We had thought about getting a new gazebo for our deck for awhile. Both of my cousins have them on their deck and I love that they not only block the sun, but keep a lot of bugs out as well! When the umbrella to our patio set broke, it was either get a new umbrella or see if we could find a gazebo that would fit our deck. I finally found a gazebo that worked and that's what we went with. So far...I love it! It looks so pretty and we were able to enjoy dinner out on the deck without all the nasty bugs Sunday night! I hope it holds up through the winter! Fingers crossed!!!
