Low Cost Outdoor Cabana

Today I felt like sitting in the corner, but not just any corner
 This corner, where I can just sit back and relax
       .....
even if just for the day, or an hour, or more realistically 5 minutes
A corner where I could  sit under my sail cloth and enjoy my magazines and cool drinks
the whole time being protected by the elements of the sun
A corner under my new summer cabana that I made with just a few low cost items, some power tools and help from the hubby . Click here for all the details on how you can make this low cost summer cabana, so that you can sit in the corner too!

Nobody puts Laura in a corner!!

Except this corner - filled with beautiful pillows, cool refreshments and gorgeous ferns. The perfect place to catch those peaceful 5 minutes!

So glad you joined our party!
