Fire Table Elegance and Function

Style and function very rarely come together they way they do in the beautiful Catalina Fire Table. Handcrafted from slate and completed with a powder coated metal base, it is a beautiful addition to any porch, patio, or outdoor area. The fire bowl itself is made of spun aluminum and the versatile design can be powered with a propane tank or gas line. The included fitted cover converts this piece into a regular table. It is like getting two tables for the price of one! Lava rocks are included. You can replace them with sand or fire glass. Made in the USA, you know that you are getting great craftsmanship as well as a gorgeous, cozy gathering spot for entertaining and relaxing.

Multitasking in Your Backyard!

Convertible Bench
In my busy world, multitasking is important. The ability to do multiple things at once saves me time and money. I also enjoy products with dual functions to get the most bang for my buck. In the office, my printer/copier/scanner allows me to perform several jobs with one unit. For cooking, a combo grill and smoker offers variety without having multiple cooker littering the backyard area. My most recent multi-tasking buy is one of my favorites! The Convert-A-Bench transforms quickly and easily from two beautiful garden benches (above) into a fully functional picnic table (below). They are perfect for my backyard. Guests can sit comfortably while my husband fires up the grill. When the food is ready, the back of the benches transform into a convenient table top with dining for six! It is a perfect solution for multitaskers like myself. The resin wicker design is sturdy and will last for years. These benches would also be perfect for camping and can even be used inside your home.

If you are looking for something slightly smaller, the Fly Patrol Insect Catcher is perfect for you. Covering 300-400 square feet, it is a great fit for your porch or patio area!
