Shade garden fence


This is a fence that we made out of very old windows and stair balusters, both left over from jobs my hubby did. The windows are so old that they have hand-rolled glass! There are two sections with my tea pot fountain set between the two fence sections. I love them because they are open and don't obstruct my view and they keep the dog from tearing through my shade garden!

    The paint color is fabulous. Will you share your secret to painting the containers. Did you do anything extra besides painting them? Paint color and brand--please!

    So by adding glass windows, it cuts back on the sun? I would think it intensifies it. Why then the purpose of the glass? Thanks!

      I think she meant that its a fence "for" her shade garden ... I'm going to try it as a fence to actually shade my garden (I get too much sun living in arizona) ... I think that using a light coat of spray paint might do the trick, or perhaps two coats of shellac or varnish.
