The Latest House Project!

I was so excited when Mike told me our handyman Gene was coming on Friday to build our pergola. Gene is awesome and has done about 75% of our big house projects but he got super busy and the pergola got put on hold. I think I’ve been waiting around 4 months for this. I guess I was putting a thing called patience to good use!

I got home from work yesterday and was so happy that I immediately went to work putting the canvas over the top of the pergola. Then I pulled the patio tables out of the shed. Then I went and took a nap. LOL

Later that evening Mike and I made a quick trip to Lowes and Target where I picked up a couple of pillows and some lights. I grabbed one hook to hang a lantern but couldn’t find one I liked. So today’s goal is to find a lantern or two. Oh and to get more lights because 1 strand of them wasn’t long enough…

But for now here’s what we have…

And now I really want concrete paint and stain to freshen up the deck. Or an outdoor rug. Why does one project always have to lead to another??

  1. Very nice! It looks like a great spot to just go and enjoy the outdoors, and even eat dinners out there :)
