Just a few pictures to inspire you to transform your deck! The photos are from Southern Living Magazine.
A worn deck next to a carport. A charmless outside space with no ambiance was turned into this:
Wow! Fresh paint, new furniture and some plants. The blinds between the carport and the deck creates more privacy. The curtains and awning made out of weather resistant fabric softens up the place. A nylon rug adds warmth (and can be left outside, rain or shine).
A candle lantern casts a soft glow.
Greens and yellows add a splash of color to this outside haven.
