Back Yard - Flip-down sideboard from Plow & Hearth. It would be perfect for small outdoor living spaces, and, best yet, it's totally DIYable. A couple of lengths of chain, some hinges and a latch is all we'd need for hardware. I'd shoot the moon and go for ipe for durability, but in covered and semi-covered areas, any species would do.
This elegant outdoor room was put together in just a few hours and without spending a lot of money. An alfresco dining spot, is arranged under a metal gazebo. Snap-on weather-resistant fabric panels shade the space from sunlight.
