One Idea Becomes Another!

What started as an idea to use Lorie’s old gazebo frame as a structure to support some triumph vines, took on a life of its. After putting it together we soon found out it would not be strong enough. I asked Mike to add some wood beams to the corners. That led to a top, a shelf and lattice to the back for some privacy to our little garden get-away. We now have a VERY NICE pergola. Didn’t Mike do an awesome job? Then I said we didn’t need the gazebo frame anymore. We will paint it all white next year giving the green treated wood time to dry. I did find another use for Lorie’s old gazebo frame. I took it apart and attached them to the fence and will plant some more triumph vine to give the fence some vertical interest.
