Gazebo

We finally got a gazebo! We bought it off a family nearby who needed to get rid of it so our timing was very fortuitous. Although we bought it last Sunday, we didn’t get around to putting up the curtains on it until today. I like the double curtain idea. The inner curtain is just a mesh for insect protection and the outer one is opaque for more privacy. I can’t wait to use it.
I was really worried about drilling into our concrete patio to anchor it. My husband went to the Home Depot and ended up talking to a nice lady there who told him she just anchored hers with cinder blocks since you’re supposed to put it away in the winter. I like this idea much better. It also allows us the flexibility to move it elsewhere on the property should we change our minds.
Now I just need a patio set to put under it.

Spring garage sales are coming up...I bet you can find a great set. Even if they don't match, you can always make them a set by adding in matching cushions. Hand-knitted, of course!

Awesome score! You are going to get so much use out of that over the summer. Lucky...
