Technically, of course, "wooden slats" have been around for a long, long time. The modern, clean-lined variation, however, has exploded in popularity over the past decade. You can now find them on everything from dining sets to planters to DIY projects. Even the tiniest deck can join the game with a modern birdhouse.

Relaxing outdoor space, My hubby and I designed and built all the furniture which includes the U-shape bench and the table. He built the awning so we could still enjoy our patio with all the rain we get here in WA. We love to sit and relax in this cozy spot. I love the seating around the table going to have to do on the porch!!
