The weather this past weekend in Sacramento was very warm. On Saturday, it was in mid 90s. However, it didn't keep me from playing in the backyard arranging the outdoor seating we purchased from World Market.
Solano". It is made of a durable resin wicker woven over a steel tube frame. The chairs feel very sturdy and well made. Both Papa Dan and I are both 6' tall and over 200lbs so construction was very important to us. The pieces came un-assembled which makes for easier transport. However, the slipper chairs were only 2 pieces which you put together yourself with the provided 6 screws making the assembly easy enough that my 5 year old son was able to help by placing the screws in place for me. Each took less than 5 minutes.
Michaels crafts and painted them a metallic gold. The temporary center console is an old sofa table made of a mix of synthetic materials to mimic stone. We had it for many years in the living room. It was originally purchased and used in Dan's old office before moving to a new location. Instead of getting rid of it right away, I used it in the backyard between the chaise lounges. It had a unattractive beige glossy finish which didn't work well with the rest of the yard so I painted it a galvanized silver.
Eventually, I want to replace it with something more utilitarian like an outdoor bar cart or buffet station with cabinets for additional storage. Although I haven't told Papa Dan yet, the chaise lounges will be replaced as well with something that coordinates with the Solano's wicker style. Unfortunately, the collection does not offer them. Stay tuned.
