SMALL PATIO GETS A MAJOR MAKEOVER | Rental apartment patio!

Nov 19, 2021
Hi guys, welcome back to my channel, I'm Alexandra and today we're doing a backyard

makeover

. You're probably wondering why you're getting a backyard

makeover

at the end of summer. The session has been postponed until the last minute, but the second reason is that we all spend a lot more time outdoors and I feel that if you live in a

small

apartment

, having an outdoor space, no matter how

small

, is very important. at this time. in toronto i have no doubt we'll be out on our balconies or our

patio

s until at least october maybe that's pushing it a bit but anyway i know this

patio

will get a lot of use in the next couple of months before to start off i want to say a huge thank you to native deodorant for sponsoring today's video i have worked with them before i was obsessed with their deodorant they have also launched a new body wash i have been using more about them later on but for now let's get started so today we are at my videographer carla's house you all know and love her we actually did mostly her

apartment

it has over a million views over a million so im going to link that video here.

It's part of our studio arrangement series, but today we're tackling her outdoor space and I wanted to bring it up because I know I'm going to be asked by some of you who already have this beautiful catio in her backyard. Can you tell the viewers in about five sentences? i think you're going to love this because it's an ikea hack i basically grabbed three of the ikea shelves i don't know how to pronounce the pine shelves we'll just put the name here and i put the shelves together and they just made spaces for the cats they could jump from one shelf to another all you really have to do is build a separate door so i went and bought a few more pieces of wood some hinges and some locks and a cute little knob for the door we packed it like a little frame I stained the whole thing I grabbed some chicken wire and just stapled all the chicken wire to the outside of the catio and then I found these little mats at the dollar store actually that help with this gaps between the pieces of wood on the shelves that it's all and they love it thanks for sharing that DIY with viewers it's my pleasure I know you'll love it if you do this hack in your own backyard be sure to send r in a picture of that to my instagram pm me because then we can admire your catios so you have to go ok we'll surprise you for once carla is not filming ag video it's kayla our friend kayla who also edits on the ag team she is shooting today so it will be a surprise for you. see from before this patio looks a little dreary lit a bit gray there is a picnic table there is some more furniture carla hasn't really had time to think about it much but she wants us to be a space where she can entertain where she can rest and of course a space for the catio so since we filmed those earlier a couple of things have changed obviously the catio has been installed it looks great next to the door and we also installed a beautiful new patio light wanted his patio light to match the rest of the room so that's brand new it looks great and now what we're going to do is put in a new floor because carla lives on the second floor there's no hose access here it's very difficult to clean the deck and it looked really dirty so I added this really simple click floor from ikea.

I'm sure you guys have seen this before going with black because we're doing a lot of black decorating. Many wooden floors were laid. It was very easy to assemble, as you can see alana. and i'm just clicking i t instead it actually makes the space look bigger and carla can have this all year long it's so easy to clean and just looks yes it looks very classy and good next we're going to add a really huge rug to this outdoor space this one is from ruggable we are using one of their outdoor rugs that is also machine washable which i think is so key to an outdoor space you can leave it out all day season and then at the end of the summer throw it in the washer and put it away for the winter and it's new next summer which is awesome it's a big rug but we want it to fit under the dining room table we have so Let's do that now folks, I hope you're enjoying the makeover.

I just got out of the shower. I'm in my bathroom and I wanted to talk about this week's sponsor native deodorant. I am very excited to partner with them again. You may have heard the story about how I have been using drugstore deodorant for years. First ingredients: aluminum. My mom was always like that. please don't put that under her arms on her body and so when native deodorant approached me a while back i thought i had to try the deodorant first before recommending it because honestly natural deodorant has never worked for me but since last time i was sponsored i have been using your deodorant i have so many different scents and i love it its the only deodorant i wear one because it is aluminum sulphate paraben free it is vegan it has ingredients we all know and recognize like coconut oil has coconut extract spearmint shea butter but i'm obsessed with scents too i find it's not sticky i find i smell fresh all day long or i smell like the scent i'm wearing sometimes i even wake up the next morning and still smell like my deodorant that I have I love the cactus flower and the aroma of poppy.

