Summer is the time of the year filled with a whole array of outdoor activities and those traveling around, but there’s still a million-and-one different things you could do just from the comfort of your own backyard! All you need is a little creativity, a little bit of time and the desire to do something fun; for example, take a look at all these do-it-yourself backyard projects and you’ll find there’s a lot you can do that only takes minimal effort!
1. Backyard Movie Theater
If you’ve got the space on any one of your outdoor walls or a place to hang up a thick sheet, it would be incredibly easy (not to mention a blast) to set up a projector facing it for movie night. What’s more, you could lay out some blankets and pillows for people in the grass, allowing them to enjoy a film outside under the stars with the comfort of being inside. If you *really* want to impress then take the long cushions from a few outdoor chairs and you’ll have your own seats!
2. Table of Beer
For a more detailed project you could actually look at making your own outdoor furniture, and when you’re doing that why not throw in a section in the middle specifically for keeping drinks cold? Instead of having to worry about the cooler you can just dump some ice into the middle of the table you’re all sitting at with plenty of drinks staying cold.
You don’t have to spend a ton of money or travel to some semi-unknown location; just sit out somewhere you can actually see the sky, look up and enjoy yourself.
