Outdoor Furniture Basics
Choose wisely
Be sure to only buy chairs and tables that were designed to be outdoors. Don’t purchase items that will mold or get blown away.
Measure up
Measure the terrace or deck space before buying furniture to avoid getting chairs and tables that look too small or big in the space.
Set your intention
Do you intend to relax or is it a place for barbecues? Decide how you wish to utilize the space and purchase the appropriate furniture.
Color and materials
Earthy colors blend well in a garden and don’t reveal dirt. Opt for easy-to-clean materials which won’t get damaged by wind or rain.
Stay tidy
Especially in the fall and winter, clean and wipe your furniture on a regular basis to prevent leaves and mold from accumulating.

New Life for an Old Chair

I had an Adirondack chair which really needed help. I was going to paint it then I had another idea.

I Built a Fire Table Out of a Recycled Wine Barrel and Wire Spool.

I wanted to surprise my family with a unique gift so I built an outdoor table from a recycled wine barrel and wire spool. The catch was I integrated a propane burner into the project to produce a fire table the whole family could enjoy on those cool nights. Follow along and you too can build something unique like this.
