Talk Of The Town Party 136

Two more weeks until back to school a.k.a. end of summer 😭 Why do the summers go so fast and the winters drag? I guess living near the north pole doesn't help 😏 We are on high alert around here as our second grandchild, who is not due to arrive until mid-September, is determined to make her grand entrance early. The signs are showing it could be any day now but we're hoping she can hang on a couple more weeks. 🙏🏻

20 Ideas to Get The Look of our Budget-Friendly Deck Makeover

Realizing not everyone has the tools, physical ability, or the skill set to create the nine DIY projects we featured in our backyard deck series, I thought I would share 20 ideas to Get The Look of our budget-friendly deck makeover that I found online.

I hope you enjoyed our budget-friendly deck makeover series where we created a cozy and inviting conversation area one DIY project at a time. In case you missed it, I've included a recap of the series towards the bottom of this post.

20 Ideas To Get The Look Of Our Budget-Friendly Deck Makeover


There are charming and playful ideas in this curated collection to recreate the look with similar ready-made options to those on our deck. I even found a water wall!

I do hope you find that certain something here that is perfect for your deck. They are affiliate links which means that if you click on one of the product links and make a purchase, I may receive a small portion of any sales at no additional cost to you. See my full disclosure policy.


Let's start with this Adirondack Tete-a-Tete, similar to mine but made with an eco-friendly product from recycled materials that doesn't require painting or staining.

CLICK HERE

Same with these Adirondack Chairs also made from the same recycled material.

CLICK HERE

This is a great alternative to my headboard bench because not only does it provide extra seating but it has storage for cushions underneath.

CLICK HERE

While it may not be hexagon shaped like ours, this fire bowl table offers a spot for setting glasses or to use as a footstool and it runs on propane.

CLICK HERE

This is the perfect little table to sit between two Adirondack chairs. It's also made of the same eco-friendly material and comes in multiple colors.

CLICK HERE

These cedar planter boxes are very similar to mine left unstained. 

CLICK HERE

Remember the Le Jardin repurposed door flower box on my deck? While this may not be a door, the trellis is adorable and I picture pretty sweet peas climbing up the lattice. Bonus, unlike mine, this one has a self-watering system!

CLICK HERE

This is a perfect portable beverage cart for the deck. The metal construction makes it durable and it comes in so many pretty colors.

CLICK HERE

I was so excited to find a water wall option for you guys! While it may be much smaller than our DIY option it has the same relaxing trickle effect on the bamboo tempered glass. 

CLICK HERE

These high back chair cushions are almost identical to the red ones on my deck. They come in multiple colors and have a couple of striped options available too.

CLICK HERE

These are just like the red lumbar rolls I have on each side of the headboard bench on my deck. They add that pop of color but I also use mine for their intended purpose on both my lower back and neck when sitting in the Adirondack chairs.

CLICK HERE

My outdoor rug is stained onto the deck because of the harsh climate where I live. But if you're lucky enough to live somewhere that can withstand an area rug, here's a striped green and beige option that reminded me of mine. It also comes in red.

CLICK HERE

I think this adorable rusty patina metal garden sign is the perfect option for the birdhouse sign I have hanging on our deck. 

CLICK HERE

Wouldn't these wooden coasters pair perfectly with Adirondack furniture? And they come in two sizes.

CLICK HERE

Now you know how much I love my vintage camper flower pot so you can imagine how excited I was when I saw this one. 

CLICK HERE

I love the whimsical metal cat and dog that I painted on my deck. I squealed in delight when I found these two cutie options for you.

CLICK HERE


CLICK HERE

Here is a perfect alternative to my coastal picture frame serving tray.

CLICK HERE

I love that my metal solar fence lights are unique and when I saw these, I couldn't resist sharing them with you. They come in three different colors and bird motifs.

CLICK HERE

Love the ambiance our outdoor patio string lights add to the deck after dark.

I hope you enjoyed this curated collection of alternatives for creating a similar look on your backyard deck. Save it for later or share it with a friend on Pinterest.