I've been using it for I don't know like two months. This one is cucumber and mint. They also have a eucalyptus one that is very good and they recently launched a new line of body wash. I've been wearing sweet peach and nectar, which is a really fun summer fragrance, but I wanted to show you this one, the herbal-citrus musk. they smell so good musky but also citrus its so so good and what i love about the packaging in this is on the back it tells you the ingredients and it says ingredient what it really means so the first one is water and then what in reality means you know this sodium lauro lil star something something and what it really means is cleansing salt so all the ingredients are so transparent even if they are scary they tell you what it really is so impressed with native deodorant i will never go back . to that drugstore guy if you want to try native deodorant of course i got a discount code for you and seriously guys like it just try it just try it just try it and you'll be converted i promise three deodorants usually cost 36 bucks bu If you use my code and my link in the description box you'll get three deodorants for 24 which is 33 off plus free shipping so use that up and get the citrus and poppy flour deodorant, the citrus mask and herbs and sweet peach. and nectar those are my favorites from top top sun ok back to the makeover ok rug is down. bring back the most beautiful chaise longue i have ever seen it is from outdoor furniture line items you know i am obsessed with the item thank you so much for gifting all this furniture to carla i also feel this chaise lounge would work so well indoors so you can bring it in the fall if you have the space or you can just keep it outside.
The article sells amazing covers that protect outdoor furniture. we're also going to bring this beautiful dining table now that this dining table is quite big and in charge but we chose it for a reason that carla doesn't have a lot of space to eat in her apartment so she really wants to maximize all the space you have. here and that's why we're doing a beautiful vintage table with these amazing green armchairs to give it a nice pop of color so I kept going back and forth with the placement of everything because these are big pieces of furniture and this is a little space elena and I had planned it out before and I knew everything was going to fit but finding the right position for everything just took a bit of trial and error and I found the key was to center everything on the rug so centering the daybed inside the rug and then push the table against the wall where it sticks out here so we're making use of that space and it doesn't feel too cramped on this patio but carla still

gets

everything she wanted a huge table for entertaining somewhere t relax and obviously , we are going to add tons of accessories.
Now I knew we needed some string lights and since this patio is so small I wanted to close it off even more and make it really cozy and intimate by putting lights over everything, basically like this. You'll notice that Carla already has two mug hooks right at the top of the wall where the ceiling begins. Those were there from the previous owner so I knew he could put the lights in there but obviously we need something to put the lights on. Here, I just went to the hardware store and I bought some 2x4 posts and I'm driving them into the corner of this wooden fence and then we're going to hang the lights and go across the deck.
It will look so good I can't wait either. to watch this at night when everyone is on and everyone is glowing ok let's do this wish me luck on this mini diy adventure sports ain't my forte not my forte i don't i don't like sports , I do not do it. i don't do sports no not really oh here i go here we go we're good we're good i need to do another nail in the bottom but it's there it's sturdy it will be good i don't play sports but there's a lot of nails on this guy it's super sturdy it looks great and it was so easy just two two by four's nailed to the fence and now it looks like a restaurant patio like this but looking at it it's too light it doesn't go with the vibe so I'm going to stain it with a black stain it's going to tie everything together you could also use paint the reason I'm using stain is because honestly it's easier we should have done this before we nailed them to the fence we don't think about it and sometimes you just need to see it in a space to have that lightbulb moment and look what a difference it makes to just bring this whole space together this makeover is coming together so well now its time for the finishing touches makeovers done its time to reveal it to carla im so nervous about it general she's on that side of the chamber not this side i can't wait to see what she thinks i hope she likes it let's bring her right so before you open your eyes i want you to imagine what this balcony looked like before it was sad carla very very was sad i didn't even like going out here before ok well i think you'll like coming here now are you ready on the count of three i want you to open your eyes ok ok one two three oh my gosh look this is how perfect it is really straight out of a magazine oh it's perfect so i can't wait to see it tonight you like it so im gonna take naps here yeah you sure you killed it you seriously killed it thanks you killed it too el el catio i think i did a good job you did a great job and they love it archie loves it look at his paws hanging out we should all have a drink here right now let's do it let's do it yeah yeah okay success carla loves her new patio this was such a fun project and it's actually kind of sad because he raps our last patio makeover for the season thank you so much for watching if you liked this makeover hit that subscribe button. deodorant for sponsoring this episode to make it happen be sure to use the code and link in the description box for that sweet native deodorant discount and I'll see you here next week bye
