Outdoor furniture / cupboard - Idea's?

OK,

So here is the deal.

I'm looking for some sort of 'outdoor cupboard' that is big enough to store stuff on the balcony (covered - and generally protected from rain, but not temperature etc.).

As it's on a balcony, it has to be 'tasteful' in appearence, but sturdy enough with it's material to resist light weathering.

Any idea's where I would find such an item?

(I was thinking Aluminium and glass, but I'm open to suggestions)



...... posting the word "IKEA" would indicate this might not be the right solution for me.

Thanks

Re: Outdoor furniture / cupboard - Idea's?

I have seen upright cupboard type storage lockers as well as trunk style ones, made out of heavy-duty plastic that has been texturized to look like wood, would something like that work?

I saw them at Coop Bau + Hobby but I'd imagine they'd be available at Obi, Hornbach and Jumbo as well.

In a strange way this is very cool....... but unfortunately, not quite what I need.

Thanks for the pic though - idea's for the future maybe

Thanks, I might check out the Coop Bau + Hobby.

This might be perfect.

THere are some cupboards that have a plastified cover (not the nicest look but might help you) I have seen them at the Jumbo...
