Get inspired to tackle your own outdoor DIY and decorating projects after seeing my top picks from Outdoor Extravaganza 2018.
Hello, friends! Can you believe it’s almost June? It seems like just yesterday I was planning this year’s Outdoor Extravaganza and now it’s all over. Were you inspired by this series as much as I was? It was the biggest group yet, with 18 other bloggers joining in on the fun for this 7th season. Wow, time flies!
I loved seeing so many amazing outdoor ideas from my friends week after week.
In case you missed something, here’s a little recap of my outdoor DIY projects…
Week 1: Outdoor Plants & Flowers
Week 2: Outdoor Decorating & Entertaining
Week 3: Outdoor Paint & Build-it Projects
It sure felt good to get outside after a late start to spring. Thankfully, the weather was pretty good this time around compared to some other years.
Today, I thought I’d feature some of my favourite outdoor DIY and decorating projects from Season 7’s participants. I hope they’ll inspire you to roll up your sleeves and tackle some outdoor improvements of your own. Enjoy!
