Tell us about your outdoor project and how you enjoy it: I wanted to create a colourful and happy place, for me and the other people overlooking the courtyard to enjoy, as a piece of art and a practical place to enjoy daily, also when it rains (which is a lot in our country). I was inspired by Gaudi...

How did you create it? I made made a plan with a concrete bench, a place for the hammock, plants, and a path of concrete stones, which I decorated with mosaic, with tiles, broken dinnerware etc which I have gathered from friends, family, and other people in the courtyard.

Recommended store, site, product or resource? Be creative, just start, and get informed about the right materials (glue etc). Be careful about the tiles used, make sure they can be outside and won't break in wintertime!
