Faux Stone & Counter Space for Outdoor Grilling--robin, i have such plans for your outdoors :P this would be awesome for your grill! once you do the faux stone look, then do this around grill---that would look so beautiful!
When space allows, add a countertop or island next to the grill to make food prep and service easier. A peninsula works well in this outdoor kitchen. It provides additional seating for outdoor dining that's close enough for the cook to chat with guest.
