Create A DIY Canopy To Make Your Own Outdoor Room

All month long, our Apartment Therapy editorial team have been working hard to put together our Dream Outdoor Rooms. Although it's nice to dream, we're bigger fans of easy projects that can quickly become reality — like this outdoor canopy!

If your budget is small and spending a weekend constructing some giant roof to shield your guests (or even just yourself) from the sun isn't on the agenda, try this simple tent construction instead.

This set up can be found over at This Old House, where fabric is draped between poles that are sunk in the ground. Cables from each pole keep things upright and can be anchored to the ground with tent spikes. It's a simple fix that makes the set up easy to set up, tear down and take with you anywhere you wish!
