The old brick grill is cleaned up and transformed into a gas cooktop. Inexpensive burners are inserted and attached to a propane tank with a simple hose, then the burners are topped off with a new grill. The defunct fire pit in the middle of the patio becomes a beautiful centerpiece with the addition of a tiered planter. Simple mason jars are filled with sand and votive candles then placed around the whole area to illuminate the space. String lighting is crisscrossed above the patio, giving the space amibient light with festive attitude. Finally, large, masculine-style furniture pieces provide comfortable seating.
Tip: Concrete stain is a quick and simple way to improve the look of concrete in a really short amount of time. The stain dries almost instantly and is virtually goof-proof!
