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.
After: Reinvent Wisely
Finding the perfect table and chairs might be the most important aspect of reinventing a deck. Homeowner and designer Mary Leigh Fitts ditched her outdated patio set to make room for a large table custom-made with an iron base and limestone top; canvas chairs fit easily around it.
"I wanted something sturdy that would last for years and that could one day be brought inside and still look beautiful," says Mary Leigh.
Hint: For a less expensive tabletop version, use glass or plywood painted and sealed for outdoor use.
