DIY Outdoor Rooms
Remember that you can make the most out of your room just but changing the paint color and arranging the furniture in a different way. Treat your outdoor room as a continuation of your home, work with the same style you have in the rest of your house. It should have all the elements that an inside room has like rugs and curtains and chandeliers and accessories but suitable for outdoors or weather resistant. Try to recycle stuff you already have around the house, if you like the way an object looks but don't like the color perform very cheap plastic surgery and spray paint it, use empty glass jars like the ones from tomato sauce or empty cans and transform them in candle lanterns, you can even hang them using wire. Arranging empty wine bottles displaying some greenery from your garden gives you the 'nature touch' without incurring in the cost of flowers or use the empty bottles as candle holders for a romantic tuscan style 'Al fresco' set up, sea shells and rocks in glass containers filled with water and a floating candle is beautiful for dinning time and a piece of rope is a good choice to replace napkin rings. The organic, rustic look always works well in any outdoor space. Don't go crazy... you don't need a lot of stuff or money to make your patio look like out of a magazine... Trust me.
