I know that in some parts of the country you are enjoying sunshine, flowers starting to bud, and nice green grass. (you luckies!) Here in my little neck of the woods we still have snow. I am dreaming of warmer days filled with backyard BBQs, homemade ice cream, and tall glasses of lemonade. We finished up our deck last fall (at least 90% of it), and I cannot wait to actually enjoy it for the first time!
Funny story. Empire Patio Covers contacted me and asked if I'd like to do a review and giveaway of their patio furniture covers. Most of our furniture was already covered, but we did have a side table that needed a cover. Turns out it's a funky size, and they didn't have a cover that would fit it. So I was going to get a cover for our air conditioner. Turns out it's so old and bulky that the covers weren't large enough to fit it.
I was not about to give up. I did what any other
crazy sane person would do. I went out and bought a fire pit so that we could get a free cover for it. WHAT, you don't think that's totally normal? Hey, we'd been wanting one. And it was Valentine's Day and I needed a gift idea. So it's not as bad as it sounds. I was totally justified. Right?
Here is our fire pit. Can't wait till warm weather comes and we can actually use it!
Here it is all snug and warm and protected from the snow underneath our new Empire fire pit cover. I ordered the Classic nutmeg, but they also sell a more heavy duty variety of patio covers. The nutmeg just happened to match our furniture perfectly, so I went for looks instead of function. Sometimes I'm shallow like that.
Oh, and here's a friendly little tip. Just in case you get a furniture cover and it doesn't seem to be fitting, adjust the straps underneath.
Because you don't want to be swearing, twisting and pulling with all your might and wondering why the heck your 36" cover won't fit over your 36" fire pit and then have your husband ask if you noticed the adjustable straps. Just sayin. (BTW, thanks to my helpful hubbie who is always bailing me out.)
