Summer projects I can’t wait to build for us outside and out on our deck! Some DIYs and things just have to wait for some nice weather not only for us to enjoy them but for us to build them as well. Goodness knows I always have a summer project list in the spring that’s as long as my arm. There is just something about stretching out in my garage with a breeze, a little music, loving a summer day while building something for us to enjoy for years to come. Not that I don’t love my basement workshop its just that by the end of winter there isn’t anything better then being able to do something outside! So, of course, I have hundreds of build projects I’ve spotted online that I just drool over day after day. Here are a few summer projects via Pinterest that can’t wait to build

First on my list of things I cannot wait to build for us (mostly me) are sun loungers! I have a few of my own I recreated out of old goose hunting chairs but I really want something that can double as benches and something that would work better out on our deck. The thing of it is we live in northern MN and only have a few months out of every year where being outside and sun bathing is even possible without, quite literally, freezing to death! I dream of a place to lay out and catch some rays after work and these would be perfect!
(Psst – I did build two of my own!! Click here to see them!)
Ok, how perfect is this though!? Get home after a long day of work, fill the cooler with ice and enough beer that the only reason you would ever need to move until sunset is for bathroom breaks! And this is such a simple project too – what a great idea!
(Psst – I did build three of my own!! Click here to see them!)
Ok, who doesn’t want a potting bench though!? Someday I’m going to have something like this out in my garage or out on our deck. I’m even thinking about trying to find an old sink that I could hook up to our hose for a little potting meditation – I’m thinking it would be a perfect place to pot cuttings out of my grandma’s perennial garden to give as gifts!
I love how simple these chairs are! They’ve also got that chunky and comfy look that would be so great for out on our deck or by our fire pit! When all you need is 1x6s and 2x4s I’m right there asking my husband to bring me the material so I can start building!
Another project that is so simple I wonder why I haven’t built it yet! Oh right, we already have a sofa for our deck, but I digress: we have a huge deck and I’m sure I could find a place for this! And it would be so simple to build, I could cut all of my pieces and assemble it out side.
And my own little summer project contribution that I made last year: A grilling table for our deck. In the future, when we finally break down and get a full size grill, this will work perfect as a buffet table right outside our kitchen door.
