This project was totally unexpected!
Not only unexpected, it was free!
It was all set to go out to to the trash, before I put a halt to that.
A dear friend of mine was kicking it to the curb.
I of course said, can I have it?
There has to be something I can do with it.
I put my husband to work every chance I get!
I really like to see his muscles is the truth of the matter.
He bought one post and some cement to actually have this secure in the ground.
Otherwise it would topple over…common sense there!
The fence was sort of old and weathered looking.
Mike is the one who came up with the idea of putting it tucked away in our woods where we had lost some trees last year.
It was a great filler. He even came up with the stenciling idea.
I tell you, the guy needs to take over my blog.
He is full of ideas sometimes!
Jack picked the color stain. I went with it, and thought OK, he has a good eye too!
I of course had to throw in some whimsy.
It really turned out cute and adds a conversation piece out here for sure…well another one, because you know us, we have a few things to talk about.
This is what it looks like from the street. Again, the neighbors go by shaking their heads every time.
Although, I will say the other day one of the neighbors said to Mike….
“we all thought you were crazy when you planted thousands of zoysia plugs in your lawn, but look at it now”.
Just sayin, we do have the nicest grass in the hood!
My garden pallet from Last fall, is seriously out of control now.
I do nothing in terms of fertilizing. I just water, when I remember to.
Everything is so green an plush!
I can’t wait for our cypress trees to grow some, and gives us a little more privacy when out in the back.
Good thing is, is we only have one neighbor is site and we only see the side of his home…and he never comes out!
That’s it for today! I would say this was a new thrifty treasure!
