A semi-tarnished champagne bucket or used water pitcher can make a chic and unique flower vase, says Michiel Perry, founder of Black Southern Belle. If you have a covered porch or patio, don’t be afraid to buy indoor pieces and spray paint them with outdoor protectant, she adds.

Also, you can create a bar cart by buying an existing side table or thrift store steal and gluing a tray you already own to the top. Then paint it or stamp it with your initials or a welcome message for guests.

Designers Parrish Chilcoat and Joe Lucas’s client loves to entertain, so they set up the open-air loggia in a Hermosa Beach, California, house, with a fireplace, a flat-screen TV, and overhead heat lamps, “so he can use it all year.” The loggia is furnished with a Provence love seat in synthetic wicker and St. Barts teak lounge chairs — all from Restoration Hardware — an Ikea Brommö deck chair, a white-painted African table from Berbere World Imports, and Brantley lanterns from Circa Lighting.

Use a metal tray to turn a cheap stool into an inexpensive side table, or make the stand yourself as a DIY project. You can use the tray for holding drinks or even potting supplies.

Sit back, relax, and rest your sangria on this side table. Up the charm (and greenery!) by adding succulents or mosses to the shutter sides.

A matching patio set can be a splurge, but you can draw inspiration from the table top. To glam up a wicker table you own or a yard sale item, add a mirror or a piece of glass to the top.

Using a black railing can fit with traditional or modern architecture of a patio or porch, and it can help the railing or a fence seem to fade away when you’re trying to relax and enjoy the view. This black railing uses steel cables, but Mosaic Group Architects and Remodelers also has recreated the look on a lower budget.

Mosaic spray-painted a chain link fence black and found the result is far less obvious and the fence more likely to fade into the background than with a silver chain link fence.

These projects prove that you have more room than you think.

This side table is actually a vintage painters’ bench, which is low enough to the ground to work with the low-slung red Adirondack chairs. California-based DesignFix also used recycled rock gravel and string lights when designing this small side yard.

Talk about a 2-for-1 deal: This fire pit caters to your space-saving needs by converting into a square patio table. See? You can still enjoy the best parts of summer sans backyard space.

Frame a small patio with a bright lattice grill screen, which enhances privacy and gives a room-like feel to an outdoor space. This screen project uses 4×4-foot posts to serve as an outdoor wall, define patio space and help hide plastic storage bins.

Make a statement with hand-painted floors. A two-toned floor breaks up a small deck into separate “rooms” for eating and lounging. Yes and yes.

Even if you only have a few stones strewn around, make them as pretty as you possibly can.

Bring texture into outdoor spaces with materials, such as these mesh hanging screens made with a roll of chicken wire and wood, or search for old chicken wire or mesh doors at building material salvage centers that are run by charitable organizations.

Just like they do indoors, a rug helps to unify a space. In this Los Angeles outdoor room designed by Mary McDonald, the striped outdoor rug is from Ceylon et Cie.

A screened porch in a Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina, house is collaged in bright outdoor fabrics. The swing cushion is Nemo in Soleil by Manuel Canovas. “In my houses, I tend to make a base of neutrals, and I love using small amounts of color for contrast,” designer Sally Markham says. “But the client urged me to use brighter colors than I normally would have, and I’m glad she did. They add excitement.”

If you have a small outdoor space, it can still be a gathering place. Designer Myra Hoefer was inspired by the way Parisians take balconies or pathways and turn them into “poetic spaces for lunch, drinks, or dinner.” She turned her tiny front yard into a pocket paradise, a walled courtyard with graystone pavers, a fountain, Adirondack chairs, and a marble-and-iron table.

Recover wood or metal chairs in a fun fabric, to add panache to a bistro set.

Spaces underneath the deck can be unsightly, so screen the view under the deck with vines or hanging screens, says Holly Brooks of King Landscaping in Atlanta. If you enjoy gardening, animal troughs also can serve as planters, instead of traditional raised garden beds.

The walled patio of a Los Angeles apartment is where designer Dan Marty likes to entertain friends over lunch and dinner. He always has lots and lots of candles burning. The varying candlestick heights add visual interest. “I can’t live without candles,” he says. “They make everything more intimate and romantic.”

This adorable planter is made for small spaces — and well, fairies. Fill a pot with stones, greens, and a little bit of magic.

A small space is a great place for a vertical garden, and this one cost less than $10. Design blogger Alaya Sheardon used a crib frame that was headed for the dumpster. She found pails for $1 each and poked holes into the bottom to help drain water.

She hung the cans from shower curtain hooks and spray painted the frame bright white.

What you’ll need: outdoor planter ($32, amazon.com), small birdhouse ($4, amazon.com)

Moral of the story: Build up, not out. Maximize your space by transforming an old wooden ladder into a stunning plant display.

A round glass table is an ideal choice for small spaces because of its compact shape and its barely-there appearance. You can find them at yard sales and repaint the legs, or pair together legs from another table with a piece of glass, instead of buying a new piece.

If you are looking for glassware, you often can find pieces at thrift shops run by charitable organizations says Michiel Perry, founder and curator of Black Southern Belle.

Not only do these flowy curtains offer a nice backdrop for a summer meal under the sun but they also give privacy when you want it. Bored with the layout? Break it up by adding a curtain. It’s that simple.

Refresh an indoor bar cart to make it outdoor-ready. Design blogger Alaya Sheardon spent $20 on a bar cart from a thrift store and sprayed it with slate gray rust-preventative paint. She then painted the shelves with a stencil and covered it in white paint for a textured look.

Now it holds container plants and supplies on the patio.

