How can I make my pool slide pretty?



I'm looking for a clever DIY way to work an ugly aluminum pool slide into my landscape

    Hi Tami: My first thought was hanging flower baskets on it. But there has to be other, clever, things you could do!

    I was thinking if you could remove the ladder, it would be an awesome fountain, maybe moving water down a mound or earth/flowers/rock, etc, trickling down into a pond at the bottom.. Or even cement around it in an artistic way. You might have to do something "obvious" with it since it will be nearly impossible to disguise.

    I'm not seeing a picture, so I have no idea if this would work - how about making it look like an indoor staircase that you build shelves under? You could store pool toys/equipment. Rustoleum makes great paints for metal/plastic. Color it in aquas/blues/greens with fish/mermaids on the slide surface?

    Perhaps you could paint the frame either a bold color to add interest or else one of those nice metalic dark shades, either way use good quality metal paint and tape,off aluminum slide itself. If you choose the,bold color add it somewhere else in the.play.space for continuity.
