It doesn’t truly feel like summer until you’re sitting poolside with a chilled cocktail in hand. If you have yet to get your deck ready for outdoor get-togethers and lazy Sundays spent soaking up the sun, now is the time. We turned to Walmart’s DIY and Done section to source the furniture that will help you do just that. The best part? You won’t have to fork over your barbecue budget to revamp your space.

Something to Lounge On

Stretching out on a towel laid straight on the ground gets old fast. Not only is this cushioned chaise longue way more comfortable, it’s guaranteed to become the focal point of your pool deck. Bonus points for this one’s elegant wood frame.  

A Trendy Accent Chair

Bookend this hanging seat with a pair of potted plants—hello, personal jungle—a vibrantly patterned rug, and a side table, and you’ll have yourself the ultimate outdoor reading nook.

A Pop of Color to Contrast With All That Blue

Yellow is the unofficial/official color of summer and we can’t think of a better way to embrace it than with this patio umbrella.

A Place to Hang Out

Summer and hammocks go hand in hand. Handwoven and detailed with a tasseled fringe, this macramé version is equal parts cool and comfortable.

An On-Demand Cocktail Station

The fun blue finish and streamlined build of this table are two of the many reasons we’re loving it. Couple it with margarita ingredients and a set of high-top stools and you have yourself an alfresco bar.

A Gathering Spot

This is the seat the family will be glued to for the summer. Its ash gray finish and clean lines earmark it as a piece that will go with everything.

A Catchall for Summer Essentials

Prop this portable metal side table by the pool to corral your sunscreen, current novel, and a colorful set of solid striped fouta towels. Off-season, it can serve the same function by the tub.
