Last year, we’d completed our pallet lounge set with an integrated garden box. But we weren’t done! We’ve finally completed our Pergola Addition to our Pallet Lounge Set.

About our Pergola Addition to our Pallet Lounge Set:

Although we’d finished our Pallet Lounge Set, we didn’t have time to varnish it all. Plus, we wanted to add a Pergola. The best part about this step of the project was that we didn’t have to drill into the cement patio foundation. We mounted the Pergola structure to our very sturdy Pallet Lounge Set.

We built the Pergola using as much pallet wood as we could. This was found most notably in the brackets and supporting decorative structures. What we couldn’t get from pallets, we obtained by upcycling or finally purchasing. We supported the roof frame using metal T-brackets to secure the pieces together.  Finally, we “roofed” the structure using reed fencing material to provide shade, but still allow dappled lighting to shine through.

Pergola Addition to our Pallet Lounge Set – finishing touches:

I installed some curtain rods and hung some white, gauzy curtains to provide some privacy and create an intimate lounge space. You could use upcycled materials, such as wooden dowels, old curtain rods, pieces of pipe (metal or PVC), or even more rustic versions if you’re feeling extra creative – like long branches!

Next, we added some lattice to one side, to subtly hide the outside plumbing/ducting. More fun touches included wires that we ran both vertically and horizontally to provide structure for climbing vines (flowering or garden variety). We can’t wait to see how it looks when those grow!

Finally, we finished everything with a varnish to seal it and protect it from the elements. We’re extremely proud with our entire Pergola Addition to our Pallet Lounge Set, and we encourage you to give it a try too!

EDITOR’S NOTE: ALWAYS check with your local planning, zoning, and/or code enforcement departments. Structural requirements vary, and there may be rules regarding permanent or movable structures, height requirements, easements, anchoring, permitting and inspection needs. This also goes for sheds or other structures on your property.
