Upcycle your crates! Wooden Crate Decor Ideas

living room wooden crate decor ideas

For the DIY person, just grab some wooden crates and some paint to go with your decor and you are good to go!

Buying different sizes and shapes of crates add a bit of dimension and uniqueness to your design.  And don’t forget to seal your painted work so that you can easily wipe off any drips from vases, coffee mugs or wine glasses.  You don’t want water rings left behind!

Many people like to use a clear acrylic spray sealer. Its quick, easy and great for all sorts of crafts. You can get it here.

1 – Outdoor Mason Jar Lanterns DIY Ideas

outdoor haning mason jar lanterns

Mason jar lanterns are a great way to give the rustic or shabby chic look to your decor or party.

If you already have mason jars around the house, all you need to do is buy some of the hanging wires designed for the mason jars and a few of the battery operated tea lights for a simple, inexpensive lighting style.

I think it looks best if you mix and match different sizes of mason jars like you see in the picture (which you can pin!).

There are some “pre-built” mason jar lanterns that I found which are pretty cool.   You can check them out on this page of Amazon.

This is so simple, yet so pretty.

You use a craft twig bird nest and twist around some fairy lights on the outside.  Then fill the inside up with red Christmas ornaments.

Make sure that you get the fairy lights that have the timer, then you won’t have to worry about turning it on and off every night.

Outdoor Cushion Storage Ideas – Box, Bag, Container or Chest?

Outdoor Cushion Storage Ideas

Best outdoor cushion storage ideas box bag container



This “shed” is beautiful, but I wouldn’t want to store my patio cushions in it as I would be very concerned about mice, squires and other rodents getting in and nesting in the cushions (it has happened to us before and what a mess it was to clean up in the spring !!)

Resin Deck Boxes for Cushion Storage

Some folks may use resin deck boxes to store towels or pool toys, but when the fall comes and it’s time to close up the pool, many people use them to store their patio cushions.

Toys are then moved to the shed or the basement 🙂

They are designed to keep the contents dry from rain and snow and the customer reviews that I have read have all agreed that it does keep items from getting wet.

No need to worry about mice either as there are no holes for them to climb in through.

If you are looking for a basic, but durable plastic storage box for the deck or patio, here are some of the top rated brands to consider.

You want to make sure that you have a large enough box to hold the cushions as the cushions are bulky in size.

DIY Cushion Storage

You could always build your own storage unit.

Here is an idea that I found.  They built a storage section for their cushion in their basement so that they could tuck them out of the way for the winter months.

You can read their instructions here if you want to build the same type of thing.











Patio Outdoor Cushion Storage Bags

If you would prefer something portable, you might want to consider patio cushion storage bags.  These bags are specifically designed for patio cushions.  You can pack them up then move them to the shed or basement all at one instead of doing multiple trips with arm loads of cushions.

These storage bags water resistant, though it is recommended that you purchase one that has the extra water protection base at the bottom in case a puddle of water forms and it sits for a few days.

Best Pre-lit Christmas Trees for Front Porch

The easiest way to add beautiful elegance at Christmas time is to have a Christmas tree outside your front door – that is pre lit AND turns it self on and off automatically.

Welcome to the wonderful world of pre-lit Christmas trees for the front porch!

They are designed to be left outside, they are worry free and they are beautiful.

Because they are battery operated, you don’t have to worry about extension cords or if there is an outlet nearby.  You can move them around wherever you want.

Although the urns look heavy, the whole thing weighs about 7 pounds – easy enough to carry or move.  The bottom has the most weight so that the tree does not get blown over in the wind.

You do have to some assembly when you buy these types of pre-lit trees (though it is very easy to do):

  • Insert the tree into the pot
  • Shape the branches as they may have been squished or bent in the packing.
  • Insert 4 ZZ 1.5V batteries in the battery box (and close)

You’re done!

  • String of lights
  • Painters tape
  • Black craft wire
