There are many more outdoor room solutions for nearly everything than there were even just 10 years ago. Luckily for homeowners, that equals more choice and a wider price range. Outdoor fabric, for example, is widely available and offers a great mid-price solution for decks and patios. Here, the darker fabric shields both seating and dining.
DIY shade canopy. Using planters, fence posts, buckets, quick Crete, grommet kit and hooks. We needed more shade so decided to make this. Still need some plants in our pots but I'm super happy with the results! Better then an umbrella. Back yard project. We found shade sails on Amazon, which was much easier then making my own which I originally had done.
