Fence Art Using a Repurposed Table

We have a bank slate in our yard that has not been touched by any color other than green and wood grains. As I was feeling inspired today I found this old table in my shed that I looked at for a few minutes trying to figure out what I could do with it and I instantly saw 2 curvy vases from the legs. I took it apart, painted them a bright red, nailed them to my blank slate and free handed 2 large, bright, and cheerful sunflowers.art
Before-a blank slate
The table bottom I had laying around.
Took the legs off and painted them apple red.
Nailed the table leg to the fence as a vase and then painted a big bright sunflower on the fence using acrylics and craft paint.
After-it adds a pop of color and flows nicely with the rest of our yard art throughout the backyard.
I'm in love with the way it turned out and so happy I was able to repurpose this table bottom I was about to toss in the garbage.
