When was the last time you ate in your own backyard? Did you have to use rocks to hold the tablecloth down from the wind, wear sunglasses to see your own plate and shield the food from bugs and dirt? A pergola provides the perfect combination of style and function for your outdoor space. Finally, you can enjoy a place to eat, entertain, and enjoy the outdoors no matter where you live. Let’s check out these easy DIY pergola tutorials! 

There are several different types of DIY pergolas. This one includes one solid wall and three open walls. Even if you have large trees on your property, they can be worked around, like this one. I love the addition of a light fixture, it really extends the living space of your home and makes the outdoors feel cozier.


    This pergola features a slide-on wire hung canopy that you can move back and forth depending on whether you need a little shade, or you’re more in the mood for sunshine.
