Barn Quilt

I had this blank wall on the out side of my house, I hated it. I planted Ivey, a tree noting looked right. I decided to make a small Barn Quilt got ideas from Pinterest.
I had fun deciding, drew it out first before painting. It took about a week to complete. I allowed each coat of paint to dry overnight or several hours. Before moving on.

This is my blank wall. With the shadow of a limb from the pecan tree that is just out of sight.
We like in the country, and snakes are not my friend, I like to have the front cut close so I can see them when they visit.

My husband cut and framed the back of exterior grade plywood using wood screws.

I sanded the edges and the face side.
After I finished I realized I could have, should have, filled in the gaps on the edge with woodpuddy. But you learn from your mistakes.

Painted both front and back to make it more weather proof.
Three coats each side and edge.

We live in a herricaine zone so we hund it with C clamps so it can be taken down an move in.

Thanks for all the Imput. This is it almost centered. To answer a few question,
I live on the Gulf coast, husband is retired Military , who flies his own airplane. We live in a flyin community. Hence the color and design choice.
Hung from top not into bricks, husband refuses to drill into the bricks.
PS...We had to add a rubber tubbing to the back, after a bad winter storm, to protect both the wall and the quilt.

    I love that it's movable (not painted directly on the bricks.) If you wanted a change, or sell the house & want to take the painting with you, or the new owners don't want that, it could be moved.
