    These were some great picks and literally the post filled with any kind of design one would want to take. An excellent idea to collect diy instructions. My favorite choices are the table tops and fireplaces with stone and sand categories ie pebbles, stones, gravel, wall blocks. I’ll save some of these guide s. Thanks for sharing them. Xx
