DIY Outdoor Room Remodel: Before + After

What if you already have an outdoor room – but you want to give it a new look? Where do you start?

Sometimes the best first step is to de-clutter the space you already have and clean it up. And not surprisingly, a fresh coat of paint can work wonders – just as it does inside – and for minimal cost.

Check out the video below for a before-and-after DIY remodel example. You’ll see how paint not only on walls and floors – but furniture – can completely transform a space.



Don’t be afraid of buying used furniture that you can then re-paint or re-cover for a fresh new look. Also, many do-it-yourself kits (like the deck cabling in the video) are much simpler than people expect. Rather than hiring someone else to do the work, you may be able to tackle these projects yourself and finish them in a short amount of time.

As you might have noticed, the nautical-themed deck above included some simple outdoor wall decor to add to the ambiance. This can be a simple and inexpensive way to dress up your space (especially if you already have items you can use).

Lastly, depending on where you live, privacy can play a big role in how often you use your outdoor room. Incorporating blinds or curtains not only gives you privacy, but can shield you from sun, wind and rain as well.
