DIY: Outdoor seating (with instructions). With basically cinder blocks, 4x4 lumber, and pillows.

This is the setting I envision for our Thanksgiving dinner this year. Outside under our pine with the market lights on. LOVE.

Beautiful outdoor reception

Bar....outdoor kitchen!

outdoor table made from cinder blocks and stained pine wood. nice ambience using the votive candles #DIY shelves + cinder block

Perfect picnic party...would be cute for a small, picnic wedding..i wonder how guests would feel about sitting on pillows. gotta be comfier than folding chairs

Love EVERYTHING about this one. The idea to paint the white benches a bright turquoise, choosing colored plants for color, and spray painting lanterns. Color oh my!
