I am loving the vibe of this DIY outdoor privacy screen. You can easily make this divide with some recycled pallets. The string lights and hanging plants create a wonderful ambient setting. I’m already picturing myself sitting out here sipping on a glass of wine on a warm summer evening. How perfect does that sound?

Recycle your old car tires into trendy outdoor ottomans by covering them with rope.

DIY Stock Tank Pool
Uhm, excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor! This whole backyard situation is gorgeous! OK don’t judge me, but I’ve never even heard of stock tank pools until I read Sun Woven Studio‘s blog post on how she made one last summer. Now I think I need one. Not want, NEED! Her tutorial even shows how to cut a hole in the side and install a pump/filter which is super important. We’ve all seen those cheap plastic pools that turn into algae cesspools…not a cute look….Anyways I fully recommend installing a pump to avoid that situation.
