During the summer we always spend a lot of time outdoors. I love sitting in the backyard with my feet dangling in the wading pool and a cold carbonated diet Pepsi in my hand. Life doesn't get much better.
This year as I spent many hours just daydreaming and observing, I noticed how plain and boring the back of my house looked, especially by the french doors. Well, I couldn't just let it go. I had to remedy this issue. So I put my mind to work and came up with a crafty little idea.
I had just returned from a trip to IKEA! A place that is dangerous for me to visit. I love it, my husband and our bank account- not so much. I had picked up some brackets used for hanging shelves and decided to use them upside down to help make a fun awning for our back doors.
I headed to JoAnn's for some fun fabric, and Home Depot for a dowel to use in my project.
It was sooooo simple. I took the fabric and hot glues (yes I glued it) to the brackets I had hung on both sides of the door, put a dowel in to keep the fabric from drooping.........
And ended up with this little awning. Now isn't that crafty?
