Michelle from 4 Men 1 Lady takes her patio out of hibernation with some clever projects and a good scrubbing.

Step
After a long winter, Michelle couldn't wait to get outside. The whole family plays, lounges, colors and eats outside. Unfortunately, her patio suffers as a result. She has wanted to spruce it up for some time now and make it an outdoor room. So when the Home Depot approached her about cleaning up with P&G products, she was totally game.
Step
Armed with some Mr. Clean® Outdoor Pro Magic Erasers and some Bounty® Paper Towels, she got to scrubbing. Magic erasers are her favorite. They cut through dirt, grease and grime like no other product she's ever used.
Step
Her 3-year-old cushions were pretty dirty. She got to work with the help of Bounty® Paper Towels and a little cleaning concoction she put together of 1.5 tsp. Dawn Ultra® dish soap and 1.5 tsp. Borax in 1 quart warm water. She put her solution in an old, empty dish soap bottle.
Step
First she doused (rather drenched) the entire cushion with her solution, then let it sit for about 10 minutes.
Step
For tough stains, she gave the spots a good scrub to really work the solution in to the fibers.
Step
If you just need to spot treat a small area you can also apply your solution, let it sit, and blot with a Bounty® Paper Towel to transfer the stain from the cushion to the towel.
Step
The neighbor's cat showed his approval by making himself right at home for a cat nap.
Step
The inspiration for the color scheme of her patio makeover was this old Coca-cola crate. Not only does it serve as her color scheme inspiration, but it's also a functional drink tray.
Step
Kudos to her brother-in-law, Randy, for saving this old chandelier from the dumpster of a home he was remodeling a while back. Michelle's husband has tried to throw it away on several occasions but now it finally has a purpose - just like she knew it would.
Step
To make the space truly functional and stylish, Michelle created this table using plumbing pipes and wood planks. See her full tutorial and instructions

Using a good majority of furnishings and decor she already had plus a few new things, this space works perfectly for her family. Not only is it clean but it's functional and pretty (can't forget the pretty). Find Michelle's patio reveal in its entirety at 4 Men and 1 Lady.
