Prime Purchases: Patio Edition

 Now that we've cleaned off the deck and patio and we're gearing up for warm weather, that will hopefully be arriving soon and sticking around for awhile, I headed to Amazon and ordered quite a few things to help keep us organized and comfy. 



We needed a new rug as the old one fell apart.  I ordered this one from Amazon and I just love the color and the material. It feels like it will hold up really well to the sun, sand, and water. 






We had an old grill basket for grilling vegetables outside but most of the non-stick coating had been scratched off.  We decided to try out this stainless steel basket for easier cleaning; without a non-stick coating I can wash it using our chainmail scrubber without worrying about ruining the finish. 





We had small storage cabinet on the patio that stores all our life jackets, sunscreen, etc. and it got destroyed this winter.  I knew I needed something to replace that and with the same approximate dimensions in mind I headed to Amazon. I found this great storage shed with shelves that I can not wait to arrive and put together. 



After Ian spent all winter repainting and making the old jet ski look like new we wanted to buy a cover for it.  We also needed a cover for the new jet ski we just got at the end of last season.  We have this one for the WaveRaider but we're still on the hunt for one that will fit the Sea Doo.  


I finally got annoyed with all the kayaks/ canoe/ paddles taking up so much space lying side by side on our patio that I broke down and bought a kayak storage rack. Ian put it together one afternoon and I just LOVE it! It's so well made and holds all 6 of our kayaks (we store my mom and step-father's kayaks here too).   It's on wheels for easy moving and the padded arms hold the kayaks secure. 



And while this was purchased last May as my Mother's day gift I did want to mention my favorite Amazon patio piece-- my hanging lounge chair.  It is so comfortable!

  1. Love the hanging chair and also your patio carpet. It's so amazing that you are able to make all these great purchases on amazon. Here I have to wait for the items to be sent from abroad and shipping is high. Enjoy your patio! #MMBC

    1. We are really fortunate to have Amazon as an option because we don't have many stores around us.

  8. The rug is lovely but my favourite is your storage shed, oh yes, I really need one of those. I like the chair too, but I'm not a sun lover so I wouldn't get much use out of it.

    1. I love that they enable me to cook the whole meal on the grill and I don't have to run back and forth between the house and the grill.

  17. I can imagine how good that kayak storage made you feel! I have a similar issue with fishng rods that I need to address.

    1. Yes! I have my eye on a fishing rod station that organizes all the poles and tackle boxes but the one I want is not available right now. We must have a good 1/2 dozen of them floating around and I know my son was already talking about getting a new rod and reel with his birthday money.

  18. I definitely need to invest in a stand alone hammock/lounge chair for myself for reading in the backyard. The one you have looks so comfy!

  21. We had those very striped outdoor rugs. I loved them. But our very, very strong sun was hard on them. I bet they will last much longer for you.
    That hanging lounge chair would divine in MY backyard!! Going to check it out.

    1. I figure they wont last forever but they should be able to make it longer than one season like our last rug.
