! I love all of the thoughtful and charming details, from the hooks to the towel rod and even a bottle opener. Need.it.all.
Patio Decorating Ideas | Amber Oliver
I always love Amber’s color choices and her patio setup just make me smile. Not only is the decor on point but there’s a beautiful couch that she made out of a pallet. It’s perfect for a little cozy patio corner or against a wall.
DIY Tall Picket Fence Planter | Jaime Costiglio
Jamie is another woodworking master that I love to follow for incredibly creative DIY inspiration and future goals of skills I’d love to learn. She made this beautiful planter that looks perfect with the flowing fern.
