Put a Roof On It: Protected Pergola

Make your own wood-and-metal pergola with a tightly spaced slat roof to diffuse sunlight during the day and provide a place to hang candlelit chandeliers for nighttime dining. Here, a roof and posts made of stained 1x4 pressure-treated pine surround a sturdy metal pipe frame.

Similar to shown: 16-foot 1x4s, about $4.30 each, and 10-foot lengths of ¾-inch black iron pipe, about $11 each; Lowe's
