My sister bought her first house about a month ago, and when she moved in there were a bunch of decorative concrete border bricks taking up space in the garage.... so one day I decided to fashion them into a 'throne'!  It was pretty fun (like playing with Lego's), but VERY tiring.
So now, instead of just taking up room they serve as seating!

All of the jumbled up bricks before:
(they were more spread out, but I didn't get a shot of that)

Thanks for looking!

It doesn't really hurt, but I did put down a felted rug that I made for a cushion.

I did this with cinder blocks on our back porch.  Same thing, we moved into our house and the freak jobs before us had lined the patio pavers with the cinder blocks... talk about fancy work Roll Eyes  So yeah, I quickly removed them only to have an awful mountain of cinder blocks on the porch so I made a thone also, hubby loved it.
