8 DIY Outdoor Entertainment Projects

Summer’s officially here, so it’s time to DIY and enjoy some time outside! We’ve got eight projects you can create to turn your backyard into your personal outdoor oasis.

Outdoor Buffet Table

Elevate your outdoor entertaining! Our friend, Kelly of @RootedInLove.Design, created this buffet table to add some style (and functionality) to your backyard barbecues.

DIY Cooler Table

When you’re outside, you have a cooler and you have a coffee table, but why not have both at the same time? Allie of @mrsdiy_created her own rendition. This sleek, cooler coffee table isn’t just for adult beverages. You can keep juice boxes for kids in the hot days or chilled coffee for yourself. You can also store kid toys, hobby tools and supplies, or even replace the ice box with a planter for flowers or herbs for cooking.

DIY Outdoor Cooler End Table

All drink coolers are not built into coffee tables. For those with smaller outdoor space, Kelli of @thehomebodyhomestead, crafted this fabulous end table with hidden cooler inside. Whether or not you choose to hide your cooler is up to you! 

Rope Swing

Your porch is about to become your favorite spot around the house. Crystal of @crystalkirby_diyhome created this simple swing to add to any front or back porch as your place to escape and enjoy your little piece of the outdoors.

Patio Privacy Screen

The idea of a fenced in yard is awesome, but not always feasible. An easy and DIY-able fix? This privacy wall from Kayla of @Itshoneydone! Give yourself a wall to block yourself off from the world (or at least your neighbor) and create your own little piece of paradise—all without leaving the boundaries of your backyard. 

DIY Outdoor Sectional

Lounging on the couch is great, but lounging on your outdoor sectional is even better. Don’t have one? Libby from @Burnsfamilyacres created this easy DIY to help you with that. With your HART tools and these plans, you’ll be relaxing outside in no time. 

DIY Tree Swing

No porch? No problem. All you need to relax with this DIY is a sturdy tree, and your HART tools, of course. Thanks to Mariah of @flyingjsranch, enjoy spending time at home and getting some fresh air with this tree swing how-to. 

DIY Outdoor Beverage Stake

A cold drink is always refreshing on a hot day, so imagine having two at your fingertips. This simple drink holder from Nicole at @Hillhousediaries is the perfect summertime solution to hold two of your favorite drinks, which easily pops in beside your lounge chair or hammock.
