Gotta dig a path to enjoy a fire!

Hey all you DIYer’s, are you looking forward to Christmas and the colder temps?  We sure are down here in Arizona.  We know we’re a bit spoiled though with the highs in the 60s still.  So much of the country is getting blanketed in snow and ice already, which makes us cringe at the thought of power losses and snow shoveling.  We came from that sort of weather so we know what some of you are experiencing.  You’ll get through it though, we’re confident of that.  Enter the DIY outdoor fireplace and outdoor kitchen possibility.  These are great Christmas ideas.

Your Christmas Ideas Wish List?

Christmas and the season of giving always brings about the challenges of traffic, shopping, and figuring out what to tell your loved ones to buy for you.  This year, when you sit on Santa’s lap at the mall, tell him you want to build your own DIY outdoor fireplace or outdoor kitchen.  He’ll know what to do.

What a warm feeling we get from this fireplace. Crackling fire and warm toes.

Santa will go online and he’ll visit www.backyardflare.com for great outdoor fireplace and outdoor kitchen design ideas.  He’ll pick out the perfect design for your backyard and he’ll surprise you with your very own DIY construction plan.  You’ll be able to get started on your backyard renovation.

If you are not planning on sitting on Santa’s lap, just tell that special someone in your life that you want a DIY outdoor fireplace or outdoor kitchen in your backyard.  Tell them about Backyard Flare and that they are the only place to go for DIY construction plans.  What a gift for someone you love or to yourself for that matter!  Christmas ideas are everywhere but most don’t last a lifetime like an outdoor fireplace or outdoor kitchen will.

DIY in 2018

Oh, it’s cold, but let’s start planning for later

Hello all you DIY enthusiasts, time to get your mind wrapped around the “DIY in 2018” mindset.  It’s time to figure out what great projects you will be building.  Something indoors is always good when Jack Frost is still hanging around, but why not get started on designing your new backyard?

Lots of seating surround this enormous fireplace and pizza oven structure.

Bring that outdoor living space to life and build a beautiful outdoor fireplace and outdoor kitchen in your back yard.  While you’re at it, add a pizza oven and a sitting area.  Cover the whole project in faux stone veneer and stucco with a matching paint color and get to living outdoors.

 

 

 

The new year brings great deals and lots of sales on grills, grates, outdoor furniture, and even building supplies too.  Grilling out during the super cold months of January and February probably aren’t optimal, but if you get the supplies and the plan ready, you can start building right when the weather turns for the better.

We here at Backyard Flare can help you with a great design and we can certainly work with whatever structure shape you want to achieve.  Give us the dimensions and space you have to work with and we will show you some great possibilities.  We will work with you along the way and you’ll stay involved during the whole process.  It’s a fun process and you’re in charge.

Have a great beginning to your 2018 and let us help you get into the “DIY in 2018” mindset.  Happy New Year and happy building.

 

Decorate For the Season

Create Your Christmas Fireplace

Oh my…the Christmas season is in full swing and decorations are being added to everything indoors.  Why not add some spice to the outdoors too?  Add some small things or even some big things to your fireplace and make it spectacular.  Some people add great decor to their structures and turn them into a “Christmas Fireplace”.  We have seen some spectacular outdoor fireplaces this 2017 Christmas season that we just have to share.

Amazing reds and greens make this outdoor fireplace pop with the Christmas spirit.

Does it get much better than a decorated outdoor structure with signs of noel and joy?  I don’t think so.  Check out the mantel covered in red berries and a green pine wreath above it. With the vases full of flowers, this fireplace makes me want a warm glass of cider or some hot chocolate with extra marshmallows.

It doesn’t take much to turn an already gorgeous outdoor fireplace into a seasonal masterpiece.  Another wreath makes this fireplace step right into the Christmas season and the lighting overhead adds a lot too.   By adding reds and greens, as well as lighting and images of Christmas, you will turn a nice space into an even more welcoming space.

What are some of your holiday decorating ideas?  Write a comment and let us know and even share a picture of how you designed.  Thanks and we hope you have a great holiday season.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
