In part 1 of this balcony makeover, I covered up the tired looking walls of my 10 ft x 3.5 ft balcony in a way that made it possible to use the top for plants and accessories. I also built DIY lattice panels to add shade and much needed privacy, installing them without making any structural changes to the balcony. Now in part 2, it’s time for some furniture and accessories to complete my outdoor room with a place to lounge, an al fresco dining area and a small garden. You’ll see how I made a lounging storage bench, how to makeover an inexpensive IKEA table, and how to make a vertical herb garden that doesn’t take up any floor space. You won’t believe the before and after of this rental balcony makeover!
