Make the most of it for outside living by creating a truly cozy and private outdoor eating area with DIY wood privacy panels and DIY outdoor wood benches that maximize seating on a small balcony. It’s outside living at its best: you’ll be expanding your usable square footage by adding an outdoor room perfect to entertain friends on a hot summer night. Not to mention you’ll be the envy of all your neighbors!

    This is a great tutorial! I just moved into a new studio apartment and I have been looking for ideas for my balcony, since the space gets a lot of through traffic being on the 2nd floor. :)
