I've been looking for the past couple of months for a dining table and chairs for my patio with no luck. Once again, living in a small town makes me feel like my hands are tied. There just aren't a lot of options here. The closest thing I have found that I even half way like is a set from Lowes.
Last night I bought a couple of lounge chairs and a tiny side table for my patio, at least until I can get some proper seating, it's better than sitting on the floor. Also got a small grill until I can find the right kind of gas grill I'm looking for. It's nice to have both on hand :) The little flowers on the side rail are new, too.
I've always been fond of this beautiful set from Pottery Barn.
It's real wood and I'm not sure how that would hold up to the snow and such in the winter. I won't be storing it inside or anything, so what I get needs to be something that can stay outside all year. I also don't have a cover over my patio, so it needs to be something that can really hold up to the elements.
This is why I was considering this set from Lowe's. It's similar, but it is made out of aluminum. I'm not a big fan of faux wood, but in this case, I'm wondering if it would be the better option for me? I couldn't find a larger pic, but this is to give an idea. You can also buy an umbrella for it, which I would definitely do since I don't have a cover.
Any other patio sets that you think would be nice for this small area, please let me know. I was even thinking of getting the classic picnic table, do those come with holes to put an umbrella? Guess I could drill one :)
