Fast forward and now our pergola is done! We planted grape vines, one in each corner. They’re really thriving due to our good California weather. We even have our first cluster of tiny, baby grapes. (see below photo) Our own “Napa” dining room in the backyard is not too far off…I can’t wait!
Try not to look at our junk and mess. We’re not really very neat DIY people. It’s like, heh, I’ll deal with the mess when it’s all done. Not to mention it’s been sooooo hot lately!
Our first grapes! Maybe owning a winery is in my future…a girl can and should dream!
I found these white patio chairs at Homegoods. (my absolute favorite store) They’re so chic, comfy, weatherproof and the price was right. They’re not exactly like the ones from my inspiration page, but I can see they’re going to work in the end. Okay, so I don’t need the gazing balls but I think they’ll be like the jewels at the end…I had to have them! Table hunting is over too. Hurray! We looked everywhere…it’s really a challenge to find a table for outside that seats 8 and doesn’t break the bank while still having the “cool factor”. I think we did it though. It’s being shipped, so it’ll be a surprise…stay tuned!
