13 Amazing Outdoor DIY Projects: Outdoor Challenge

13 awesome outdoor DIY projects that are sure to get you outside.

I am so excited to be participating in an Outdoor DIY Challenge hosted by Remodelaholic. I love getting outside, especially in the Spring before its super hot and muggy.  It’s the perfect time to get things done and spruce up the yard after a harsh winter.  Whether I’m creating a new planter or putting in some new lighting it all adds to the overall curb appeal of the home. Big or small there is something to be said about tackling a project outdoors around the house.  So when the opportunity was presented to participate in an Outdoor DIY Challenge by Remodelaholic, I jumped at it.  I love being outside when its warm at night.  So I incorporate lots of solar lighting into my landscape.  For my project, I would like to share with you a tutorial on how to create solar-powered landscape lighting that you can customize to fit the style and design of your home.

My goal was to create a walkway of lights that have a coastal vibe.  In fact, these light stands were made to mimic a lighthouse.  I painted it to match my outdoor furniture and deck.  In this video, I show how I created my solar landscape lighting around my walkway.  And don’t stop there, once you’ve checked out my video on installing easy solar powered walkway lights, head over to the other 12 amazing blogs participating in today’s challenge.  You will find projects on how to redo your patio, how to build a bench, how to build a pergola and even how to make an awesome outdoor game.  These projects are all sure to upgrade your outdoor space this Summer.
