3 Beautiful Balcony Makeovers

When I lived in apartments, my wish was to someday have one with a balcony. The thought of having a little outdoor space that I could decorate and festoon with plants proved for hours of DIY daydreaming. As it turned out, my wish to live in an apartment with a balcony never transpired. I also think it's the reason why when I drive past an apartment building with forlorn and forgotten balconies I get a little miffed. 'You have a balcony!' I want to yell out the window. 'Use it! Appreciate it!' The people who were behind these three balcony makeovers know what I'm talkin' about.

This first makeover from Mommy Daddy Blog was completed with products from Walmart and Home Depot with a budget of $400.

The next re-do from Casa Haus proves that it doesn't take much to make a big impact. No furniture, no lanterns, just plants.

And finally, my favorite, one that doesn't even look like it's the same balcony after it's 'after'! The price tag? A remarkable $389. (Seriously, doesn't it look like it cost about 4x's that much?)

Oh, and the rug? The maker, Monica, used my tutorial to update it!! See more of the balcony's individual details at Hironelle Rustique.

@Steve--I've never heard the term 'Juliet' balconies before, but I love it!! I'll poke around and see if I can come up with some ideas. 

I think that's a bit harsh, they've been made to look beautiful. Do you have any tips for those of us who have to make do with a false (juliet) balcony? I've seen ideas for plant holders, but there's so little room.

I do not find the examples convincing. The balconies were mainly empty. Any balcony, which has a few flowers on it and offers not too ugly seating, looks better than a completely empty space or one which is misused as storage room.
