Learn How To Create An Outdoor Dining Area On A Small Balcony

6

Today, Isabelle from EngineerYourSpace channel is going to teach us how to create an outdoor eating area on your apartment’s small balcony by installing a DIY bench and privacy screen to create more living space.

In this way, you’ll maximize square footage by adding a truly cozy and private outdoor eating area that also gives you more seating on a small balcony. This might seem like a huge project and might make you feel a little lost, especially if you have no idea how to start. But if you’re careful with the instructions and maybe get a craftier friend to help…

You might end up with a favorite place to read a book, with coffee or tea. The most Tumblr-like space for your Instagram story,  and a lovely place to invite friends over.

Inspired yet? No? Just look at how it may turn out:
