Make Over Your Deck in Less Than a Day
See how a few outdoor accessories can take your patio from plain to perfect in less than a day.
Beautify the View
Because this patio had a parking area in sight, Mary Leigh came up with a clever idea to hide it. She asked a local craftsman to create the effect of louvered blinds using pressure-treated 2 x 4s.
He measured the space between the brick half wall and the top of the carport's roof, and then had wooden frames (also constructed from pressure-treated 2 x 4s) made to fit that space.
Inside the frames, more 2 x 4s were nailed horizontally a few inches and at a 45-degree angle. Then the wood was primed and painted white to match the trim.
