With spring here and warm dry weather hopefully around the corner I have had the patio on my mind. Every year I like to make it just a bit better of a place to hangout and this year will be no different. I have a substantial list this year that includes planting installations, painting the awning frame, and creating custom cushions for the new patio chairs. The chairs we had been using the past couple years were starting to look rather hit, and to be honest, they were never really that comfortable anyway. Last November, on one of my thrifting excursions, I found a set of four wrought iron patio chairs that were just perfect. They were in great condition and just needed a little cleaning and paint.
