All Things Cedar Review/giveaway 5/30

All Things Cedar wanted to be featured on Locomotion of Expressions and hey, of course I think that's great! You should think it's great too, because if you win, you will win the same thing I got to review (below) this wonderful trellis screen!!! Please bear in mind, you will only receive 1 screen, not the 2 pictured. Should you win, and decide to order another, you can get 20% off!!!

So, why cedar?
Because is a lightweight and dimensionally stable wood that lies flat and stays straight, which means it resists the natural tendency. Most people do not know that Pine has 2 1/2 times more water content than Cedar. The excessive moisture in pine logs can lead to a host of problems. That's one reason is that it has naturally lower moisture content than pine, and years of hassle free enjoyment for you.

I loved this trellis screen and it definitely gives my front porch a more closed off feeling and makes it seem more inviting and cozy!


Can be used as a single panel or as a hinged set. Additional panels can be added to form an attractive butterfly garden screen or patio divider. Cover with vines and create a very cozy and effective privacy wall or screen out unsightly areas.






Patio Screen Features Include:

  • Clear Western Red Cedar Product
  • 1/2" Thick Lattice
  • Zinc Plated Hardware
  • Hinges (Included with twin Panel Set)

Benefits:

  • Handcrafted for snug-fitting parts
  • Fully Illistrated instructions
  • Pre-drilled holes

Size:W x D x H
Each Panel33 x 2 x 84 in.


The cost of ONE panel is $119 CAD but if you order 2 you save even more because the cost for the set is $198 CAD. AllThingsCedar.ca is a Canadian site, so this giveaway is open to Canada! Sweet!~ It was extremely easy to put together, was shipped nicely and arrived undamaged. Overall my experience with them was A+!



At the end of this giveaway, if you do not win, and find something you want to order from there. Just mention that you found them here, on Locomotion of Expressions and you will get 20% off your initial order, and will get an awesome bonus freebie of a free birdhouse !!!
Initially I wasn't sure if I wanted to paint it white, but in the end, I decided to just leave it natural. I will put a finish on it, when I am ready to mount it. Since I do not have another to hinge it to, I will mount it to the wall pf my house, or hang it by a hook, right now I am unsure. The hubby is currently deployed, and I am unskilled in the department of woodworking and general home maintenance, so I figured I will add it to his honey-do list for when he comes back!



My favorite item on their site is the Adirondack chair! I also love this Pergola Garden Swing!!! What's yours? 



So what do you think? Does it look good?


SIDE NOTE!
Unfortunately All Things cedar come to find out has a horrible Customer Service rep named Brian. He withheld my winners prize until I posted on Amazon a review, and the Trellis wasn't even on Amazon is the funny thing. Real mature, right? When I pointed out it was petty, he got really mad, instead of simply apologizing for his ignorance on dealing with bloggers. In any case, they ship very slow, so just beware this company a little bit. The trellis is nice, the "Customer Service/Marketing" ... ehhh- not so much!
