    That is a great idea and it looks amazing. But now to the important things, did you make the stools? do you have the plans? dimensions, etc.?

    I think the resources list at the end has things confused. Sheer curtains? Definitely the wrong hanging baskets, but then again a triple light? LOL!

    Very clever idea! I would think a solar light could also work if hanging in a sunny area.

    Your husband is also clever in how he seems to have thrown the bar and stools together from pallet wood. What a creative couple you two make!
