For those of you who do not know, I was given this fence. All I had to do was remove it.
The first thing I made from the fence was this rustic Americana flag for our Independence Day.
I showed you this rustic shelf I made out of some of the fence pieces. When I cut the pieces to size, I ended up with some “same size” old scraps.
To clamp my boards I laid them on the luan and laid scrap pieces over top of them. I clamped the scrap boards to my work table. I sure would love it if Irwin would let me review or giveaway some clamps! *wink*
I sort of thought I might put “home sweet home” on it. (using my new silhouette that I just KNEW I was going to win last week.) I didn’t win, but I still would like to put something on it. I used the top part of one of the fence pieces to make this little “house”.
I’m sure I will be keeping this piece. (IF it turns out, if not, then it goes in the garbage) I wish I could paint artistically! I’ve always wanted to be able to paint. I once tried doing the Donna Dewberry, and I couldn’t even get that right!
I am open to suggestions! Do you like the “home sweet home” idea? Do you have a better idea? Do you have a great way for me to paint it on there so that it looks good? Do you like the house? What can I do with the little sign? Maybe my house numbers?
Thanks for you input and ideas!
