replace the middle board OF A PICNIC TABLE with rain gutter to fill with ice for drinks.
makes 3 gallons for around $4.00. Worked better than Round Up & killed the weeds/stray grass on first application. One gallon of APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, 1/2 c table salt, 1 tsp Dawn. Mix and pour into a smaller spray bottle. (you can purchase 3 gallon size Apple Cider Vinegar in the canning section of a good hardware store - cheap!)

FINALLY found the original pin for this! Only cost $42 to make!!! Dig a 2ft deep hole four feet around. Purchase 25 4x4x12 pavers and 12 flagstone pavers. We bought ours from Menards. We also put two bags of 3/4" river rock in the bottom. It's so easy, we did it in just a little over an hour.
