Romantic Gazebo Redecoration

Welcome to my romantic She Space!
Rather than a She Shed, I have created this
romantic gazebo - my She Space, in the garden.

The basic structure has been there for 16 years,
and has always had a table in it, and it has
been featured in many of my summer tablescapes.

Here is a picture of what it looked like from day to day

The chandelier was added a few years ago when
the clear crystal one became too rusted.
I guess that was the color inspiration.

Two summers ago it was featured in 
our Mother Daughter Garden Party,

and I brought this hutch down for the serving.

It was also the backdrop for a wedding reception 
a week before that.

You can tell the gazebo is well loved in our garden,
and now it is a romantic, girly spot for sitting
or even napping.

 The tufted pink velvet sofa even folds down into a bed.

The sofa is flanked by a pretty pink garden stool
and a gold and mirrored end table.

I have two antique columns that have been out under
the deck and I moved them in the gazebo.

I added pillows, a shag rug and some
acrylic legged ottomans.

 The hand painted backdrop was left in place, but sheer
curtains were layered over it.  I got the netting panels from IKEA.
I have used them in the gazebo before.  They are so inexpensive, and
come two in a package (around $6 for the package),
and I used 12 panels on the back.  The backdrop has
aged over the years, but it is a great wind break.

 The corners were also draped in netting and tied
off with artificial peonies.

Potted urns flank the front entrance.

 Hubby loves it just as much as I do.  Now he is asking
when we are going to have a party here.

Tonight I added two acrylic chairs in the front corners
but didn't get a picture.

Of course it has sprinkled almost every afternoon
since I got it decorated, but I bought a waterproof
outdoor sofa cover to keep it dry, and I grabbed
the rug and put it in the house.

If you can't get ahold of me, come into the garden.
You may find me here!

Thanks for stopping by to relax in my She Space with me.

I will be bringing my She Space to the
Garden Party with my dear friends
Linda, Liz, and Jann and others.


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
