In our household, the family spends as much time as we possibly can in the backyard. It gets lots of sun, it always has a great breeze, and our garden is pretty divine to look at, if we do say so ourselves. That’s why we’re always on the lookout for cute DIY ideas that will help us add a little something or make it look even more like the haven we think it is!
