DIY Coffee Table Paint two urns with two coats of semigloss paint-plus-primer. Let dry, then fill with pebbles for weight. For the tabletop, have five 4-by-4s cut 3 feet long. Lay boards parallel to one another on the ground. Using Liquid Nails, glue them together, then glue two strips of wood down the center, so they cross.
Porch Retreat from Better Homes and Gardens. I could add curtains like this to my front porch! Use the hardware for a shower curtain or closet, to hang these,and you could even use some shower curtains as they resist mildew and mold better than regular fabric. Gives a sense of privacy and intimacy to late night cocktails with friends and keeps out the bugs!! Provides nice shade too.
