    That is pretty intriguing - with a little scraping and paint this fence will be amazing! Wonder how they found so many doors - they are hard to come by in my area!

      If you have a Habitat for Humanity "ReStore" in your area you can probably find them there. There are A LOT of old doors at my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore at bargain prices. I'm not a fan of this fence though, I really hope they paint it all the same color and a neutral color. I think they should paint over the glass too.

    Makes the property look even more derelict maybe if the doors were all white washed it would look a little better but I'm pretty sure my neighbors would form some committee to get me to take it down if it were in front of my house

      I agree. I would paint it all brown including painting over the glass but even then it's still something I wouldn't be crazy about. It would probably never be allowed in a neighborhood with an HOA. I truly hope they paint it all the same color, brown or white.
