DIY Summer Projects

Is it really almost the end of June?  I know I say this all the time, but I am always so amazed at how quickly time goes.  Days fly by and, just when I get used to writing one month, a new month is here.  This especially seems to be true during the precious summer months – it is by far my favorite time of the year and time just seems to speed up somehow.

Great ideas for DIY summer projects!
While I don’t like to take on anything too big in the summer, I always like to have a few little projects to work on and have put together some of my favorite DIY summer projects from this month’s Inspiration Exchange for you.  From the garden to your kitchen there is sure to be a project that inspires you!
