I’m so excited to be sharing this fun DIY project with you today! First  of all, outdoor projects like this mean that summer days are near (yay!) and also this is the project that I’ll be sharing on the CIL Woodcare main stage at the Cottage Life Show in just a few days!

CIL challenged me to come up with a fun, cottagey, project to share with all the cottagers at the upcoming Spring Cottage Life Show in Mississauga April 1-3, and to help them spread the good word about their line up of Woodcare products (CIL Woodcare Distinction™, Fine Wood Finish and Canadian Wood Oil) exclusively available at The Home Depot that are perfect for all kinds of different outdoor projects where we want lasting beauty and protection. What’s more cottagey than relaxing and enjoying a few festive beverages out on the deck with friends and family?

I’m really proud of how well this project turned out. It’s both impressive-looking and super-functional and of course, it was pretty easy to pull together since we have an almost unlimited supply of barn wood out back! Here’s how we did it!…
