It’s (finally) warming up outside, which naturally has me thinking of how I’m going to make over our very blank slate outside. I just sold our picnic table & chairs, and I’m looking for inspiration for our space.
When I looked for inspiration on Pinterest, it seemed that every amazing space had 20 foot ceilings, a massive stone fireplace, and a million dollars simply sitting in a stack on an end table. Kidding. Kind of. I took some time to look for realistic inspiration for my outdoor space – on a very tight budget as usual. Turns out, you can have a beautiful space without spending a huge chunk of cash!
Here’s some great DIY outdoor space ideas:
I love everything about this outside area from Centsational Girl – the wine barrel end tables, the wood table in the middle, the curtains, everything! You could totally DIY those wine barrel tables or the chest:
I really love the curtains and bamboo blinds in this outdoor space– that could be done pretty easily!
This living garden wall is a great use of space – and it’s beautiful! You could make your own out of pallets!
This DIY porch makeover is filled with plants and colorful accents- I love all of it!! The painted chandelier and the frame filled with hanging pots look like fun projects!
How creative is this giant mirror? I love the cozy feel of the whole space! Giant mirrors are easy to find at thrift stores:
Here’s another gorgeous use of a mirror outside!
Who says you need a big space? This small porch is so charming and cozy!
Using a corner bench seat + a round table maximizes your space in a small outdoor area:
I am kind of in love with everything about this outdoor space. Hydrangea in a basket? Lanterns? Rustic watering can? Gorgeous mix of textures and patterns? Check, check, check and CHECK! So many of these styling pieces can be done with not too much money:
I always loved the Traci’s back porch transformation – the faux “tile” stained concrete is brilliant – and I just love the lanterns hung on those columns!
I have a dream of having a cozy hammock space someday – JUST like this: This is not an expensive look to re-create:
Oh hello gorgeous simplicity! It’s pictures like this that make me want to get rid of everything in my house and live in a white décor bubble with lots of fluffy pillows. Does this make anyone else think the same thing? No? Mmmkay, moving on.
I just love the ambiance of lights strung outside – it just adds warmth to a space instantly!
I am shamelessly in love with this DIY pallet daybed – as in, I need one in my life right now. This whole space is so fun & fresh:
