Canadian Home Trends DIY Editor, Nicholas Rosaci, shares some of his favourite patio ideas for summer!
1. Colour Wheel
Save old tires from the landfill and create a trendy or a rather “thready” painted coffee table. Simply spray paint old tires in a whimsical hue and top with a glass table top to create a colourful showpiece! ~ Project by Morgaine Ford-Workman
2. Moss Masterpiece
Outdoor walls can often be flat and boring, so why not unleash your inner “artist” and create a “green gallery wall.” Inexpensive craft store frames and moss make an easy and chic first impression. ~ Project by By Nature, Photo by Stephanie Rose
3. DIY Beach Towel Pillows
A designer beach towel is the ultimate accompaniment to a summer pool party and the patterns and prints are endlessly stylish. Why not have a few sewn up into soft and absorbent pillows for the patio? ~ Project by HomeJelly
4. Planters that Pop
