Outdoor Deck Tiles

By The Ugly Duckling House on Aug 22, 2012
It's no secret that my back yard has a lot of issues.  I also don't have the time to send it to a shrink.  So whenever possible, and especially when I'm doing things that require more muscle than brain power (like sanding drywall), I try to think of ways that I can make an improvement without a lot of effort.  Pretty, colorful flower pots?  Scour Craigslist maybe?  And how am I going to fill in that sink hole?

By happy accident, while drooling over the new collection of stuff I don't need at World Market, I found these:

How perfect.  Interlocking outdoor deck tiles are simple, easy to install over a cement patio with little prep, and instantly dresses up a boring slab.  Of course, the next thing I did was do a Google image search of the different possibilities.  It's a great solution for just about anyone since it's removable (so you renters have this option, too).  And now I'm daydreaming about a cool new patio that is more within my reach than ever.

Find any random tidbits like this that make life a little easier (or in my case, make another dreaded project something to look forward to)?  Please share - I love discovering innovative products!
