BFD Patio Time: Patio Furniture That Doesn’t Suck

As evidenced by recent postings on Instagram:

We are again redoing the garden… But like a totally different part of the garden? So ya, goodbye planters, hello wood platform that leads over to the BBQ area! (We used the wood from planters to build part of said area #recyclecycle)  And have no fear, the full update will be coming soon, after the new gate is done, and those patio stones get sorted as of course when we decided we wanted to get more of them we were told they are no longer being made and were part of a one off stone order the landscaping place doesn’t carry anymore. FML. Who needs some gently used patio stones? #jokingnotjoking

Now that that is underway, someone naturally got stuck in to looking at furniture.. As one does… When one is not allowed any more garden furniture. Lucky for YOU! Decor porn for me! (win/win) The List of Craig is actually rather unhelpful in this capacity as it’s pretty mch just furniture places in Woodbridge posting their wares, and not a lot of good second hand deals to be found. BUT what I did find was some affordable options that may not require a second mortgage (why the EFF is garden furniture so expensive?) AND aren’t ugly. Impossible you say? Check it!

CANVAS Tofino Collection from CanadianTire.ca (YES, Canadian TIRE!) From $249.99 

Can you believe it’s really taken this long for an affordable Wicker-Look option to be available? Like the wicker look is literally BASED ON WICKER. So like, why the gross brown all the time? This is much more fresh and modern, and you can add to it as you configure so you don’t need to blow the entire budget right away.

The table is $249 and the chairs and sectional pieces increase from there to $350. So, again, not like the cheapest, but certainly not out of the ballpark either…

Kelowna Collection by Canvas from CanadianTire.ca Starting at $150

FYI: the side table is $150, so REALLY the chairs etc start at $250, and the most expensive  piece is $450 which is the corner chair below . You don’t necessarily need the corner piece either, so again, buy in pieces and then see how you’re feeling. Unless you don’t like options, then get the whole thing and you’re still coming in at around $1,000…

Glynn 4 Piece Sofa Set with Cushions from CAD $591.99 at Wayfair.ca

Cannot believe how good looking, well reviewed and affordable this set is! Like ya the cushions are not huge, but people it on Muskoka chairs for hours on end, so that’s not a deal breaker for some people. Made of acacia wood, this is an excellent starter set and would also work on a condo balcony with some nice greenery and hanging plants… Oooooh planters!

 

CB2 Zola Planters

zola planters from cad $20.76 at CB2.com 

We have 2 of the hanging version and they were less than $30 each. Hanging photos to come…

Have a very Happy Victoria Day Weekend!
