Decorating with Items Built for Outdoor Use

A quick and simple design idea for your outdoor space is to decorate it with items meant for outdoor use. These items are made to withstand both salt and water, making them great additions to outdoor wall decor. You don't have to worry about adding wood to your decor if it's built for an outdoor function.

Here are a few of our favorite ideas that involve outdoor wall decor made from outdoor items.

Fishing Nets

For an inexpensive design idea, find old fishing nets to add to your patio. You can hang it from your outdoor wall or use it as a decorating piece on the ground.

You can even add some dimension and extra color to your design by adding antique fishing floats. These glass pieces help to create an authentic nautical feel.

Wooden Canoe Paddles

Another great idea is to use wooden canoe paddles for outdoor wall decor for your patio. Thankfully, vintage canoe paddles are meant to withstand the elements while adding a nice touch of wood that you won't have to worry about.

Vintage Lobster Traps

Add vintage lobster traps to your pool cabana or other outdoor rooms to create more dimension. If your patio is in need of some character, look no further. You could even add these traps to your outdoor wall and use them as planters for a fun twist.

Old Windows

A unique way to create outdoor wall decor that has been recycled is by using old windows as decorations for your garden walls. Create the appearance of a window planter by adding flowers to the bottom. Wood windows help to add a more rustic feel.
