Share this post

My deck is still empty this Spring, I’m just waiting for that right day when the flurries stop and the warm weather arrives for good.  We’ve had a few beautiful days, but inevitably it turns cold and yucky the next day.  Soon, very soon, I’ll pull out my furniture, pots and accessories and enjoy my outdoor space every day.  Below are some of my favorite ways to refresh an outdoor space.  All of them cost little more than a can of paint and have made a big impact on the look and feel of my deck.  I don’t have many new outdoor projects on my list this year but I’m sharing a few ideas at the end of this post that I will be tackling, be sure to check them out.
