Affordable Outdoor Rooms March 16, 2011
While the outdoor rooms in the prior post are certainly impressive, there are many ways to create a wonderful outdoor space,without ‘breaking the bank’!
Instead of custom made or ready made outdoor curtains, consider cream colored painter’s drop cloths. It’s easy to install grommets for hanging and the material is washable and long-wearing.
Pillows tossed on a chair or bench can add comfort and visual interest.
Pick up an old coffee table at a garage sale; give it a light sanding and paint it with a glossy enamel in a fun color to complement your other pillows and accessories.
Mirrors can be hung on fence posts, to reflect candlelight or a glowing fire pit.
And of course, don’t forget the potted plants. Just like inside a home, greenery brings life to a space.
Here are a couple of inexpensive seating options from target.com to consider.
Now sit back and start planning your first outdoor party of the year!