In the courtyard of a Newport Beach, California house, designers Katie and Jason Maine placed mirrors on either side of the fireplace. “We used those large, old window frames with mirror in them — which also make the space look bigger,” Katie Maine says. Sofas are by McKinnon and Harris, and tables from Michael Taylor topped with hammered-metal trays from ABC Carpet & Home.

A chandelier and string of lights add even more romance to the patio of a Corona del Mar, California, house designed by owner Dana Abbott and her design partner, Kim Fiscus. A simple grid of black river rocks add an elegant detail in the concrete patio.

In a small space, you are already saving money by not buying a big outdoor furniture set, but cut your costs even more by visiting home decor and garden stores after Labor Day for end-of-season deals on items such as chairs.

If you find a used set of chairs instead, you can spray paint the metal to freshen the finish, says designer Julie Montgomery.

When you run out of yard space for blooms, look up. These spray-painted cans breathe life into a weathered fence.

With small spaces, sometimes the sky is the limit. “Add verticality. Small spaces need an element to draw your eye up,” says Derrick Lepard, founder of Cultivators Design and Landscape. When you add height, such as the bamboo in a container in this Atlanta courtyard, you don’t need to spend money on plants to fill every space across the fence or wall.

Depending on the layout of your patio, an outdoor shower could be part of your design and create an interesting focal point. If you have outdoor plumbing, you are on your way to making this possible, says Leigh Spicher, Ashton Woods’ national director of design studios.

Frame a small enclosure and treat with a teak accent. This one by Ashton Woods designers extends above the wall, but yours would be less detailed and require fewer materials. You also can use the shower to water your container plants.

Or find instructions to build your own DIY outdoor shower here.

The warm glow instantly turns a cramped patio into a cozy one. Here, bulbs get an extra cute punch from patterned pennants.

This DIY table works hard for your yard: Not only is it a neat way to showcase plants, but it’s also a nice spot to place your book as you sip lemonade.

Think bigger than the patio. Even the smallest of outdoor spaces can be transformed into something larger than life with the help of paint, creative DIY projects, and some TLC. But if you’re itching to add even more to your tiny space, find other great ideas here.

Designer and architect Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta found five brackets stacked up at a little store on the side of the road. They were pieces of houses that had been demolished, but she loved the gray-blue patina and their scale.

“Even if you have a brand new home, accessorizing with found objects is a great way to impart texture and character and charm without spending an arm and leg,” she says.

Get your outdoor space ready for spring and summer with these quick and easy design ideas.

This patio features a new table and containers with a colorful patina. Buy cheap containers on closeout at a local home and garden store and then take thinned latex paint and do a wash for an aged/weathered look, says Atlanta interior designer Steve McKenzie.

Add a shine to your porch or patio with copper lighting. To get this look on a budget, you can take copper buckets, tubs or big bowls, which you can find new for less than $50, and drill a hole in the bottom, says designer Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta.

Add a light kit, which are sold from $5-$20, depending on the finish, and you have one-of-a-kind outdoor lighting.

The contained nature of a small urban courtyard gives you a huge opportunity to bring in a cool feature. Cultivators Design and Landscape purchased the orange container and retro-fitted a fountain for a custom industrial water feature. A fountain also can be cheaper than a waterfall. You can recreate the look as a DIY project using a garden pot you already own or by hunting at yard sales.

What you’ll need: wooden step ladder ($55, amazon.com), handsaw ($10, amazon.com), electric drill ($28, amazon.com), wood glue ($4, amazon.com)

Take a corner of your patio and put it to use as an entertaining space. A bar is built in under the kitchen window in this outdoor space with a fire pit by DesignFix, a California interior design company.

The bar, which has a red acrylic top, is supported by decorative wood roofing brackets. Rope lighting underneath makes the bar look cool at night, says designer Amanda Giles.

This striking striped table was actually snagged on Craigslist for a condo balcony by WAKE + LOOM Design. Designers Gabriela Eisenhart and Holly Conlan often hunt at second-hand stores and on Craigslist to find one-of-a-kind pieces for less.

To make the folding wood and metal chairs more cozy, the designers added a Mexican throw and patterned pillow.

Camellias arch over an outdoor dining table draped with a Clarence House linen, Dahlia, in the backyard of a Pasadena, California, house. “Crisp hemstitch linen napkins, candlelight, jasmine in a 19th-century bowl — these are simple and refined luxuries,” owner and designer Lindsay Reid says.

A bar table can provide a cool space to have a drink without taking up too much room in a small space. This DIY outdoor bar table is made of 2-by-4s that are cut into same-size blocks and glued together, then attached to a stand made of metal pipes and fittings, says Amanda Giles with DesignFix, a California interior design company.

The table is accessorized with inexpensive metal stools.

Tucked into the backyard of a Savannah, Georgia house, the walled courtyard garden is a fragrant oasis. “We put in orange trees, jasmine, and hydrangeas, my favorite flower,” says designer and owner Lynn Morgan. “It’s incredibly fragrant. And we put twinkling lights in the trees, so candlelight dinners are positively magical.” The 1950s iron table and antique French garden chairs are shaded by a Pottery Barn umbrella. Garden design by Marshall Stone.

This slim seating fits neatly against any wall. Top it with succulents to add a layer of decoration, and stow the planters underneath when entertaining a larger crowd.

Prop up container plants on unexpected items, such as an old three-legged stool, to add height to a tabletop display, as seen here.

In a Los Angeles bungalow, designer Moises Esquenazi mixed stripes with zebra print for a fresh modern look. Tablecloth and knives from TableArt.

It requires minimal room, and you can enjoy it whether you’re inside or outside. The more flowers, the merrier … right?
