9 Easy Ways to Upgrade Your Outdoor Space

1. Outdoor String Lights

With 4th of July just days away, summer is officially in full swing! With a change of season comes a change of scenery. Odds are you’ll be spending more time outdoors, so why not spruce up your outdoor spaces?

These oh-so-cute outdoor string lights will let you take those warm days into night on your back deck.

2. Outdoor Pillows

Outdoor pillows are inexpensive, come in every shade, size and add comfort and style to your outdoor space.

 

3. Metal File Cabinet Makeover

4. Artificial Succulents

Succulents are all the rage – back again from the 1970s. But if you still haven’t got a green thumb or just don’t want to manage live plants, take a look at these.

 

5. Outdoor Washable Rugs

Ruggable has patterned and plain rugs – all machine washable.

 

6. Fire Pit for Chilly Pacifica Nights

After a long day in the sun, you’ll need to stay warm when the fog rolls in. A backyard gas fire pit just might do the trick.

Are you more of a DIYer? You’ll find a homemade version at Better Homes and Gardens.

 

7. I’ll Be at the Beach

I’m a big fan of Etsy. If you need a sign to express your love of the beach, you’ll find lots of options on Etsy. You can have one personalized or purchase this beautiful mermaid piece.
