Drum Roll~The Pergola is Finished

Hello Everyone 
Wow! I'm so happy to share with you the fabulous pergola in our outdoor garden area.
 My sweetheart finished the pergola and it's fabulous. 

Last week I showed  how the posts were set into the ground for this beautiful structure. HERE

The week before I had the plan. I love this photo HERE 

I love the details

The arch supports and beams are very sturdy

Some of the beams are in place. It was a beautiful fall day to be working on a project with a labor of love.

The end trim is great and it gives the ends of the beams character and design. 

The trees have changed from fall to early winter and the new pergola has a fresh coat of paint.

The paint is to protect the wood from the hot summers and cold winters.

The canvas is bare and I'm willing to work and design a beautiful space for afternoon tea and a restful place to  read and relax in the Spring and Summer and Winter and Fall.


Now it's time to share with all my blogging friends and followers The first project for 2012.

  10. So fantastic- well done! Thanks for sharing at Feathered Nest Friday!

  11. I would’ve hidden the nails as much as possible. But then, yeah, I find the details lovely too! What did you decide to put under it? I think furniture outside the neutral shade would give a nice combination. Though, I already like that it’s simple-looking with a nice shape and size. :)
