Want to self do something easy and inexpensive just to make it look better. We just laid them several years ago to make a sitting are right behind the house but in a shady cool area. Now
we are retired and want to improve the looks without having to take the squares up.Size is about 6ft. deep and 10 ft. long. Have a little gazibo with a tall table and 2 tall chairs with flowers and plant around.

Thanks for the ideas and they all sound good but still looking and researching.Definitely want
to fill in cracks and a small area with ground cover of some type,maybe even some moss. Am going to look around and see what is available in those lines. Might even go in the woods and dig some moss. My daughter has done that with great success.
My husband and I replaced our old solid wood garage door and I knew the sections were at risk of heading off to the dump in my husband's truck if i didn't come up for a use for them! I
wanted more outdoor seating so I decided to create a large outdoor bench using two of the better sections. I used the one section for the top and then divided the other section in thirds and used them as the "legs". I then scraped the loose paint and used a heat gun to remove some more. I wanted some of the paint to stay since it really made it look weathered. I gave it a good sanding and then added some wax to help it hold up just for this summer. I am trying to find some marine polyurethane so I can really seal it well. I added some pillows which just makes it really comfortable and we use it all the time!
