Our Patio

A dining set of weather resistant chairs and a bench and polystyrene slats & powder coated aluminum framed table.  For a shade on a sunny day, I purchased this  weather, water & UV resistant Umbrella.  What I love about this umbrella is that I am able to rotate it 360 degrees to control the shades.  It is very easy to assemble.  I assembled it by myself and took me about 50 minutes.  For a pop of colors, my daughter and I picked these floral pillows and I planted some annual blooms.  Our patio is now set for a summer of fun, and evenings of endless laughter and stories.  Priceless memories and moments to cherish.  Don’t forget to buy patio furniture covers to protect your outdoor furniture from the elements during the winter months.
