Outdoor Furniture Maintenance

A great deal of our living at Camp Ramshackle happens outside. Our actual house is quite small, so we have created a lot of outdoor spaces including an outdoor dining room. Outdoor living is great for the spirit, but the elements can be tough on the furniture.

Each time I sit down and lay my arm on the desiccated arm rest, I add a task to my list of Good Intentions to oil the outdoor furniture before it crumbles into dust.

Somehow my Good Intentions reached Action Potential and two chairs have been sanded and treated with Watco Teak Oil. I'm hoping that the thrill of accomplishment will provide the fuel to finish the other four.

I remain the optimist.
