You can make your outdoor space — whether that's a patio, backyard or porch — look like new again in just one weekend. The secret is picking a few key products that will immediately liven up what you already own. Try adding an outdoor rug and a garden stool or an Adirondack chair and a few outdoor throw pillows. These are some affordable finds you can mix and match — they're all budget-friendly and from Walmart, so it's a weekend project you can tackle right away.

Outdoor Rugs

An outdoor rug adds so much to a patio or porch. It's an easy way to add a splash of color or design to a space, and it's sure to add a refresh to existing patio furniture. Choose from bold patterns or more natural tones. Either way, this will make your outdoor area feel totally invigorated.

Buying new furniture is the fastest way to give your patio or backyard a whole new look, but you can add a small new piece to liven things up rather than buying a larger furniture set. Try Adirondack chairs or a bench for additional seating for your household without having to get rid of what you already have.
