5 Quick And Easy Ways To Spruce Up Your Outdoor Space
You don’t have to work hard to get your outdoor space in shape. There are some easy tips and tricks to help you get you there. It doesn’t matter if you have a small or large outdoor space and either can be overwhelming when it comes to sprucing it up for summer. Well, here are some ideas for getting your space perked up and looking great!
Add A Pop Of Color To Your Patio Furniture. Adding decorative seat cushions can immediately add that pop of color you need in your outdoor space. Our patio set works perfectly in our space but it was so plain. I decided to add some cushions and bam! They added just the right amount of color and pizzazz.
Our backyard space is small but that doesn’t stop me from trying to make it comfortable, colorful, and a warm and welcoming space for friends and family to visit. And the hubby and I just love sitting back there enjoying meals and each other company.
There is always a huge assortment to choose from.
Paint Your Existing Patio Furniture. If you have patio furniture that’s looking a bit worn around the edges don’t replace it. Repaint it! My set is only about 4 years old but from all the use and weather, it started getting a little worn in spots.
A quick touch up around the edges and it’s as good as new!
I also repainted my wrought iron love seat and my plant stand. It really perked them back into life and was easy peasy too! I used spray paint for the love seat and it was so quick and easy!
I love the black metallic paint. It really makes it sparkle and looks brand new again.
And my plant stand came back to life too! All you need is a little paint and some patience.
And Of Course, Add Some Colorful Beautiful Plants! I love adding flowers and shrubs. Whether they are perennials or annuals, adding some plant life to your outdoor is a guaranteed way to spruce up your space. If you go to the discount racks at stores like Lowes and Home Depot, you can score some beautiful flower with a mark down of over 50%!
My front yard as well as my backyard, are not that large of a space and yet, I was able to add some stunning shrubs and flowers by spacing them out and planning ahead. Here are some of the beauties that grace my space.
By adding shrubs and perennials to your garden your space is transformed instantly.
A new addition this year. My beautiful lavender shrub. I know by mid-summer, she will be displaying beautiful flowers.
This red vine variegated shrub is a butterflies delight and adds color and volume to our front yard.
Another new addition!
This lilac shrub bloomed mid-May and filled my house with its scent day and night.
Add Lightening! It’s not as difficult to add lightning as you might think. It brings a beautiful atmosphere to your space and creates a magical outdoor oasis. Lights are perfect for your backyard. We can relax and have beautifully lit gatherings at night now that I’ve added some ambient lighting.
I love the landscape lighting out front too. It is perfect for both atmosphere and security. You can read all about the lighting kit we used here. In total, there are about 9 path lights in the front yard.
The flood lights in the backyard were easy to install and again are great for security and atmosphere.
Elevate Your Potted Plants. By elevating them, you create dimension and depth to your space. I had an antique table that I painted and used it to elevate my potted plants and garden decor. Be sure to check out my tutorial on how I achieved this look. How To Quickly Beautify Any Piece Of Old Furniture
These work perfectly for smaller outdoor spaces too. Ladders are another great way to elevate your plants. They are charming and need little or no maintenance.
This stand works great for my front yard space. And since it’s wrought iron, it requires no maintenance at all!
Remember, find inspiration in unexpected places! There are always ways to spruce up your outdoor space without having to spend a fortune.

Your flowers and furniture look great! So pretty. Makes me want to beef up my back yard, too!
When did you start doing the linky parties? Count me in on those!
Really love all the little touches you did to bring this outdoor space together. It is very inviting and I want to sit and sip coffee with you out there. I especially love your plant stand and would totally want to bring that home with me. Great job Carolann. ;-)
You have given me some ideas, girl! I don’t know how you do it all, but I have to do some of those painted elevation options!
I agree, it doesn’t take much to make an outdoor living space enjoyable and function able. Some nice photos here for inspiration. Thanks for the linkup.
Great tips! I love the idea of elevating potted plants. And that little blue table with the fluffy plant is adorable! Thanks!
Oh yes I love how the metallic black made all your furniture look so bright and new. Way to go! Everything looks great. It feels so good to spruce up in the spring for the summer months. Of course my fav is the blue table.
I love these tips – especially the stepladder for the plants – I have to try this myself…thanks!
It doesn’t really take much CarolAnn just a little imagination. I love all of your images and they are certainly inspiring me to do something with our apartment balcony.
The timing on these suggestions is perfect because a massive tree just took out my patio and everything on it. The good news is it missed our house, people and pets.
I have the same cushions:)
Sharing this with my husband! We need to totally redo our outdoor space, and you have some great ideas here!
