You can save money on yard furnishings with some creativity and a little elbow grease.

Got any large ceramic pots? Rather than buy new ones, give the old ones the look of expensive glazed pots with special paint from Rust-Oleum or Krylon, says Liskey.

"It's a simple do-it-yourself project that's inexpensive and kind of a fun way to add some color and pizazz to a patio," he says.

Do you have a sad-looking patio furniture out in the yard? It may need nothing more than a little sanding and a fresh coat of paint to look brand new again, says Liskey.
