This is my new fence


I spent about 6 months collecting old doors from friends and salvage yards and then mounted them on privacy fence frame. I also clear coated them so that they wouldn't weather wear. I love that each door has it's own story and looking at it reminds me of all of my different friends who contributed.

    This is a great fence and I absolutly love it! My neighbors would probably hate it (which is why I need a fence anyway)😂. What did you attach the fence to, and how did you anchor it in the ground? I couldn't tell from the picture. Thanks!

      No. It says a privacy fence FRAME. If you look at the last door on the left, you can see the top and bottom of a post. If you look at the 3rd door and the 5th door from the left, you can see a top and a bottom "rail". They are fastened, likely with deck screws, to those rails.

    Great idea ...would look really polished if all the same color.

    I'm going to go with painting them all the same color as well. You must not have an HOA ;)
