Does your patio have a pillar supporting
a shade structure or a second floor balcony?
You can convert that pillar into a little
counter for drinks by wrapping it first with
backer board and then a stone facade.
Top it off with a nice 9 inch capstone and you
now have a drink shelf. For more facade colors and patterns
(also known as stone veneer), here is the RCP website;
