Outdoor furniture and entertaining can be expensive, but you can achieve a classy look with great functionality at minimum prices if you’re willing to put in a little elbow grease. This summer, make the most of your deck or patio with these three easy DIY decorating ideas that are sure to brighten up your outdoor space.
Upgrade an Outdoor Rug
Want a fancy outdoor rug, but don’t want to splurge? With a little creativity, painters tape, and fabric paint you can have the outdoor rug of your dreams. Starting with a base of a plain, solid colored outdoor rug you can either freehand a simple design, such as dots, stars, or flowers, or use painters tape to create a layout for a geometric print. To make your design last as long as possible, make sure the paint you are using is suitable for heavy wear and finish with a coat of spray on fabric guard.
Add a Storage Bench
For extra storage and seating, adding a storage bench is a great way to liven up your space. If you are an intrepid DIYer, you might try making one yourself using a simple pattern. Otherwise, you can easily find one at your local outdoor furniture store or a local yard sale. A quick coat of paint and some well-placed throw pillows will have even the simplest bench looking fresh and feeling comfy.
Build an Outdoor Plant & Privacy Wall
If you have a green thumb, want some extra gardening space, or need a little privacy, a hanging garden wall is perfect! Not only will the greenery liven up the space, but as the plants grow and fill out, you’ll be kept out of sight from prying eyes. For an even more atmospheric option, stick with fragrant plants and culinary herbs.
