One of the most interesting "new" products to appear on the consumer backyard scene in the last decade or so is the weatherproof outdoor storage chest. These sizable trunks offer space to store outdoor cushions, garden tools, pool accessories and more, while eliminating dampness and mildew. You can find attractive versions made from teak, all-weather wicker or durable composites. An outdoor patio storage chest is a great investment that will help extend the life of your outdoor cushions and toys. What's more, it can always work as extra seating when family and friends gather.
