ta da! come on over!
ever since my backyard chair incident (scroll to some past blog here for pix), i've needed/wanted to get some patio furniture. my patio is not huge but it's very garden"y" back there and so everytime i go to the grocery store, i've been checking out the sets and chairs they have. but then pass them by. so i decided to head out to walmart today just to look and see what they had. anyone who knows me well knows i'll wait forever to get something until i see just the right thing...hence me waiting 2 years to get my couch way back in cali (also the money saving thing, but whatever...lol)...so at walmart i saw a green padded couch, two chairs and coffee table set that was so cute! i was gonna go for it but in reality, i do not have a pickup truck and did not know if the set would a. fit in my car and b. fit on my patio. so i finally, after lots of sitting and rearranging of models, opted for THIS one :) same fabric on cushions pretty much but more bistro...i think it's bali bistro...or something fun like that :) and so the kind gentleman helped me get it off the shelf, to my car, and out of the box so the pieces would fit on the way home :) and then....i had to build it. myself. ARGH!!!! i think i read the directions out loud at least 15-20 times for the chair and i still have to tighten the table, and there's glass for the top of the table that i don't want to put on yet, but voila! i feel accomplished. and it looks good too (if i do say so myself)!
