Backyard Patio Spruce Up

I just moved into a rental with a paver patio, and no furniture. The first thing I did was build a picnic table to use with my umbrella (thanks in part to Ana White's website), and followed up quickly with some benches. While I started work on a set of chairs, I ran out of 1x4 board one night - I just needed to use power tools, so I used scrap 2x4's to build a potting bench until I could get some more lumber the next day!
