Small Outdoor Space Makeover

Hi all, hope everyone’s having a wonderful long weekend.Just wanted to share a refreshing outdoor space transformation I dealt with over the weekend.This  tiny patio was so drab and in dire need of a makeover.Since budget was a constraint ,it had to be a thrifty one too.With the summers in ,it’s hard to not want to relax and unwind outdoors as much as possible.The goal was to create a warm,cozy and intimate space while keeping it simple and within the budget.

Patio transformation- Before /After

Just added seating for one with room to add more seating when there’s company as it’s a

very small space and can look cramped easily.


Here’s the space all lit up with string lights and LED candles setting the scene for a pleasant,soothing and

breezy summer night,a perfect place to enjoy the solitude of the night after a long day at work!


Falling in love with the teal +black+white mix .Some spring flowers and essential herbs to balance the greenery.


Herb Garden – A must have



Here’s a picture of the space in the daylight.

Just imagine lounging there with a favorite book,sipping a cup of tea ,with birds chirping and butterflies fluttering by….

Pure Bliss !!!
