A faux fence with plantings around it
I have one like this in my garden. I planted a climbing rose on it and it looks just beautiful. Any kind of climbing plant would be beautiful.
I might turn it upside down, add a foot or so of post so that you can bury the ends into large pots, and add finials to the tops (which are actually the bottoms in this picture.) Plant a grouping of plants, one trailing, one mid height and one climbing, in each of the pots. You will have a portable "screen", maybe you could even stencil "welcome" or something else across the flat board.
I am thinking Halloween already. Paint it black and stick Jack O'Lanterns on top of each spindle..Place it in the yard come halloween. On a wall inside the dining room as wall decor. I think I will go look for one now..
I would transform it into a rustic bench with the seat having holes that I could set flower pots into and on the sides I would plant clematis going up the larger spindles.
Thank you all for great ideas.I had forgotten, that I have the top piece that finishes the top.I guess I will learn how to fill in with wood filler and replace spindles, sand and figure out how to make a bench!!
And make sure you use a good water-proof paint.
Thanks for the reminder!!
Does anyone happen to have a good tutorial or pattern I could use as a helpful tool, when I start on my bench project?
I agree with Sue... I have morning Glories that would wrap themselves around the posts
I would put it in a flower bed!
Add bird houses to the tops of the posts and still it in a quiet spot
@Judith F Have you done a check here on hometalk for a tutorial? There have been tons of these made into benches and look great!
Thank you see, I checked some out and not sure if can be the carpenter.lol!
@Judith F Sure you can! ;) They really only take some basic skills and some of the Tutorials are fantastic! Can't wait to see what you do with this! I'm sure whatever it becomes will look great! xo
you got two beautiful candle pillars there i would saw the far ends off and make candle pillars from them
Secure it to the ground. Put a vining plant on at the base of the pillars and let them take over. Just add another board across the top and screw all the other post to it to keep the vines from displacing them.
