Trent Austin Design Weldona Kitchen Cart with Stainless Steel Top & Reviews | Wayfair - Not sure how I feel about stainless steel on top, but it would be durable.  The top doesn't protrude too much, and the wood would warm it up a lot.  Would need some bins for organizing, etc, but it is nice and long.  2 next to each other might look nice, but casters do look cheap (could maybe skip those with this one).

Charlton Home Hoglund Kitchen Cart with Wood Top & Reviews | Wayfair - Really, really, REALLY like this one, and if we didn't install the spice rack or wine glass rack, it could look nice back to back with another one.  2 next to each other would look strange though.  In the picture, it looks like a muted country blue, but the reviews say it's gray, which I don't want. I would have to paint this one.

Hoglund Kitchen Cart with Wood Top

This Kitchen Cart with Wood Top is perfect for a busy host. Their calming coastal and farmhouse design belies its many helpful features. 2 Pull-out drawers, glass holders, and 4 shelves are all arranged neatly under a solid rubberwood top, making this kitchen cart indispensable for entertaining. The finished wood of this kitchen cart further adds to its understated charm. Features 2 Pull-out drawers with metal knobs Product Details Base Material: Solid + Manufactured Wood Counter Material…

Three Posts Fortville Kitchen Cart with Wood Top & Reviews | Wayfair - Really like the green color, and there's a "denim" color as well.  Hardware and casters look really nice...though this one might look better without the casters?  Towel hangers on both sides would mean its hard to put them next to each other, and it's $280 each on sale...but I still like the color and warmth it would add to the patio.

Mercury Row Landis Kitchen Cart with Wooden Top & Reviews | Wayfair - For an all open shelving, I think this one is good.  Could use 2 adn wouldn't look out of place.  Casters look cheap, but the wood shelves are nice and thick, and the small middle one could be removed to put a trash can there, or an ice bucket/cooler for drinks could probably fit.

Landis Kitchen Cart with Manufactured Wood Top

Bring order and on-trend style to the heart of your home with this kitchen cart. Crafted with a metal frame in a black powder-coated finish, this budget-friendly piece features a rectangular top and three open lower tiers made from manufactured wood in a Sonoma oak finish for understated appeal. Two ridged shelves let you keep your favorite bottles of wine on hand, while caster wheels below make it easy to move this cart throughout your space. Assembly is required. Product Details Base…

17 Stories Milburn Kitchen Cart & Reviews | Wayfair - Like the warmth of the wood and metal, but I wish the shelves were thicker.  One closed drawer would be nice, but still, this one is very versatile and affordable.  2 of them next to each other wouldn't look so bad, but might not be symmetrical....doesn't look like it can be built with X support on either side??

Milburn Kitchen Cart

Product description With our new kitchen shelf in trendy vintage style, you can create exactly what the designers had in mind: a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere in the midst of your home. A Powerful The classic, stylish look of this all-purpose shelving may be misleading in that, believe it or not, it can actually carry up to 176 lbs in total weight. Heavier items like your microwave, stacks of cookbooks, or piles of pots and pans will all find a spot here on the various shelves. Microwave…

August Grove Lucian Kitchen Island | Wayfair - Don't like it white, but I like the crate drawers and the drawers with silver knobs.  Also, if we could build them "backwards" then they would look symmetrical to have 2 next to each other.  Crates could be removed to hold ice buckets, etc?

Lucian Kitchen Island

Features Material rubberwood top, MDF Color white with natural finish top Locking casters for mobility Product Details Base Material: Solid Wood Counter Material: Solid Wood Wheels: Yes Adult Assembly Required: Yes

Gracie Oaks Halsten Kitchen Cart | Wayfair - Like the green, and the shelves and the cupboards (which could have shelves added inside for organizing), but don't love the tray top and extension. I like the IDEA of an extension though.

Halsten Kitchen Cart

Effectively expand your kitchen's working surface and storage space with the kitchen cart.

Gracie Oaks Zarmig Aurora Kitchen Cart | Wayfair - LOVE the warmth of the wood top and bottom shelf, like the drawers, but the side handle would make it hard to line up 2 of them.

DIY Sleeping Porch Swings, and more! I love these porches!

Back Sleeping Porch Ideas With Swings and Fireplaces - Kid Friendly Things To Do .com

The house has a sizable sun room on the back that I would like to turn into a sleeping porch, and dream about the lake without pond scum! My first step toward this "said" sleeping porch has been searching on Pinterest for DIY bed swings! I've found swings, and a few other ideas for an incredible porch. Here's what I've found so far:
