Made of money? Me neither! That's why I'm always on the hunt for budget-friendly finds for our back deck. If you think you have to spend a fortune to jazz up your front stoop/condo balcony/sprawling backyard for summer, think again. These items are all under $20, and will add a bit of style to your outdoor space this season. Some are on sale, so pick them up or order online sooner rather than later!

I love the deep red/navy combo in this nautical-style outdoor rug. Halsted Rug, $5, Ikea.

Dress your basic patio set with some cushions in a neutral patterned fabric to elevate the look of the chairs. Arden Outdoor Seat Pads, $17 each, The Home Depot.

This ruby-red cushion cover fits Pottery Barn's outdoor Swivel Armchair, but could be used on throw pillows you may already have. Swivel Armchair Cushion Slipcover, $14 each (back cushion only), Pottery Barn.

Brooklyn-based New Yorker artist Claudia Pearson designed these nautical outdoor melamine dishes. Cute! Claudia Pearson Summer Plates, $3.25 each, West Elm.

Add a glow to your patio with a few blown glass lanterns. These have a plastic handle that looks a bit like leather, keeping with my nautical theme. Droplet Lanterns, $11-$16, West Elm.

For more pocket-pleasing accessories, see our High & Low Patio Finds gallery.
