Ikea Outdoor Furniture Rave

I've been in the market for an outdoor dining set for some time but just couldnt bare shelling out $800+ for some of the sets I was loving. The West Elm version I wanted was $1499!! Forget it. I live in the Pacific Northwest, We wont use the set year round, it'll go in the shed when the winter comes back around.
So you can imagine my pleasant surprise when I spotted the Falster set online, at Ikea. I went there the same day because it just so happened to be on a big sale, and snatched it up. I paid a few bucks over 500 for the whole set. ( 4 chairs, bench and table AND the massive umbrella and stand )







Not too bad huh!
Blogging and finishing up client work outside is pretty refreshing..


Enjoy your week ya'll!

  1. LOVE this! I love the clean lines of the table and bench! I'll have to come over the next sunny day we get and we can drink our americanos at the table while the nuggets chase the chickens!

  3. Does your Falster furniture stain with grease and wine? Ours does and we have a hard time cleaning it. Ours is grey though, how is brown? We might take it back and get brown.

  5. We too have run into the stain problem. It is just as bad on the brown version as it is with the grey one. Looking for solutions...we are very disappointed.

    1. Yes, I have had the same problem with stains. The internet has been of no help to me. I am thinking of experimenting with mineral oil...?

  6. Same problem with our brand new grey set, I'm taking it back. Dawn and magic eraser hasn't worked for me, we've had it a week. It also scratches ridiculously easily! A fingernail leaves a mark.

  13. I was just going to go pick up that same table but I'm concerned about the stains. Has anyone tried a sealer or protectant of some sort?

  14. I've tried everything to get the stains out, but to no avail. I've had the set for almost 90 days, debating what to do about it. I love the look of it, but I don't think I can get past the staining. I get that it's outdoor furniture and therefore doesn't need to look perfect, but mine just looks awful at this point and I hate even looking at it. I think I've finally decided to return it. Ugh. Not sure what to get instead.

  15. I purchased the table used and it didn't have any stains. The former owners must not have used it because our very first meal left a grease-stained mess. I have tried Awesome, which cleans everything but not this table, Dawn, Magic Eraser and none have worked. Now I have to keep a table cloth on it. I can't believe IKEA sells this product.

  18. We all are quiet bored by working in the same place and same atmosphere, be it home or other place. This idea looks very good. "Blogging and finishing up client work outside is pretty refreshing". best nursery glider

  19. This set is a disaster. Can you say greasy mess that doesn't clean up? I'm throwing it out- unfortunately too late to return. Avoid this crappy table at all costs!!!!!

  20. I'm thinking about buying just the chairs to go around a fire pit. Should I be worried about staining or is that more of a problem with the table?

  21. Our grey set is stained bad too. Which is extremely unfortunate because we have over 14 pieces of it! I'm hoping a little power washing might help?
