Os­valdo cre­ated this ver­sa­tile A-frame on a “not-so-lazy Sun­day af­ter­noon”, but for the not-so-handy or time poor, a sim­i­lar one can be found at Kmart. “These shelves are right next to our out­door din­ing area and are just so use­ful,” says Jess. “Most of the time they house a wide range of pot­ted plants and out­door or­na­ments as well as hid­ing the gar­den­ing gloves and se­ca­teurs in the boxes. How­ever if we have a large cel­e­bra­tion or gath­er­ing then they be­come a fab­u­lous stor­age op­tion for plates, bowls and drinks, keep­ing the ta­ble a lit­tle clearer for din­ner.”


Open air Os­valdo built the deck, which has un­cov­ered and cov­ered zones. GREAT IDEA Build or buy a bench on which to store wood for the fire. A fire pit pro­vides year-round fun for fam­ily and friends.

OUT­DOOR EN­TER­TAIN­ING In­side out Ac­ces­sories make an al­fresco area comfy. Cush­ions and out­door rug from Kmart.
