Last week I updated my backyard gazebo, with a little help from Goodwill, of course!
I purchased new cushions for my patio furniture from Lowes along with three different colors of coordinating spray paint, then I went to Goodwill to search for some items to give my gazebo a fresh new look.
First, I added a large green drape as the backdrop and accented with white and blue curtains on each side. The blue “curtains” are actually flat sheets since I couldn’t find blue curtains in the drapery section. These curtains are on the north side of the gazebo and will get just a bit of direct sunlight but not enough to completely fade them. I love adding curtains to my gazebo because not only do they give shelter from the hot Arizona sun but they also add a bit of coziness and color to the space, not to mention they hide a block wall behind them.
I’ve got plenty of Goodwill finds from my gazebo to share so stay tuned.
In the mean time, which look do you like better, last season’s gazebo or the new one?
Have a beautiful Spring day!

Let’s get social:
I showed this DIY to my mum who said ‘that’s so 70’s’ but I still like it! Sometimes when all you feel like wearing is a tshirt and jeans, a big statement necklace is just the thing to make it special. Macrame is so easy to pick up too. If you want a smaller pendant, use smaller string. Just don’t wear it with bell bottoms or you’ll get looks from my mum!
Are you feeling lucky? Show it off with this adorable DIY embroidery project from Design Sponge! Whether used to jazz up a wardrobe standard or a new favorite, this is definitely a fun activity I cannot wait to try.
