We had cinder block furniture in my college dorm room but a little less classy than these. Lol. I’m glad to see that it’s coming back around and that I can claim credit for being a trendsetter. These ideas are so fun! I love all the outdoor seating ideas. Numbers 5, 9, and 12 are such creative couches and benches. I really like number 10 too. What an adorable little vase. Just imaging stubbing your toes on any one of those! Yikes! That wouldn’t keep me from making them though. Hehe.
