    You need to build another one, install Tiki torches in the top, and put on each side of a patio with bistro table and chairs!..Very pretty!

    My eight year old granddaughter is all about Paris right now. If I can find the stuff for it, I think I'll make one for her.

      Oh how fun! You can paint it any color also - even pink for a girls room :) I hope you post a photo if you decide to make one!
