summer furniture

dilemmas, dilemmas. we really need some sort of outdoor furniture for our covered patio. well, need isn't really the right word. want sorta makes more sense. it probably was a bad idea on my part but i went outdoor furniture shopping with my mother in law today. i should clarify... we went high end outdoor furniture shopping. you know, the stuff most definitely that will never fit into our price range. ahem. this is the piece that i salivated over...

well, not this exact one but something very similar. it had an over $3000 price tag. i nearly choked on the drool that was pouring out of my mouth. jeez. i could buy another vehicle or two for that price. but it is beautiful and i'm sure it would last a long time. however, it will not be on our deck. so i found something more in our price range.

it's cute, ain't it? and a much more reasonable price. i found this little ditty at home outfitters, on sale for $419, regularly $599. not too shabby at all, huh? i was quite pleased with the price actually. i was thrilled with the price. M... well, not so much. he doesn't think we need anything on the deck so any amount of money is too much. i love it but the only downfall... i measured it and it's just a few inches too wide for our deck (the way i wanted to place it). oh well. i don't think i could have convinced him to get it anyway. so, where does this leave me? do i continue to use our ugly sitting around the fire pit camping chairs? or do i save up for something spectacular? here's the thing, i need and want something for the deck. unfortunately, this is probably what i'm going to end up with.
i just might be able to convince M on the $14.99 price tag. ;)

I just saw one like in your top pic at Sams the other day and was drooling all over it, i had visions of putting it under my willow tree, Marc not so much.
I like your 2nd choice too, not so hot on the 3rd, but we used to have some just like that, same green too, LOL.
I'd save and buy something you love. There will always be something fun to buy but not always the $s to afford it, scrimp now, buy later

i know... i was thinking that too. maybe next summer after we've saved up a bit. we'll see. or maybe i'll just start buying lottery tickets. ha! said...

Useful tips. When you buy components to go with that color,
it will help the fixtures combination in with the relax of the lawn.
