My patio idea -am I missing something?
I recently bought a darling old, heavy, solid wood armoire from CL. I'm painting it in exterior paint and will use it on the patio to store cushions, etc. We've also added an outdoor rug, and have a couple of adirondack chairs. So my wheels are spinning, and I'm thinking, how cool would it be to put a daybed out there! This isn't a covered patio. It's up against the house, but completely exposed. So my idea is to encase the mattress itself in two layers of those zip around plastic mattress covers. And then to make a cover for it out of sunbrella fabric. Add some pillows, etc. The pillows can be stored in the armoire when there is threat of rain. But the mattress of course will be out there all the time. The frame will be primed and painted with exterior paint. This is Houston, so no snow but plenty of humidity. Is this a cool idea or a stupid idea?
