Repurposing Ideas for Outdoor Room Decor


Your outdoor rooms are just as important as your indoor rooms when it comes to decor. The nice thing about decorating outdoors is that repurposed materials are an even more perfect fit there. Anything that holds beauty for you can be repurposed into something functional, decorative or useful for that deck, porch or patio. And what outdoor space doesn’t need a little old fashioned charm? So we spent some time looking for some inspirational ideas for repurposed outdoor decor… just in case your creative juices are running a little low! Our feature photo, above, is a table that is a repurposed piece of old marble on a scrap wood base with a mix of old chairs…not bad for throw away stuff, huh?

From Oliver and Rust…gotta love all the repurposed decor on this covered patio! From crates on the wall, to old buckets, doors, and windows, you really need to check out this outdoor room.



An old box filled with flowers… pretty simple, and yet such a statement! From All the Beautiful Things.



More crates for outdoor decor! I love how they have actual books ready for an afternoon read…



From HGTV, this license plate room divider is ideal for a patio space, and has a full tutorial for you!



Another tutorial for you with great instructions, this vintage silverware whirligig by Finding Home would be art in any garden!



From Simply Southern at Heart, this porch uses an antique crib as a garden bench… This is one romantic porch!



Installing a mirror onto the back of an old window adds sparkle to an outdoor room…



Last idea…Mason jars hung with twine, pop in a tea light…and thats it!
