An excellent way to create a sturdy, level underfoot surface in courtyards, patios or porches is with brick pavers. This classic look mixes perfectly with all different styles of architecture and decor. To install pavers, the exterior area must first be leveled and then a thin layer of sand is laid before the bricks are put in place. Once all bricks are set, another layer of sand is poured on top to fill the gaps and keep the bricks from shifting.

For an extra layer of contrast, wrap fabric scraps around every other can.

Provide your full-size ironing board a designated spot where it doesn't get in the way. The trick: a pair of coat hooks. Screw them into a rectangle of wood, like Ashley at the blog Domestic Imperfection, and you have a handy upright hanger that matches the rest of the room's hardware.
