Maybe something similar to this but different. Ha. Maybe a different type of blocks or something else?

Such a great idea why can't I think of things like this! The homeowner built a clever concrete block bench for only $30. Scrap fabric covers the pillows and the plank that top off this truly brilliant seating area.

I've been thinking about curtains outside and I like it!! When creating an outdoor room, think comfort. For upholstered furniture, use outdoor fabrics and synthetic fill. All-weather curtains cast welcome shade from the sun.

Outdoor cooking is more enjoyable in a kitchenlike environment. However, most kitchen countertop materials don't weather well. Consider natural materials such as stone, granite, or slate. On a tight budget, make forms and pour concrete countertops (shown here) -- you can get creative and set in small stones or other embellishments for detail. Seal concrete twice yearly.

When space allows, add a countertop or island next to the grill to make food prep and service easier. A peninsula works well in this outdoor kitchen. It provides additional seating for outdoor dining that's close enough for the cook to chat with guests, but it keeps people away from a hot grill.

Love it!!!

So cool! Never would have thought of that! And I've been trying to figure out someway to cover our deck in the future without having it covered all the time!!
