After spending 1.5 horrendous hours on hold with The-Insurance-Company-who-Shall-Not-Be-Named, listening to that hellions hold music, I bought patio furniture. I have e wanted to buy patio furniture for about three years. I always end up waiting too long into the season and then there is nothing left.
About three years ago I purchased this awesome table and chairs but when it arrived via UPS it was in pieces. They tried sending it again but it was once it was again in pieces. I asked for my money back.
Today I found a table and chairs just like what I was looking for. I found a table that was not too big, seats four, round or octagon, and folds up so I can put it away in the winter. The table is made out of eucalyptus and is FCS certified wood (meaning it was sustainably harvested). I also got four matching folding chairs. I bought a yellow umbrella to make the whole set pretty. I just have to go buy the stand for the umbrella.
It will arrive at the end of next week. I am excited to be able to relax, sit outside and eat a meal.
