Ready for summer

A couple weeks back, I finally got access to my deck. The first thing I did, of course, was get some plants.

Then I began looking for deck furniture. Unfortunately, that was more challenging. I was about a week or two late for most of the clearance sales. And I didn't think a snow blower would be an appropriate choice.

Then I got lucky. I checked on a store off Fairview in Seattle that was a bit out of the way. The only way I knew about it was that they had a giant chair on top of a nearby coffee shop.

I stumbled into David Smith & Company at just the right time. They were wrapping up their teak end of season sale and I picked up a table and four chairs at 50% off.

The next day and the rain and cold weather started.

Now I'm all set for summer. In 2009.

We have teak patio furniture too. It holds up really well. Supposedly, it will last 100+ years. At least, that's what the salesman said....

It looks wonderful. I wish I could sit there. And how great the you got such a deep discount.

Good deal.

I need new patio furniture, but it will probably be a few years.

Our furniture isn't teak, it's metal and glass, and most of the time it is great. I worry about the umbrella tipping the table over though, like with the winds we had here in Port Orchard a couple weeks ago. Almost time to get out the covers and batten down the hatches for winter now though. Congrats on the discount, and your deck has a totally amazing view. :)

Very nice setup you have there. Looks like many of the rooftop patios I've seen in Brooklyn. Only cleaner.
