Patio set score at Ikea
Jen and I hit the Bolingbrook Ikea today, and we were like kids in a candy store. Kids without tons of cash to spend, but the prices are excellent and there's soooo much to choose from.
I finally found my patio set, or at least part of it. This table caught my eye and it was love at first sight. Great price, sturdy construction, and look—two leaves for extra seating!
There were several styles of chairs that went with the table, including a bench and big arm chairs. I figured these folding chairs were a nice compromise (and the cheapest solution). I hate spending lots of money on something if I don't have to, and the chairs seemed nice and comfy. But it turns out they're out of stock and you can't order them.
So I'm probably going back to get these tomorrow. They're a nice mid-level chair, and you can adjust the back five different ways. And when I sat in them, I felt so comfy.
There are only 17 in stock now, and most people buy four or more when buying a set. So back to Ikea I go, bright and early tomorrow, to finish off my patio set. Now to find those lovely Italian lights to hang....
