I HATE ugly exposed trash cans and recycling bins, so I’m pretty thrilled with this project!
This week you toured two of my favorite outdoor areas to lounge in my yard, but I have one more corner of my property to show you.
I didn’t show you before because it didn’t seem all that exciting…well, to some anyway. Let me tell you, I HATE ugly exposed trash cans and recycling bins, so I’m pretty thrilled with this project!
(See my cute little munchkin riding her much-too-small-for-her bike? She helped me with this project! She painted her little heart out!)
This Privacy Screen is a super easy build, a great project for beginner builders, although it certainly takes some time to do all the staining. If I didn’t have young helpers who still think “painting” (aka staining) is fun, it would have taken me three times as long.
I think it was well worth the effort. A modern stylish screen is just so much better than seeing whatever unsightly outdoor appliance plagues you… air conditioning unit, outdoor meters, garbage cans, bicycles…your neighbor (I’m not judging). 😀
I put the full tutorial on how to make this bad boy over on BuildSomething.com, Kreg’s new DIY project plan site.
What excites me most about the design is that you can choose either side of the frame. Whichever style suits you most (all slats, or a show off a little frame). The back is just as pretty as the front!
You could also customize this plan to be bigger or smaller depending on your needs, or build a whole set for a great divider!
I may just build another set for to create a decorative divider (and maybe plant hanging wall?) for my deck or garden. What do you think?
Last month I showed you how to build this incredibly awesome (if I do say so myself) outdoor couch, and now my plans to build this privacy screen, and in the coming months I’ll be partnering with Kreg on several more amazing projects. Keep your eyes peeled!
By the way, if you are an amateur builder (like I am), then you’re going to feel like you just got new superpowers after building these pocket hole joined projects. You’ll see! 😀 I used my new Kreg Jig 5 Master System, and my new RYOBI power tools, and I am on a building roll!
*A special thanks to Kreg Jig for sponsoring this post. The ideas, projects, and opinions are my own (as always). But I have to say, I was thrilled to collaborate with Kreg, because I truly am a huge fan of my Kreg Jig!
