I learned a new word today…Pergola. We are building one, but I didn’t know what to call it!

After googling gazebo and porch ideas, I stumbled on some photos of what I had in mind and discovered it had a name!!

Our insurance company is requiring some porch railings on two of the three porches that are on the new house.

Daryl has started on one of the porches.


It’s a great start and I think enough, for now, to satisfy the insurance company. We plan to finish it in August when he has more time.

So now that I know what I’m looking for, I found some ideas that I love!


Love the fabric detail and the slatted top!


Here it is at night with little white lights.



I stole this photo because the bottom picture shows a brown porch with white railings and a white gazebo. Because the trim on our house is white, I think the Pergola is also going to be white.

I can’t wait to have some beautiful fabric, white lights, and a sweet candle light supper!! That setting is fit for ANY guest!
