We confess, Austin normally has gorgeous weather---the kind of weather perfect for relaxing on porches and decks. We found ourselves on a friend's beautiful screened-in porch this weekend, only we experienced some uncharacteristic rain! Though some of our friend's furniture was shielded by the rain, many cushions, pillows and electronics had to be taken in. It got us to wondering...

Firstly, if you have an outdoor space, what sort of furniture do you have? Do you choose whatever you love, or do you avoid upholstered pieces for obvious reasons?

Share any outdoor furniture secrets you've discovered!
