We have had this patio set for YEARS!!!!!!! Notice the forest green colored chair? Boring! But the set was still in great shape. We've gone through several umbrellas over the years (thanks to wonderful west winds). I of course got so excited about repainting it that I didn't get any good "before" pictures, oops! I disassembled the table and coated it with primer before I remembered to take the before pics! I'm on the look out for the perfect umbrella! I just love the new bright summery green!!!
