DIY Patio Privacy Screens

Much as many of us would like to live on a secluded lot, miles from the nearest neighbor, not many of us are that lucky! Enjoying time in our garden can mean the need for some privacy from the outside world. It is our respite, our seclusion.  If you like to lounge on your porch, deck or patio, without prying eyes, read on. We have DIY patio privacy screens and solutions for you!

From ‘Design, Dining and Diapers’, her DIY garden slat wall is an easy project. Lots of instructions and photos as she completes it, step by step. This is one of those projects any of you can do, and it looks amazing!



We LOVE ‘Tater Tots and Jello’! (Have you seen her kitchen makeover?) Jen created this DIY privacy screen for a Lowe’s challenge, and this turned out so awesome! Made from old closet doors…yes, really. You gotta jump on over!



From Melissa at ‘Polka Dot Chair’, these outdoor hanging drapes were made from chain link fence posts. Good photos on how she did it. Great idea for privacy with some “pretty” attached!



From ‘DIY Network’, this privacy screen is meant to hide a hot tub, but you could use it for any privacy issue. One of the perks is that it’s movable, so if one day you need to shade your afternoon tea, and the next you need to block out nosy neighbor kids… it does it all!



‘Organized Chaos’ created this DIY privacy screen from lattice, but I like their twist… it’s a hanging screen! Gives it a touch of elegance. Lots of photos, and before and after pictures.

This painted privacy screen from Home Depot was made with drop cloths. I like the idea of adding the color and the DIY touch.



Create a Cabana with drop cloths, with the full tutorial by ‘Fancy Frugal Life’… This looks so pretty, you have to click through to all her photos.



This last ones my favorite! Lowes has a tutorial for their patio hideaway screen made with lumber and aluminum flashing. This looks so unique and upscale. I’d love to try it with a dark stain…

  1. I am trying to find the picture of the large tree trunk that a face was made on it from bike rims.
    I loved this garden art! If anyone knows where to find it please let me know.

    Thank you.

    • Carole,

      It’s on Pinterest…just type in what you’re looking for and it should pull it up. I have it on one of my boards, but I have so many pins it’d take me FOREVER to find it, lol!

  2. I know this is a few months late but I found the trunk with the bike rim face at this web address. :)
