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!!

Here are some other great ideas from the other Lowe’s Creative Idea Bloggers:

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!

  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!

    Every room in my house needs a LOT of work. This would go towards either paint for our exterior or cork flooring for our kitchen. Kitchen floors would probably win out!


  3. Would love to win!! Thanks for the chance!
