Beautifying The Wooden Fence Project

Like I said a few posts ago when I shared my garden art,
I want more color in the back garden this year.
With that in mind, I decided to add some color to our faded wooden back fence.

I started with two stars I've had forever but no longer use.
They had Christmas scenes on them so I got some blue spray paint and covered that up.
A friend of Mr. B's does catering and she had given me a trash bag full of
large number 10 cans. I removed the labels of three of them
and spay painted them white.

I had 2 same-sized metal planters and they got a coat of pink spray paint.

I planted pink petunias in the two of the white cans and purple petunias in the third. The pink containers got white  petunias and purple petunias.

Using screws, I attached them all on the wooden fence.

Evenly spaced?  Close enough. Same height? Probably not but, I totally love the look of it!

Our wooden fence is now darn close to being as pretty as the rest of the garden
and all I had to buy were a couple of cans of spray paint!

  7. Kathe that is so darn cute! Love that you went with red, white and blue! Looks great on your fence and how clever to reuse those stars! It has been pouring rain here today so I've done nothing but hang out on the computer, nap and read. Perfect Sunday!

  29. I love spray paint. I'm thinking to replace and add more bird houses to my fence. Those colors would look fabulous on my bird houses.

    ReplyDelete
  30. You know what, I'm so insprired, I just put on my shoes and a little make up so I can head over to the craft store and pick up some inexpensive bird houses. :)for what it's worth

  31. You have just inspired me. I have this fence that is plain and dull. I am sure the neighbors hate looking at it as well. I can't wait to make a few trips to some yard sales, or thrift store to find some fun things to put on my fence. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. This is a great idea. Will have to get some spray paint now, I have a couple gallon cans that I can use. Thanks for the idea.

  38. Wow, those colored cans really make the fence look great! What a great way to recycle those old coffee cans (are number 10 cans about the same size, they look to be). I better start saving mine, I have a little area of fence on the front of our house that could totally use this. Thanks for sharing. :)

  39. Good stuff! I love that it's repurposed, and has your quirky feel to it. Makes me wish we had a wooden fence (we just have plastic ones, unfortunately).

  54. Cute! Aren't you the smart one painting the old stars! I'd probably have donated mine and then saw new ones painted and bought them! Duh... My fence is plastic but if I could find something to hang down that might work! I can hear my husband sign and see his eyes rolling now!! LOL

  55. I really wish I could get that kind of wood fence in Naples FL, but it takes a while to get that weathered look.
