Our new Crate & Barrel umbrella has gotten a lot of exercise over the last few weeks; it’s 9-foot wingspan brings generous shade to our deck, a luxury on any given sunny afternoon when I (or the dog, or friends stopping by for burgers) want to relax in the shade.
There are long-term plans to upgrade to a larger outdoor table since the glass top piece we have now is a short 42″, but it’s not in the budget immediately (yo, those sets are e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e). Outdoor furniture investments aside, my personal convictions lead me down a path of “it’s not broken, so why replace it so fast?”. And that’s why in this week’s post for DIY Network, you’ll see how I decided to upgrade my current outdoor set and save some serious dinero. It’s an easy a cure-all, and it that might just be what you need too. Check it out for yourself.
