For the Weekend * 3 Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining

I love a good project and weekends are a great time to get some creative DIY garden projects done. I absolutely love this simple foldable wooden outdoor chair. These chairs would be great around a fire pit or just out in the back yard. I think they would look great with a color stain too, maybe a robin's eggs blue or a cranberry red. I am definitely making a set of these for our guests.

Another totally affordable and within anyone's budget is this genius fire pit made from an old clothes washer drum. It takes less than an hour to make and come in at under $10. If you or your friend doesn't weld I could easily see this set up on some rocks.

If you are cooking out  or sitting around the campfire this weekend gather a bunch of sage and toss it in the fire for an all natural bug repellent. Bonus, saging the fire will clear the energy in your yard.
