I love this time of year when it's cool enough for me to go outside and enjoy sitting on the patio. It's relaxing to sit at the patio table and watch my kids play with the their friends, or run around with the dogs. Sometimes we love to eat lunch or have a snack outside. It's been raining a lot, so I think I need to buy some patio furniture covers. I don't want to have to bring in the chairs every time it rains, but I want to protect them so they'll last for years.
I found some great patio furniture covers that will be perfect for covering my table and chairs all together. It will be so easy to just push the chairs in, and cover them up all at once. It will also make it easier for me to get the kids to help cover it up, since it doesn't take much effort! They can't tell me it's too heavy, because it only weighs 10 pounds (I'm pretty sure they can handle it if they work together!)
There's also a cover for table umbrellas, and this will be perfect for me. I dread opening the umbrella after the rain, hoping the rain water doesn't soak everyone as it's opening! Then you have to dry everything that gets wet before you can sit down. The vinyl umbrella cover only weighs 2 pounds, so it's no problem to cover it whenever we're not using it.
My girls want a wicker patio couch, but I have been debating about getting one because I didn't want it to get ruined outside, and I don't want to have to keep bringing it in. Patio furniture covers are available for couches, so I just might be able to talk my husband into getting the couch since I can keep it covered!
