Outdoor Kitchen... A spacious counter for cooking and entertaining --made of recycled wood and cinder blocks -- cost almost nothing. Originally, the cinder blocks were part of the chimney at the back of the house. Decorative painting gave them a pleasing gray patina.
Raised garden bed made out of mosaic cinder blocks. I think I may just do THIS for our garden this year! Turn them on their sides and plant the seedlings in the open holes...perfect containment, no room for weeds! ;)
