I'm doing a screen porch makeover at the moment and wanted to add a bit of light over the drop-leaf table. Using some grapevine balls and white lights with brown wires I put together an little porch chandy in no time!
Bring some BLING to your garden or outdoor living area with this easy project...
Wire garden fencing is bent into circles, the ends bent into hooks, and hung with resin &
glass crystals from old light fixtures... and the result is a lotta' sparkle in your yard! Use one circle, or multiples in concentric sizes for a tiered effect. You can also add test tubes or floral tubes, to hold flower stems and tall taper candles.
We had no privacy in our back yard. I got this idea from an earlier post with shutters. We had used doors around the house, I painted them, we hinged them together and attached them to fence post steaks. It's not quite done yet, adding another door and then some mulch around it.
When the concrete bird bath began to leak instead of holding water, I hated the fact I was going to have to get rid of it. My inner self kept telling me I could use it for another
purpose, that's exactly what I did. I knew I didn't want the concrete color against the black arbor and fencing, Estate Black spray paint to rescue. I filled it with dirt, added a few flowers, some Creeping Jenny to fill over the edges. Once it fills in, it will be a thing of beauty in the small court yard area.
