Oh my gosh I literally squealed when I saw this project from Laura of Finding Home. She thought completely out of the box with this vertical herb garden made from an old door, galvanized bins and some serving ware for decorations. And I bet it smells delightful. This is a piece of art and quite brilliant..and functional!
Carmel from our Fifth House is back today sharing a super simple outdoor project that is sure to add some fun and whimsy to your outdoor spaces! Making a couple of tiered planters adds height and color to your porch or deck.
I want to be the first to introduce you to Tricia from Simplicity in the South. She is one of my new contributors and today is her big debut on Infarrantly Creative. When I saw her blog and her amazing style I reached out to her and begged her to be part of my team. I think you will realize quick how talented she is and you will want to spend some time over at her house checking out her projects.
Last year I spent so much time stripping and staining our deck, updating our outdoor furniture and creating a nice ambiance out there with our firepit table. However, when the kids would go to bed and Tim and I would sit out there the outdoor patio light was harsh and bright. So I decided to add some deck lighting with some rope lights from Lowes to create a relaxing environment in the evenings.
I built another project off of Ana White’s site. The cedar planter plan was one of the easiest builds for me. I am slowly building up my carpentry skills to tackle some new end tables for my living room. I was surprised at how quickly it came together.
I have seen some vintage dish and plate flowers on Pinterest and thought making my own from some inexpensive Dollar Tree glassware and Deco Art glass paint would add a pop of pizazz to my yard. These are so easy to make and it is really hard to screw it up. You don’t need to have painting experience to make this garden art. Just a few swooshes with a paint brush and some glue and you are all set.
I am not the first nor the last to stencil a rug. It is such a cheap way to make a graphic impact in a seating area. The girls from East Coast Creative guest posted here on their stenciled outdoor rug. After I hit publish I immediately went and bought the $18 indoor/outdoor rug from Home Depot. Add in three cans of spray paint and some fabric sealer and I have finally completed my outdoor living area.
