Stylize Your Backyard This Summer Season
(NewsUSA) - From grilling to gardening, the outdoor season is here. But is
your patio primed for the party?
According to resident Dremel® Tool expert Pat Hensiak, summer is the perfect
time to spruce up the patio and embrace
simple outdoor do-it-yourself projects.
"We receive numerous calls from do-it-yourselfers looking to give their
outdoor space new life," Hensiak said. "The right
tool will help reinvigorate summer entertaining and cookouts."
Consider these simple suggestions to prepare your patio or backyard for a
festive summer barbecue:
- Freshen up metal patio furniture. Season after season, patio furniture
is exposed to outdoor elements. Remove any
loose or flaking paint with a rotary tool such as the Dremel Stylus and the
No. 530 stainless steel wire brush accessory.
The Stylus fits into the palm of your hand, helping you maneuver around table
curves and handles. When the rust is
removed, wipe down and rinse the furniture. Once dry, finish the project
by applying a coat of rust-resistant paint.
- Clean the grill. Everyone hates to clean the grill. And because they do,
the grill collects baked-on and hard-to-remove
residue. But a rotary tool can be used to avoid hand scrubbing and quickly
rids the grates of any cooking deposits. Tackle
the task with the Dremel Stylus and the No. 511 abrasive buff accessory.
Once clean, treat the cooking rack with
vegetable oil or cooking spray to prepare your barbecue feast.
- Make terra cotta luminaries. Looking to add a warm glow to your patio
party? Create one-of-a-kind luminaries to light up
the conversation. Draw or trace a design onto a terra-cotta pot. Then, using
a hand-held rotary tool, carve out your design.
Insert a votive candle to illuminate your table, entryway, patio or garden.
Try a citronella candle to keep the pests away.
