I was thinking the other day about how much time we spend outside.  In the summer, I think we’re outside more than we’re in.  I want my outdoor spaces to as inviting as the inside of my house.  There’s a little more upkeep outside, but it’s totally worth it.

Today I’m sharing some of the ways I make outdoor living more fun and affordable.  Most everything here today was thrifted, free or found at a deep discount…my favorite way to spend money!

Outdoor Living 1. I decorate with personalized pillows, like this crab pillow cover.  We don’t live on the beach, but I love coastal decor.

outdoor living 43.  We love  grilled pizza…even if  it’s a frozen pizza, it makes life even easier. Have a lazy meal on the porch.

Outdoor living3. Create outdoor art with using an old picket fence or a found pallet.  You hang art inside, why not outside?

Outdoor Living4. Outdoor rugs, outdoor pillows and outdoor prints create a cozy spot. Bonus points, for being weather proof.

Fresh Flowers in watering can7. Having a few people over for a cookout?  Grab some grocery store flowers and a watering can, instant centerpiece.

Spray paint a ceramic garden seat.8. Ceramic stools are everywhere.  They make a great side table.  This one was bargain find and all I did was spray painted it.

Grilled Nectarines and Peaches Recipe9. For a quick dessert, throw some fruit on the grill!  Check out my recipe for these right here.

    1. Your ideas are great and awesome. As you are saying, we live outside rather than inside in summer, this is right and mostly people are sit outside in the morning and evening for taking tea, coffee and so on. If your outside area will be beautiful, then it always makes our day good and great. Outdoor always increase the value of home.

    2. Oh my word! I had no idea you made a stump tables too! Yours are beautiful, Debbie!! I love the frozen pizza idea too!! 😉 Hand me a cold beer and frozen pizza slice and Ill be happy for hours.
