Although we appreciated the table and eating outside in the nice weather, we didn't spend much time out here. Instead of changing what we didn't like, we spent the past six months adding to the mess.

Quite a transformation, eh? Because we're renters and didn't want to spend a ton of money on a space that wasn't truly ours, we kept costs down and made sure everything we bought/used was something we could eventually take with us.
The grand total of this little makeover?? $113
Not too shabby....
