Outdoor Furniture Refinishing?

We've had some really great weather this week.  It's interesting how this time of year it gets nice and warm during the day, but it really cools down in the evenings.  I was tempted to change out of my shorts this evening because I was getting cold.  Instead I just closed the garage door so I didn't have that cool breeze blowing through the kitchen - and then I washed dishes and got all warm!

When summer gets here, it will be just the opposite.  Well, not actually cold - but during the day it will be nice and pleasant in the house, with a good breeze blowing through.  Then, come evening, the breeze will die down, and the guys will come home and start complaining about how hot it is.  Why can't it just cool down in the evenings like it does this time of year?  I wouldn't have anybody complaining about how I don't want to turn the air conditioner on.

I am looking forward to the warmer weather - because I like it! And because we'll start using the deck more.  I love being able to sit out there and enjoy our coffee in the mornings and having dinner out there in the evenings.  It's usually much cooler outside in the evenings than in the house, so it's great having the deck available.  Maybe someday we'll get tired of it, but since we've only had the deck for a few years, we're still appreciating it.  All our deck furniture is still in pretty good shape too, so we're not ready to think about outdoor furniture refinishing yet, but it's a good idea to keep in mind.

Actually, it's not something I ever would have thought of until I started reading through the services offered by the Patio Guys in California.  Instead of buying new outdoor furniture, you can have it completely refinished.  They make old patio furniture look like new.  They update everything - paint, strap, fabric - and save their customers up to 70% compared to the cost of buying new.  All it takes is one call.  They'll pick up your old furniture, restore and refinish it, and deliver it back to you looking like new.  Not only can it save you money, but it's good for the environment, too - fewer old patio sets going into the landfill!  Patio Guys has over 30 years of experience, and all work is done by trained technicians in their factory.  Judging from the customer comments, they do great work and offer exceptional customer service.

If you're in the Southern California area and have some old patio furniture you were thinking of replacing, why don't you give them a call first.  It couldn't hurt, right?  Save some money; take care of the environment; and enjoy some brand new (looking) outdoor furniture.
