Ideas for Small Balcony Space - Before and After

How to make dull balcony or veranda a nice place to sit, drink coffee in the morning? I would like to show you today great idea for small balcony space.

This is how this small balcony used to look.
You need white paint, three recycled pallets, few pillows and few plants and it is possible to makeover a sad place into vibrant in only 2 days. 
 
Everything, including floor was painted in white.

Just one remark. For floor you need a paint that is more hard and more suitable for hard usage. 


What can I say... the owner says that this small veranda/balcony became the favourite place to unwind....
