Rumpole revealed that she attached the cheap shower curtain over the top of her pergola to create a stylish but effective sunshade. 

She said: “Sew two shower curtains together and add cup hooks for a cheap sunshade for the patio.

“My area is tiki themed and I bought these on Amazon last year for £5 each.

“The eyelets attach to the cup hooks so the job took an hour with my mum sewing it seam to seam.
