It’s been a long time!

A couple of posts ago I mentioned the project in process was the pergola.  We finally got everything done and love sitting out there.  It’s so cozy and feels like an actual room.  Well I ended up not having to make the shades or curtains as I found them already made in outdoor fabric at reasonable prices!  Excellent news for me because other projects have come up. 
One of those projects is our wedding!  In June we were engaged and have set a date of 5/19/2012 for the wedding.  Most posts until then will probably be about projects related to the wedding 🙂
For now though, here are pictures of the pergola…
The furniture is from American Sale.  They price match so shop around.   After we found what we wanted I looked online to find it cheaper and did so we went back in told them we found it for less and they beat the price! 
The curtains and curtain rods came from Improvements Catalog.  I came across them, got on their mailing list and got a coupon! 

The shades I actually got through Ace Hardware so working for them has perks 🙂  They are by Cooloroo and Ace is  retailer that sells them so I got those at a good price too!

I’m not going to say where the ceiling fans came from because they may have been from an ‘orange’ competitor!  Sometimes your options are limited and finding ceiling fans with a wet rating isn’t something you find everywhere.

If you didn’t guess by those 3 things I’m all about finding bargains and shopping around.  Sometimes it may take a little bit of time to search but Google is great and you’ll find what you want and save a little money.
