Something new for the Patio

All Summer I have carted the cushions and pillows from the patio inside to the breakfast room when there was a chance of rain. UGH. Not only was it a pain, it looked horrible to have all that stuff in the breakfast room but there was no other choice. Not anymore!!! We finally got a storage box that doubles as a coffee table on the patio. WHOO HOO!!! This fish actually holds a votive candle too. Perfect for the patio by the pond!
 The seat cushions on this bench and the glider and the 4 throw pillows all fit in the storage box!!!
 I styled it with a plant and  lantern and this cute frog!
 I love the faux wickre and it is completely lined with plastic to keep the cushions dry!

 Some times I put one of the fish here.

 When we have guests it acts as a coffee table for snacks and drinks. LOVE!!!

  1. What a super storage solution that faux wicker ottoman provides. Functional and looks great. Is that a Maidenhair Fern you have? It is quite beautiful. ~~~Waving~~~from Across The Pond

  2. Love your patio, it always looks so inviting. Such a great spot to entertain too.

  3. Hi Pinky, I believe I have that very same storage box. It does hold a lot of things. So handy and pretty too. Your patio looks great. xo

  4. Love it, very welcoming! Thanks so much for sharing at #tuesdaygardenparty!

  5. I wonder why it takes so very long for your photos to load? I don't seem to have that trouble on any other site. I really do want to see your pics!

  6. What a great idea to use the storage trunk for a coffee table. I love that it is doing double duty. The cushions and pillows still look so beautiful so your efforts have kept them looking new!

  7. What a great idea...both beautiful and functional!!!
    Just love your deck!!

  8. Your patio looks wonderful, Pinky. I love the outdoor wicker chest. Great addition!

  9. Your patio looks wonderful Pinky. The wicker storage chest is an attractive solution to storing the patio cushions. I could use one on my patio for sure. I had been buying covers for everything on the patio but they are so expensive and only last one or two seasons.

  10. What a great solution for where to store the cushions! Mine are under a roof, but need to be brought in when winter arrives. Your patio is lovely. I'm glad I found this at the #ThursdayFavoriteThingsBlogHop !

  11. It looks terrific. The perfect place to sit with a good book or just listen to the birds singing. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop. Hugs!


Thanks you for leaving your lovely comments. xo, Pinky
