We got a gazebo! I’m excited and I’m getting straight to the point in this post. We got a gazebo!
I quickly snapped some photos of it yesterday in between rain showers. It’s been raining here pretty much everyday for the last week so I haven’t been able to get any good photos yet, but I couldn’t wait any longer to share the news.
We’ve considered getting a gazebo since we installed our patio two years ago. I found a great deal on this one at the Christmas Tree Shops and decided to get it. I’m so happy I did!
It’s a 10’ by 10’ gazebo and we’re furnishing it with the patio furniture we already own, including our wicker loveseat and the coffee table I spray painted. I added had a small green rug that I had once bought for my kitchen but it wasn’t a good fit.
I’m still in the process of decorating and would like it to feel like I’m relaxing on vacation, but I’m trying to find a balance so I don’t overdue it with too much kitschy beach décor.
…but I’ve already bought two cutesy welcome signs!
The main reason we wanted to a gazebo is for privacy since we’re so close to our neighbors and they can peak into our yard. The gazebo makes our patio seem a little more private. It came with mosquito netting which can be tied back or zipped to enclose the entire gazebo. In addition to keeping flying critters out, it also adds a nice feeling of privacy. Plus it has a pretty breezy look.
Now you know where to find me on the weekends- relaxing in the gazebo! I still plan to decorate it some more, but I’m enjoying it already! What are your thoughts on patio gazebos? Are you a fan?
