I am DYING to touch up the stain and paint on our front porch (and the deck, ughhhh the deck) that has chipped and flaked off during the winter months. I think it’s finally (maybe? hopefully?) warm enough that frost won’t be an issue. Fingers crossed I can start attempting it this weekend.
1. Build your own wooden seesaw.
We LOVE ours and the kids still use it almost daily. It’s a big hit with the neighbourhood kids, too.

2. Freshen up your picnic table.
Ours is looking pretty bad right now, so this is on my list again this weekend.

3. Recover your faded patio furniture cushions.
This pin is white-hot on Pinterest right now. I guess there’s a lot of yucky cushions out there in need of a little TLC!

Strangely, our slide fell off the house over the winter — after staying firmly in place for YEARS. No idea what happened, but we need to put it back up because the kids love it.

Might not be warm enough yet for this, but you never know in Nova Scotia. We loved this water blob and plan to make another this summer once we’ve bought the tarps.

I love the fun backyard decor I made recently for our friends’ new house. I might make one for us, too!
