What to do with ugly pergola?
When we moved into our house a couple years ago, it came with an oddly-placed free-standing pergola in the backyard next to the patio, just sitting in the grass. I think it's hideous, at least the way it's placed; it just looks awkward.
I'm looking for ideas on what to do with it... I'd rather knock the thing down, but my husband is bound and determined to use it somehow. He wants to extend the patio in some way... I'm coming around to that idea, but we have a very small budget and pouring more concrete isn't going to happen... whatever we did would be DIY.
Would pavers to extend the patio look awful next to a poured concrete one, if I could even manage the project?
Or any other ideas for what to do with this thing?
btw, the house is directly to the right of the photo.
