In time I hope to find the perfect patio furniture covers for my patio set. I’ve done a bit of hunting so far and I am not going to give up until I find success. Now that summer is around the corner, my kids want to have every meal outside. That means that almost every evening after I get home from work, I’m washing the top of my patio table with a brush and a bucket of warm soapy water.

Without annual or bi-annual maintenance my patio furniture really can show its age. I have some great patio furniture. It’s the kind that looks a lot more expensive than it really is. I was able to get it for half price at Lowes about five years ago and I have loved it ever since. The other reason I am searching for some new patio furniture covers is that the elements can be unkind to the finish. The furniture has really aged fairly well but it takes some diligent annual maintenance.

Every autumn we have a fall clean up tradition that involves the whole family and a few family friends. We spend the day outside coiling hoses and trimming back perennials, etc. My job (or perhaps I’m the only one prepared to do it) is to shine up the patio furniture so it looks great in the spring. Each year, I lightly sand the table and chairs, re-apply a thing coat of stain and then rub some outside furniture oil into the wood. The patio furniture really looks fresh and new afterwards and I know it can withstand the coming snows. Having some new outdoor patio furniture covers might allow me to re-finish the table and chairs every second year.

Basically I want new outdoor patio furniture so I can work less. I don’t want to wash the table 3 or 4 times per week and I’d prefer not to have to refinish the table every fall. There are remarkably few stores that stock these covers. The covers I have seen were either overly priced, darn ugly or the wrong size. Furthermore, I have spoken to my extended family about buying covers and it would appear they aren’t a must-have item for this year.

Now that I have realized the work these covers are going to save me I want them even more. I don’t need to the covers for the winter as I am OK with using a big tarp to cover everything. This is what I need: 1- The covers need to be water resistant and machine washable, 2- They need to be a neutral but pretty colour. I have my heart set on light yellow but would also consider green; and 3- They need to be inexpensive. In my mind, I should be able to cover 4 chairs and a 4.5 foot square patio table for less than 50 bucks.

Buying outdoor patio furniture covers can be harder than you think. When you factor in price, colour, and quality you greatly narrow the field. Furthermore, I find the covers are less available than I would have thought. I am seriously considering having these covers custom made. I’m going to write articles and blog on patio furniture covers until I finally find a set that suits me.
