Slightly Shadowy

Materials: 4 SEMINE Panel Curtains, a few screws

Description: A very very simple hack: using an existing pergola as a shade, by overlaying 4 Semine Panel Curtains in a zig-zaging pattern. The textile is strong enough as to be tensed on every step by using small screws. The pergola’s wide was almost the exact panel wide. Lucky me.

    Looks lovely, but is it easy to take down for Succot?

    Yep big chance that poop will be a problem.

  4. But can you wash poop off of it? (Seriously, my tarp over the pergola (also here in Israel!) gets covered by pigeon poop!) Does SEMINE wash / hose off?
