Add Elegant Seating

A high-arm bench in a classic French/European style gives any backyard a touch of vintage glamour. Luckily, with a few basic tools, you can create a high-end looking bench from a pair of old chairs, pine, or scrap wood. Find two identical chairs, remove the seats and replace them with a handmade rectangular base. This is a great upcycle project and one of our favourite backyard decorating ideas!

Hang a Hammock

If you have a small outdoor space, you can still take advantage of the fresh air with a slim hammock. We love adding accessories like an outdoor area rug, fun throw pillows, cozy blankets, and even a snack station to turn your backyard into a relaxing oasis.

Turn a Ladder Into a Garden

Not enough room for a garden? Use an old ladder to stack your containers and make a beautiful display. You can opt to paint the ladder a stunning shade of blue or a crisp white, or opt to keep it in its  current state, with spots of colour and traces of use. This inexpensive DIY project will make your backyard pop, and you’ll love having fresh flowers or veggies all summer long! 

Create an Outdoor Lounge

A mix of DIY and store-bought items make for the perfect lounge. Combine a gazebo from Home Depot with thrift store chairs and a refurbished couch for a cozy outdoor space. Get creative with a galvanized tub and a wire spool to make a cute coffee table, and voila, your whole family will love relaxing outside. 

Make a DIY Sandbox
