To go with our new decking and flowers, we bought some garden furniture so we can fully enjoy these sunny days.
It’s a six-person set, but to squeeze six people round it on the decking, even sideways, would involve someone being very squashed next to the fence and someone at the other end of the table teetering on the edge of falling into the grass. That’s why we’ve decided to have it as a large four-seater, and kept the other two chairs for the patio area by the French doors.
We just need a table to go with them – we’ve kept the old one for now but it’s kind of had its day. You may also notice some odd slabs in this picture, this is because Barry’s taken the slabs across to make the patio area bigger, but now they’re a bit obvious. They’ll weather (I’m reliably being told by Barry, who’s reading over my shoulder)!
The furniture’s a set called Sienna from Homebase, black metal with a purple parasol (hence the purple flowers). We haven’t actually had the parasol up yet, what with the sun being so fickle, but I can assure you, it does look pretty good – we saw it in store.
