A Proud Patio

One of the best parts of this house and reasons we chose to purchase it was for the large 12’x20′ deck off the back.  Having never had such an expansive outdoor area, we were excited at the prospect of cookouts and the ability to entertain outside.

The patio furniture we actually purchased before we moved in, since we learned during one of our “browsing sessions” in the store that the patio furniture we liked was selling like hotcakes and not being reordered.  Apparently patio furniture season, is at the very beginning of spring and is over by summer.  I will never understand retail seasons.

The table we had our eye on was already completely sold out and out of stock, but we were able to find a similar one at Target and purchased the chairs from Home Depot.  Piece-mailing our own patio set to resemble the one no longer available.

Assembly was actually pretty easy as the table came assembled minus screwing on the legs.

Once the legs were screwed on we just had to flip it over and place the tiles on top.  The four non-swivel chairs came fully assembled in the box and the swivel chars just had to be snapped into the swivel mechanism.

can you believe there are fully assembled chairs in there?!
