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 already and it was just the beginning…. In part 2 of the makeover, I showed you how I built an outdoor storage bench, added an herb garden and the IKEA hack I did to customize an outdoor table. And the last part of the balcony makeover was to add some smart LED outdoor lighting. In this video, I give you a quick tour so you can see the transformation from start to finish. Enjoy!
