Ahhh yes, the old fence again. I know what you're thinking,
"Isn't that dang thing gone yet?"
No, Ms. Smartie Pants and even after this project I still have a bunch left. My recommendation to you is that if you see someone throwing away a beat up and weathered old fence,
TAKE IT AND RUN!
I took as much fence (last summer) as I could fit in the back of my Subaru Outback and I have used it for all of these projects:
I decided to make another frame for this fabulous canvas print my good friend Nichole
(of Nichole Tipton Photography) took of our family last Christmas.
The print is 11-14, but it looks all small since it isn't framed. So, I decided to make it look bigger and add a bit of color.
First I measured (yes, I actually measured) and painted a blue square.
Then, I cut up the pieces of fence and screwed them into the wall.
I took some basic stencils and sprayed them with my new best friend, metallic spray paint.
I wrapped push pins with thin jute and threw it all together!
Kinda fun and different and rustic.
