Last week, I shared with you the progress we made an easy DIY project of building our boho decorative deck wood privacy panel on our deck to camouflage our old aluminum siding. A deck privacy screen is a great way to hide what you don’t want to see While it’s not hiding us from neighbors or close buildings, it is giving us privacy from the ugly siding. I had considered building it out of vinyl or a more durable material, but I knew stained wood would be fine since it wasn’t going to see too much weather under the roof. Once it was up, I was able to do the fun part which was styling it. I made the Staghorn Fern plaques, and I also created some kokedama live plant moss balls as accents. I re-potted large plants in pots from around our yard and house to give it a cozy boho feel. Here’s a look at at the panel before styling.

Here is the after! For the decorative panel deck wall makeover, I pulled a chair over from the other outdoor seating area, and a concrete side table I’ve had for years. It really ups the game on our outdoor space! You can see here how the panel was put together.
I found the LED hanging solar light at Target on clearance a few weeks ago. I should have bought 2 for the porch area! It charges all day, and then adds a nice bit of cozy light in the evening. if they bring them back next year, I’m going to grab a few for the rest of our backyard.
I like how it lights up the new area. We have some skunks that occasionally show up and it’s nice to be able to see the edge of the deck just in case. I love how solar lights have come so far. We are really enjoying our solar string lights in our gazebo area.
For the deck wall makeover, I tried two different pillows on the chair with the existing cushion. One is black and white with geometric shapes. It allows the deck railing to create another wall. That side has a privacy fence so it’s really more of a boundary instead of a privacy wall.
The other pillow is called Pattern of Boho Plants. I like both, but I like the black and white one better. I moved the other two Pattern of Boho Plants pillow to our lounge chairs where they look perfect against the navy cushions it’s such a stylish way to create a new look! Layered with potted plants it adds to the boho, outdoor room feel.
I really love how the Staghorn Ferns look on the deck wall panel makeover! They add a really nice natural touch. If you missed that DIY or want to find the supplies to make them, see it here.
I am not sure how fast they grow, but I’ll put them on a bigger plaque when they outgrow these.
I re-potted some of my indoor plants in large ceramic pots. The little olive tree seemed very happy to have more room to grow, and I divided up the sanseveria into two pots.
I grouped the plants in 3, because 3-5 is the magic number for decorating when styling and creating displays. To find out more about creating displays for shows and markets, check out this post. I hope you loved this wood panel deck wall makeover! Hopefully, our next project will be repainting the deck itself! To see more about our deck, you can see when we originally painted it.
