My Great Outdoors: Anna's Shady Escape

Name: Anna
Location: Mogliano Veneto, Italy (inland from Venice)
Type of space: Balcony
Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: When we saw this little balcony, it was love at first sight as it is the natural extension of the dining and sitting room. It is the perfect place to relax after a long day in these hot summer evenings. We love to have dinner out there, or just a cup of tea in the afternoon...

How did you create it? Not much work — we kept the sun blinds from the previous owner, looked at IKEA for the smallest table and chairs. It is very tiny and the shelf turned out to be very useful. We could place some plants and still have enough room to move around.

Recommended store, site, product or resource? IKEA for table, chairs, shelf and vases. Local garden center for plants.
