Affordable Upgrades for the Outdoors

There are a ton of ideas how home owners can make their outdoor rooms much beautiful but its also a way to make the pockets dry. If you are looking for ways to save money but make things more attractive, here are a few ideas we can share: 

1. Put a swing set that has a bright color. Bright colors always entail "fun" and bring out the kid in everyone. Where to shop for a swing?: breezyswings.com or truevalue.com

2. Watery gardens are also another way to bring out character. Where to shop? lilypons.com offers aquatic plants for $9.

3. Add a hammock that can relax you, a perfect add-on in the backyard that will bring couples closer. Where to shop for a hammock? amazon.com has various fabric cotton hammocks.

4. Add light with rope lights that not only bring glamour but also create an atmosphere that is really pleasing to the eyes. Rope lights are the perfect night lighting that can be placed anywhere. Where to shop? American Lighting offers these for $60. 

5. Make a "new" recliner by painting it with a happy color, such as a high gloss metal and wood paint. Where to buy? benjaminmoore.com offers $23 per quart Impervex latex high gloss metal and wood paints.
