  • Five words — Christmas Lights All Year Long! Or try Chinese Lanterns (like these from Pottery Barn)
  • Try a new stain color or add a lacquer to give you a slight sheen.
  • Install a privacy fence. This will give you a cozy space that is uniquely yours.
  • Paint your patio furniture in a fun color scheme to liven up your space.  You can add an outdoor rug and throw pillows to pull it all together.
  • Convert the grass by the patio into a putting green and turn the patio into your own personal caddy shack.
  • Plant kudzu around the base of the deck. A week later, you and the kids can play “Jungle Adventurers.”
