If you have a favorite outdoor spot, deck or patio but not a lot going on in the line of style and function, the following DIY projects will have you wanting to get your craft on. Reusing and upcycling can turn a bare spot into a lounge worthy space, great for a weekend project.

The following tutorials have good, easy to follow images and videos, including a great compilation of ideas for making a fantastic homemade patio set.
