Outdoor Inspiration and $100 Lowes Gift Card Giveaway!!

I love this time of the year! It’s time to enjoy our yards and patios and time for some great DIY projects!! I love being part of Lowe’s Creative Ideas.

Each month they give me a theme and a gift card and it’s a challenge and thrill to make something every month.

This month’s topic was Creating a beautiful and functional project outdoors.  I made an upcycled privacy screen (made from old sliding closet doors that were sitting in my garage ) and I learned how to tile by making some DIY planters with subway tile. So fun!!

The Idea Room — Make a DIY PVC Sprinkler

Somewhat Simple — Bug Catcher

Infarrantly Creative — Solar Powered Terrarium

Pretty Handy Girl — PVC Silverware and Flower Holder

Southern Hospitality — DIY Door Porch

Today’s Creative Blog — Dropcloth Patio Curtains

I Heart Naptime — New Outdoor Lights


And now on to the giveaway!!

You can win a $100 Lowe’s gift card to beautify YOUR home!

Have a Fabulous Friday!!


PS — It’s Friday!! And it’s almost time for the Weekend Wrap Up Party. I love it because I get to see YOUR ideas and feature YOU!! It’s my favorite day of the week. I hope you can stop by. The party starts at 6 pm. And I have a giveaway you are going to LOVE this week!


  1. First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to
    find out how you center yourself and clear your mind
    before writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

  239. We were just planning a little mini outdoor makeover for our yard. We’d like to add some patio pavers to extend the little stoop behind our screen door. I’d like to find a comfy chair to lounge out there under the magnolia tree while walking my dogs or watching my child blow bubbles.

  240. I could use some new front porch planters. This would be great!

  241. I would buy a tree and some flowers to spruce up our back yard.

  242. I need some serious organizing help. I’d be spending a gift card in the rubbermaid aisle!

  243. I LOVE Lowes! I’ve been wanting to build shelves for our office so a Lowes gift card would be fabulous!

  244. Any ideas for how to conceal an AC unit? Ours takes up so much room in our little 10 x 10 enclosed patio area (we live in a Baltimore rowhouse so that’s basically our backyard) and it’s so ugly! :-/

  245. I need to tackle so much in my home, but I think I would start with fresh paint for my living room walls and ceiling!

  246. Kristen says:

    My master bedroom needs some serious DIY…starting with a dresser we just found at a garage sale that needs redone!

  247. I desperately need to work on the outside of my home – mulch, flowers, and other things to help my curb appeal!

  248. I want to convert the garage into a studio (crafting/sewing/guest overflow). That is the next major project we’ll tackle. We are currently in the process of tearing up the tile in our new house to prepare the way for wooden floors.

  249. maureen says:

    We so need to replace a toilet in the master bathroom. This would be a help in purchasing the toilet.

  250. I would love some big pots with plants in them for my front porch. I just got new furniture from Lowe’s, but now I need accessories!

  251. I really want to stencil paint my room!

  252. I would love to refinish some benches I have outside.

  253. Sharlene Piscitelli says:

    I have a lot of painting to do and would love to update some cheap hollow core doors with molding.

  254. We have a couple of doors to fix and a couple new light fixtures would go a long way. =0)

  255. Maggie G says:

    I am going to try to build a craft desk!

  256. What a great giveaway! I could use some new railing on my deck.

  259. Renee A says:

    I would use it to make my backyard garden even bigger!

  260. I’d really love to use the giftcard to re-finish our kitchen cabinets. Painted white, please!

  261. I want window boxes!

  262. I’d love to finish up the fencing in our backyard, it will keep the dogs in and hopefully be pretty at the same time.

  263. I would love to add new lighting to my daughter’s bedroom…maybe a pretty chandelier.

  264. Livivua Chandler says:

    We had a drain to stop up outside which ran water back into the home turning our baseboard yellow and bulked up. We repainted but would really like to replace them

  265. Shirley says:

  272. We are working on our kitchen facelift- I want to put beadboard on the wall behind the counters!

  273. I would love to add some decorative touches around the pool.

  274. Oh how I would love to win a gift card from Lowe’s, they sure get enough of our $$ weekly. We always have projects going on around here. It’s a never ending list.

  275. I would love to paint some of the rooms something besides white. Or to finally start staining my concrete floors.

  276. We have only 7 weeks left to get the nursery ready – and I am in a panic that it isn’t happening quickly enough.

  277. I’d really like to work on our master bed and bath.

  278. we just moved into our new home last week, i have so much work to do on it, both inside and out! first up: vegetable garden–a deer-proof one!

    I wish you i could tell you how much i would do with this card. I’m wanting to build a deck in my backyard for my daughter. I’m crossing my fingers more than anything on this one.

  282. Margaret says:

    The front porch is next on the DIY To Do list. It needs a some attention.
