I made this patio using pallets, spray paint, painted bricks to create a garden, and an old quad tire as her table. Ct circle out of plywood for the tabletop; screwed into tired and painted top with chalkboard paint. She brought flowers on sale and put them into bricks to create a border about the patio and create her little garden. The bricks were also used to create a bench for her to sit on and store for her chalk, erasers, markers, etc. Used a standard piece of foam and a no-sew approach to making her a pillow for the bench. It took me about three days, working on it for about 2 hours at a time. The hardest part was sanding the pallets smooth enough to accept the paint and to ensure there was no splintered wood in the pallet.
