    Hanging pots, bird houses, solar lights, all would look nice. Very cute area, by the way:)

    There are some beautiful metal (outdoor) wall decor items available in places like Tuesday morning and Home Goods. Put them on the fence for instant style!

    Hello! Your backyard getaway is lovely! You can add whatever makes you happy. My daughter has some really cute things on her fence. Her husband is a big Cowboys fan and she has a birdhouse on her fence and it has a little sign next to it that says Cowboy fans live here. 😄 She also has some hanging plants and other knickknacks.

    Apply a rich Thompsons semi-transparent wood stain. Adds depth to the grain and keeps wood looking nice.

    I suggest putting a potting bench in the back left bumped out area. Also, adding pots for height would look nice. Place a large pot on top of another that is turned upside down, then fill in around it with a variety of pots in different heights to add interest. Architectural salvage, especially metal pieces, would break up the expanse of fencing. It is a beautiful little sanctuary you have created - enjoy!

    Staining the fence would be nice. There are also stains with color. You have a peaceful little garden paradise! Enjoy!

    Brackets with hanging plants would look great, as would some lanterns hanging from your fence.
