With beautiful weather year round in LA, I was determined to make the most out of my small balcony, even though I’m renting and on a small budget. In part 1 of this balcony makeover, I managed to give the balcony a whole new look with a few inexpensive DIY projects: I covered up the tired looking walls in a way that made it possible to use the top for plants and accessories and I also tamed the hot California sun by installing DIY lattice panels that also added some much needed privacy. And I did this all without making any structural changes to the balcony. The transformation is amazing and it’s just the beginning!
