I wanted to dress up my porch railing, but rather than build flower boxes out of wood, I took a shortcut and used plastic rain gutters. I cut them about 3 feet long, slipped on the mounting brackets and end caps, and drilled 1/4-inch holes in the bottom for drainage. Then I fastened them directly to the railing with a couple of decking screws. I lined the bottom with landscaping fabric before adding soil and flowering plants. Watch the video for details.

How to Build a Deck Over a Concrete Patio

Hammocks make for the ultimate backyard "staycation." Nothing says summer quite like reading a book in a hammock! This free-standing wood hammock stand uses basic, pressure-treated wood posts, deck screws, and 45-degree angles to create a custom-looking stand for about $60 — much less than the average cost of a store-bought hammock base! This project creates a hammock base that's 13-feet long from eye bolt to eye bolt, making it the perfect length for 11-foot-long hammocks.
