My back patio has a very nice Sunsetter roll-out awning and a 4-piece lounge set that I got at Big Lots a couple of years ago, the set has a loveseat, two rocking arm-chairs, and a coffee table... but I didn't have a place to eat, a patio table. But I found one recently on Craigslist for $10! It is one of the plain looking metal tables with the mesh top. Here it is when I brought it home:
Not too bad but kind of boring if you ask me. And you can see in the picture below that the green paint was flaking off.
So I painted it!!
BRIGHT, in your face, eye-popping YELLOW! Booyah!!!
Then I gathered my chairs I found at the antique show in the park that my mom and I went to around it.
But now I thought it needed an umbrella for shade. I looked and looked for just the right umbrella... those things can be spendy!! But I found one that was perfect on Wayfair.com and the price was perfect as well... only $38.95 (including shipping!) for a 9' Jordan Manufacturing Wooden Market Umbrella! Yippee! I ordered it right away!!
I chose white but as you can see there are lots of choices... even a hula umbrella with the grass like they use on hula skirts! Fun! I ordered it on Sunday, August 25th and it was here on the following Friday, August 30th! I love that because one thing about me is that I am SOOOO impatient! :o)
Look at how much bigger it looks with my table!
Click the link below to go to Wayfair, they have tons of stuff (over 5,000 items) from furniture, décor, kitchen and lighting, to office and school AAAANNNNDDDD free shipping on the big things!!!
This is the first time I've ordered from Wayfair and I am very pleased! So, I'm pretty happy with my new patio table and it was still cheaper than buying new even with my new market umbrella!
