I finally got new patio furniture
FINALLY! My old set was 13 years old and REALLY falling apart. I'm so happy to have this and just in time for the party. We also ordered a sofa, 2 chairs and table for the upper deck.

Oh, I REALLY like that set! It looks great on your deck...which is gorgeous btw.

It's so much fun to get new furniture, no matter if it's indoors or outdoors!

You'll be all ready for the graduation party!

Thanks ladies (well, I hope you're all ladies!). We just came from sitting on the deck with some family that live on our street. We enjoyed a bottle of wine after a VERY stressful day. It was VERY much needed! I really really really love it and am so happy we purchased it from Sears.

My son pointed out earlier that we can seat 15 or more between the table and the benches. That's fantastic

Picture Perfect over there! Can your remove the cushions if it rains/storms? I take mine in for bad weather. Your company should have a grand time & when are we all invited? :>)

Yes it is lovely and I agree with Vera, it's going to be great! I have a tendency to want to make everything just right, so I get it! I've got a wedding coming in one week so I've been busy busy trying to make things just right. I may put out some sod in a spot that was messed up by the patio guys. But in the end, everyone is going to have a great time and people aren't going to notice all the things that we were concerned with.

theoriginalfluffy - Make sure to post some pictures after the wedding. I'm glad I'm not alone with trying to make things look perfect. I know everything won't be perfect to me but most of he guests won't even notice. They'll just be here for the food!

Muddy - Yes, the cushions can come in. That was one of the reasons I picked that set. I liked that there are only cushions on the bottom. One thing I was told by an outdoor furniture rep was after it rains and the cushions are wet, stand them up so the water drains out. If they lay flat, they won't drain. It's definately true.

Beautiful! I love patio furniture and all of the trimming that goes along with it.

Your deck and the accessories look amazing! Have a good time out there and please have an extra sip of wine. You have worked so hard and deserve a bit of downtime.

Hi ForensicsMom. I love your new patio set and your outdoor area is gorgeous. I'm also shopping for new furniture for the patio area. Ours is looking pretty wornSmile Your chairs look very comfortable. I've always had the sling back chairs but opting for cushions this time.

Nice patio set and gorgeous landscape altogether!!! How many people are you having at the graduation and what kind of food are you serving? Did you do all the cooking? (Just curious!!!)

Very nice - I'd actually love to jump in your pool. I loved it when we had one, miss it now.

It looks really nice and I love your yard. Smile

Can I ask the company? We could use a new umbrella. The expensive ones are worth it. They last sooo many years!

That's a very nice dining set and umbrella, love the colors. Your whole patio is gorgeous!

Did ya'al realize that FM posted this last year?

Looks like that "person" above could be trying to advertise...

And remember, this is the table that warped over the winter!

very pretty set. We just gave away a very large table with 8 chairs, rocker and beverage table all pipe furniture over 20 yrs old. I have many good memories in the backyard of the house I raised my kids in. I did not need the big set anymore. My co-worker plans to spray paint it and of course pick out new cushions!!
