The Fence (recycling Old Doors and Windows)

I would like to share the fence I made out of old doors and windows. I was unable to find a fence that I really loved plus I didn’t want it to cost me an arm & a leg. I’m not a spring chicken, so I need all my arms and legs!
The fence is located at the rear/side of my house. It seemed to take me forever but knowing I only had to do 6 (8 ft) sections, I knew I could totally finish this project. It wasn’t a project that I could put away in a closet and get it out later. Plus, being out for people to see, I realized that it had to be finished in a timely fashion.
It was like putting a puzzle together. Very little modification had to be done but there was some. I was extremely lucky at finding old doors. The first door was an original door in my house (sitting in the garage,when we moved in). My neighbor gave me a couple closet doors that he replaced in his house. Garage sales, dumpster diving, the side of the curb and a couple doors were knocked on when I saw a house being updated.
Once I had it totally built I realized it needed jazzed up. The first door had to be purple (K-State, of course). But why did I pick the other colors? Not one ended up the original shade. So that means, the other side may not match! When it needs a little tlc, I’ll have to start from scratch and make up another shade.
Enjoy! Gail

    I love this too! I've collected 8 doors and am soon ready to get going on mine. How did you anchor them?

    I think instead of a Fence, I would have my husband build me a shed or a green house, with one door opening and closing. It could be fun, with window boxes. ;) I don't think they would allow your idea in our development.

Inspired? Will you try this project? Let the author know!
