    I LOVE those covers, they are beautiful! Even if you dont read what is inside of them, the covers alone are hot. You could totally cut out the centers of them and make secret storage 🙂

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
