    Patio Update

    I had said that I would post pictures when we got some patio furniture, so here they are. Since I didn't know *exactly* what I wanted, and I didn't want to spend a lot with our current economic situation, this simple table, umbrella and chairs is perfect. I actually do like it and its simplicity! We will be christening it this afternoon with some guests.

    Edited to add: And that is the oldest of our two cats sitting in the window, wanting so badly to get outside. LOL

    Beautiful! And simple. I am envious, and am sad I will have to leave my beautiful patio made with antique bricks for the abomination in Hermann,

    Looking smart and easy to maintain.

    What does something like that run now?

    I looked at them a few years back, and now what I have seen are more expensive (like everything else).
    So I have my garage sales queen mom, watching out (her last two houses have been decorated that way).

    While I do that, I found and am building a pallet sofa for outside (this house has a much bigger yard/patio and deck, and I saved the pallets from work). Need to find the cushions yet.

    This was from Walmart - total including tax (free shipping) was $135.41. Only issue I'm having is that the umbrella base was supposed to be included but was not. Working on it.

    It looks great, Happystuff and I hope you get a lot of enjoyment from it. Will you be adding planters?

    ETA: Love the kitty in the window!

    Well, you can't have a nice patio without furniture! It looks great, happystuff! I'm sure you'll get lots and lots of use out of it!

    Thanks, everyone. Like I said, I'm happy with it. It just seems to "fit".

    rr, not sure about planters yet. I'm adding stuff as we go along.
