We bought some outdoor furniture with the removable cushions and we have more furniture to buy. What we bought is four chairs, a table and a swing for two. Then we bought four wooden Adirondack chairs. I don’t know what will go where. The table with the four chairs is a low table so I’m thinking we’ll put that under the pergola. I also think the wooden Adirondack chairs will go under the pergola because the fire pit will be near the pergola and the wooden chairs will be easy to carry out to sit around the fire pit. The swing will probably go upstairs on the deck but I’d like some other comfy chairs up there. What I think I’d like is a sofa like thing so if I want to go out there and stretch out with a pillow and read, I can do it. I’d also like four chairs and two small tables – a table in between two chairs so if we’re sitting out with friends, we have a place to put our drinks. I’d also like ottomans for the chairs, a table and four chairs so we could eat out there if we wanted to but I’m thinking . . not all of that is going to happen.
Vince wanted to get one of those chests to put the cushions in so they aren’t left out in the weather. He found this one at Sam’s Club so he ordered it. Then I started thinking . . if we’re going to have furniture upstairs and downstairs, we should have a chest upstairs and downstairs because carrying the long cushions up and down stairs sounds like a good way to break our necks. So we ordered two of them and they arrived today.
My uncle has a smaller one and Addie calls it a treasure chest so that’s what we’re calling ours.
Those things are huge! I think they will hold the cushions and more!
Here’s the link to the ones at Amazon (because I can’t get the link from Sam’s to work for some reason) but they’re a whole lot more at Amazon than they are at Sam’s. I don’t know if your local Sam’s might have them in stock but online, they only have white ones left.
They’re called Keter 230 Gallon Deck Box and I think they’re great if you need to store things on your deck or patio. We will be able to put a lock on it if we feel the need to do so.
I did read the reviews on it at Sam’s and there are a few negative reviews but there are a lot more good reviews. So . . if you need a BIG deck storage box, please read the reviews and make up your own mind.
