In the summer we spend most of our family time hanging out in our backyard and on our deck in the late afternoons and evenings. Essentially, the deck becomes a major outdoor living area for us and I love to add decorations and refresh pillows each season to make the space more welcoming. Here’s some Inspiration for an Outdoor Living Area Refresh with a small budget. Take a peek at the fun new additions I was able to make to our deck for just under $25 thanks to some budget finds from Walmart. Hopefully this will give you some inspiration on how you can make some simple additions to your deck or porch to make the space more lovely for summer.

I found this ceramic lantern in white from the Better Homes and Garden line at Walmart. It was only $14.97 and is available in a variety of shades like navy, aqua, and white.

Again all this was just under $25 at Walmart. Hooray!
