If I was to pinpoint one thing that took our deck from just ok to wow, it would be the pergola. It is hands down the most beautiful thing in the backyard and adds such a richness to the deck.
When we were mapping out the design and construction plans, we weren’t sure we wanted to commit to a pergola. We had never built one before and weren’t sure we could make one that both looked beautiful and also was sturdy, as we already had a deck in place.
We put our heads together and came up with a plan to construct a pergola on our existing deck and I am so glad we just did it. Here’s a breakdown of exactly how to build a pergola.

If you have any questions about how we did it, let me know! I’m happy to share anything I may have left out of the video. I love this pergola and think it completely transforms our space!
