How many people can say they've had their neighbor come over and tell them that they noticed that some of your patio furniture is on your roof? Well, we live in an underground house, and this happened to me last spring. It gets pretty windy out here in the Great Plains, and my outdoor patio furniture wasn't sturdy enough to handle the wind! I found out the hard way how important it is to buy quality patio furniture.
I thought I was getting a good deal on the furniture I bought, but I learned that it's not a good deal if it's not going to last. I'm once again on the search for new outdoor patio furniture, so I wanted to share some pictures of beautiful furniture that I found. I need a solid table where my girls can eat on a nice day, and a bench where I can relax in the shade and watch the kids play with their friends or our dogs.
I think I found the perfect table. It's a Bistro table, and it's tall enough to keep the dogs away while they're begging for food. It's sturdy enough to handle the weather, yet it's still light enough to move when I want to store it in the garage for the winter. I also found the perfect chairs to match. They're called Laurel Bistro arm chairs, and they're beautiful.
Now that I found the outdoor patio furniture that I want, our neighbors won't have to worry about flying furniture. I know this furniture will last for a long time, because it's made of wrought iron. It's designed to handle the weather, and I now realize how important this is! I learned a valuable lesson; it's only a good deal if it's a good product. On the bright side, no one was injured by my old furniture!
