We have a fairly large backyard that we are slowly transforming into a family-friendly, food-producing, wonder-garden...

Recently, my husband designed and built a covered sandbox for our son. The lid is designed to transform into a deck when the box is opened. This eco-friendly sandbox was created from salvaged wood, sealed with a low-voc sealant, and filled with natural beach sand. Best of all: it provides hours of entertainment for the whole family!

Super smart design! Thanks Carla! Readers, see and read more about this project at Small Friendly.
