    Very, very nice.

    Sweet. In Petworth, that furniture would last about 6 hours of darkness before being stolen.

      I was *just* wondering how the movable planters and un-anchored patio furniture hadn’t been stolen yet! Another +1 for the “not buying real estate in Petworth” column.

        I was thinking the same thing (except without the “don’t buy in Petworth” sentiment).

    I know where I’m getting some new patio furniture…

  • BDale Res

    The folks that live there/hang-out there are also very friendly. It is amazing none of that has been stolen. Maybe that neighborhood isn’t as shady as people on this website make it out to be…. hmm….

      Yeah, this is making me want to do my patio up. Been holding off on account of theft concerns. I’m going to check this house out in a couple weeks to see if it’s all still there.

      These “conversation sets” are really nice for hanging out. We actually do use ours for morning coffee/mojitos and have met so many neighbors and people passing though that way. The furniture also makes the entrance to the house more inviting. We just got our set a couple months ago and I feel it’s already paid itself off.

    Time to put together my Clash cover band’s first hit, “Rock the Patio.” B-side will be “Rock the Roof Deck.”

    If I were a bum, this is where I’d hang out with my 40 of Hurricane(in a paper bag, of course). :-)

    PoP was crashing the patio with his own cup of Joe’s (first pic) =))

  • SF

    Stuff like this reminds me why I love this city.

    Looks like it’s set up for a magazine photo shoot! Nicely done homeowners. Way to make the most of your property!

    If it was a bicycle, it would have been stolen. I live in Bloomingdale and had someone break into my back room in broad daylight to steal my bike (again).

  • Bloomingdale

    Hey POP is that your coffee cup sitting on the corner in the first picture? I bet you sat down your Big Bear coffee cup to take a picture. : )

    Bloomingdale is getting to be the BOMB

  • Caroline

    Hard to tell from the pictures, but it’s possible they have the big pieces discretely chained to something. That’s what I did with my front patio furniture. It still leaves the coffee table and cushions up for grabs, but despite being on a busy block nothing’s been stolen yet. That said, if anyone has suggestions for securing those pieces I’d love to hear your ideas.

  • geeeeeeebs

    i feel like its one of those things where it seems like they are probably about to come out to sit on it so no one ever bothers stealing it

  • Allison

    Maybe the coffee table is secured through the legs by some kind of clever cement bolt; or some really really hardcore rubber cement (would at least make taking it difficult.)
