It's a lot of outdoor furniture lately. I cannot tell you how excited I am to be shopping for outdoor furniture for reals. I think that since our marriage, I've made some rather hasty decisions in regards to outdoor furniture due to lack of money and more about things being temporary and cheap rather than for posterity and comfort.
The first patio set was for our first apartment. I had two metal folding chairs for some reason and bought an $8 Ikea table so that was that. We rarely used this little area.
Now I'm pinning like crazy because our made over patio will deserve some nice grown up furniture and the most important thing to me is comfort + longevity. The longevity is two fold. I want the items to be durable and last us a long time but also for people to want to spend long time in them. No one wants to be sitting at an outdoor space that's uncomfortable.
