How I made an unused section of a deck become a favorite spot after adding a POLYWOOD La Casa Café 5-Piece Farmhouse Trestle Bar Set.
This post is sponsored by POLYWOOD, it is my favorite outdoor furniture. All selections and opinions are my own.
If you are a long time reader, then you know I like to be outside as much as I can.
In the summer, I like to take my computer outside on the deck when writing my blog posts, eat most meals outside, and have a place to entertain family and friends.
But my favorite outside pastime is simply sitting on the deck in one of these POLYWOOD rockers to enjoy the lake view.
My love of POLYWOOD outdoor furniture all started with this set of two Presidential Rocking Chairs and side table (in the picture above).
They are comfortable & stylish pieces of outdoor furniture that are good for the Earth and built to last. I can attest to these facts as my rockers are 7 years old.
The set of rockers stay out all year long in the hot summer sun, rain, and high wind that comes off the lake.
They also stay outside through the cold winters. Even with all this thrown at them throughout the change of seasons, they still look as good today as they did the day I got them.
This summer, we added a bar height table and chairs to the deck on the side of the house where we have our grill. It is an unused section of the deck as the only thing we do here is grill. And by “we”, I mean “Ed.”
Adding the table was one way we could make this section of the deck feel more a part of the main deck where we spend most of our time.
Having a fun party style bar table near the grill offers more places to sit and enjoy a drink when we entertain and Ed is grilling.
Friends and family can now sit over by the grill with him so Ed won’t feel like he is all alone while the food is cooking and everyone else is on the main part of the deck. Now he can feel like part of the party.
We wanted the table set to be POLYWOOD since we knew it would last for a very long time and is backed by a 20-Year warranty and best of all, the furniture is maintenance-free!
We also wanted a higher table and chairs so when seated, the deck railing wouldn’t block the view of the lake.
We chose the POLYWOOD La Casa Café Farmhouse Trestle Bar Set in black to coordinate with the rocking chairs we already have.
We have had the new trestle table and chairs for about 2 weeks. It has become our favorite spot to dine now, even though it wasn’t our original intention to eat meals at the table.
It was supposed to be used just for parties, but we found we really like sitting up high and getting a better view of the lake than at the table we previously used. That table is on the main section of the deck and was left by the previous owners of our home.
Is POLYWOOD Comfortable?
The rockers that we already own are so well-built and comfortable, even without cushions.
We also like the fact that POLYWOOD furniture is solid, durable and maintenance-free. It’s also beautiful with details like curved seats and foot rails to maximize comfort.
I am all about trying to help the environment and like the fact that all POLYWOOD outdoor furniture is made using recycled plastic and constructed of genuine POLYWOOD lumber, a proprietary material which includes landfill-bound and ocean-bound plastics.
Each piece of furniture is built to withstand all weather conditions- the hot sun…
…to strong winds, rain and snow.
The furniture is built to last and undergoes rigorous testing to ensure the furniture won’t splinter, crack, peel, or rot no matter what the weather conditions are.
There are several POLYWOOD furniture collections and colors from which to choose.
So no matter what your decorating style is, there’s a POLYWOOD set just right for the way you want to live outside.
How Is POLYWOOD Furniture Shipped?
All POLYWOOD furniture ships free, direct to your home regardless of the size of the order within the contiguous United States.
Each furniture piece is shipped simple knock down which means it is “partially assembled” and very easy to put together.
When you unbox it, you will find step-by-step instructions on how to finish assembling, all the screws needed and a screwdriver and a screwdriver bit for a power screwdriver.
How Long Does It Take To Assemble POLYWOOD Furniture?
Assembling one POLYWOOD chair with the included screwdriver takes about 14 minutes.
If you use a power screw driver with the included bit, assembly takes only 10 minutes for each chair. The table took about 12 minutes to put together.
The trestle table has a hole for when you want to use an umbrella with a cover that easily pops in and out for times when you don’t need an umbrella.
So now I love my deck even more that we broke the outdoor living space into zones – one for dining, chilling and now grilling. :-)
