Stunning Outdoor Furniture Makeover
With a boring , dated and narrow outdoor furniture balcony area, the challenge was to give it a fresh look, make it look bigger and take advantage of the space for a inviting and relaxing outdoor dining and entertaining area
So here we have the before space
The space is a narrow 2.2m by 6m
So for outdoor furniture before, only had a small dining setting, doesn’t look very inviting by anyone’s standards. The outdoor balcony space featured just had an internal renovation, the open plan lounge and dining area had bifold doors installed to marry up the inside lounge area to the outdoor balcony. This creates the opportunity to create a seemless indoor and outdoor lounge and entertaining oasis. This simple and quick transformation involves sanding back the timber floorboards, staining the floorboards and top handrail, paint the rail posts, add in a outdoor wicker lounge setting and small bbq.
It’s a quick, relatively easy and low cost transformation that creates a stunning visual effect and enjoyable outdoor space well worth the effort.
The first job was having the wooden floorboards sanded back, that was done through a contractor on gumtree. Next was stain the timber floorboards, this was done with natural stain to accentuate the earthy timber tones, the natural stain oil this was bought at Mitre10
Next step was Outdoor Furniture, the best setting for the space was the Gartemoebe L Shape Modular Outdoor Wicker lounge setting . As it’s modular , it can take advantage of the length of the balcony and at the same time, easily fit in with the narrow 2.2m simply by having the right number of pieces lengthwise and the narrow side
To finish off the balcony, a Weber Q was bought at barbeques galore
The costs were
Floorboards sanded back $200
Timber Stain $82
Gartemoebe L Shape Outdoor Wicker Modular lounge setting $1298
Weber Q $499
Here is the after result, a stunning transformation seamlessly marrying up the internal lounge and outdoor balcony area
