14 Gorgeous DIY Outdoor Spaces – inspiring porches, patios, all able to be done on a budget to up your curb appeal and update your exterior this spring and summer!
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 gorgeous DIY Outdoor Spaces:
