I've been dying for a porch, patio, gazebo, or any other outdoor social area, since we moved here. I've fashioned a number of things to try and supplement my craving, but it just wasn't quite the same. A year and a half later, we finally bought a gazebo! It's not the fanciest thing, but I can make just about anything look nice. I decided we should go for a Moroccan style arrangement, with low tables and lots of pillows. This is the first of two low tables we're making that can be easily moved, combined, or used as benches. We are using cinder blocks as a base, so that the they can be easily broken down and moved. We may decide to build legs some day, but for now it is just fine. We even ate dinner out there last night!
