Here are 10 ‘DIY’ Patio transformations that will inspire…from Chelsey Andrews – Better Homes and Gardens.

Trend: 10 Fantastic Patio Makeovers

My husband and I are prepping to tear down our terribly ugly (and sort of already falling down) detached garage really soon, so it got us thinking about all the things we can do with the extra space we will have in our tiny backyard! We definitely need a patio to entertain and host dinners in the summer, but will we do pavers or lay down some concrete? Maybe stones with pebbles filling in the cracks? Should we just go with grass? What about a covered area since it rains 9 months of the year in Portland? So many decisions to make and that’s what this weeks DIY inspiration is all about. Take that boring patio from blah to wow! Check out the inspiration below to get started on your own patio transformation.
