When we bought this old house three summers ago, the backyard was a nightmare. I remember standing on the back porch with the realtor and saying, "Wow, this could be beautiful." She looked at me as if I were out of my mind. ;-)

I guess your realtor never watched "Yard Crashers"
I purchased a large plastic light cover from a garage sale and covered it with glass beads and grout. It had a center hole in the middle perfect for a patio umbrella for my table and I
placed it on an old lazy susan roller. It works perfect for picnics or to have the glow of candles in the eve. She is over 5 years old now, could use a fresh coat of grout, but she still shines in this hot Florida weather.

I am doing a patio table with glass beads: long beads are petals; lg. round beads are flower
centers, & sm. beads to fill in. Rather than grouting, I think I will pour clear acryllic over it
