Making a Wooden Fence Pretty(ier)


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.

I removed the labels of three #10 cans and spay painted them white.

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.

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!

    It looks lovely. Have you seen the posts showing decorated hub caps? Possibly an extra idea for you?
