Storing Patio Furniture

Is your backyard shed so full of patio furniture you can’t store anything else? Here are some solutions for storing patio furniture.
Elizabeth, Nikki’s Professional Organizer, is working with the whole family to get the backyard shed organized. They have emptied the shed and Mark has put up some shelves. As they were sorting the items that came out of the shed, it was obvious to Elizabeth why the shed was so disorganized.
In the winter when the patio furniture is in the shed, there is no room to move. Anything that hasn’t been put away before the furniture goes in gets mounded on top of the table and chairs. As they took out the chairs, Nikki realized that the chair cushions were getting ruined by all the junk loaded on them all winter.
Elizabeth has two suggestions to solve the problem and create more space in the shed. The easiest solution is to purchase a cover that will fit over the table and chairs protecting them during the winter. An internet search will find covers in a variety of sizes and styles. Nikki likes the cover idea. Given the variability of the weather she would love to be able to sit on the patio in the fall and spring. With more room in the shed, the cushions can be stored on shelves and easily retrieved for those beautiful fall and spring days.
Elizabeth’s second proposal is to hang the furniture from the shed or garage ceiling during the winter. There are many different types of hanging systems. Some are available at hardware stores and even more selection is available online. Mark likes this idea because it would get the furniture completely out of the way.
As the discussion about the best storage method heats up, Elizabeth tells Nikki and Mark she is not a marriage counselor, and they will have to work out a solution themselves.
