I had "inherited" this worn lattice fence when my tenant moved out. It was in bad shape and full of wasp nests but I didn't want to throw it out without giving it a shot at a makeover.
Time: 2 HoursCost: $4Difficulty: Easy
Because it was really badly damaged in some spots I decided to paint it and make it a nice pretty white color. I used milk paint for this project. But it was the SafePaint version which does not chip. You can learn a lot more about this wonderful product here.
Much better don't you think? I wanted to attach this to my balcony railing to act as a privacy barrier. So I used a bit of wire.
Of course, I knew it would need something more. A bit of color never hurt anyone and my balcony which was pretty stark could benefit from some color.
And to add even more color I cut up some dollar store flowers and attached them to the lattice fence. I wish I could grow my own flowers but alas, I have a notorious brown thumb.
