We have this blank spot on our rather large deck. I have always wanted a very small wicker set to put there as a little conversation area. Unfortunately I simply couldn’t find one! Well, let me clarify – I couldn’t find one that wasn’t a lot of money. And I simply wasn’t willing to spend a lot of money. Oh, I’d find them on Craig's List – and they’d be gone as soon as they were posted. I was seriously frustrated.
Until I was over at Beth’s one day and was talking to her cousin who was lamenting the fact that she had this wicker set stuffed in the storage closet of her apartment and she wanted to just get rid of it.
I’m sorry, WHAT DID YOU SAY?
I quickly said “I’ll buy it”.
She delivered it this evening. The cushions (which aren't the originals, but are still nice) have the TAGS still one them. And she wouldn’t let me pay her. WHAT??????
It’s really wicker – not the resin stuff my other set is (which while manmade, does stand up to the elements better).
Here it is…..
There’s a love seat, two chairs and a cute little table.
So, now. What do you think? Should I leave it “as is”?
If that happens, I’d like to paint them white.
But in the meantime? What to do?
I’m not sure – maybe I should just leave them alone?
Here’s our bigger set.
Please ignore the beer bottles on the table. Brian and I were enjoying our “Holy crap that P90X is hard core and we can barely move, so we should sit and have a drink and discuss how much this is kicking our asses” after workout drink. Cuz that's how we roll.
So, tell me what you think. Leave it alone? Paint it? New cushions? Move it to the front porch?
