Here are some tips to give your fence a burst of beauty for the New Year:
A Coat of Fresh Paint
Breathe a new life into your old fence by giving it a coat of fresh paint. Paint it white for an elegant look. Before painting your fence, make sure to check whether the old paint is peeling off, you may need to sand the surface before you apply a fresh coat.
Hang potted plants from your fence to add life and beauty to your yard. Create a colorful vertical garden by placing the planters uniformly and using a variety of plants and flowers in different styles and colors. Hanging flower baskets can also spruce up your fence.
Ornamental trellises are great to give your fence an elegant and Gothic look. A light painted fence will allow the patterns of trellis to stand out. You can add some colorful climbing plants to maximize the appearance of your fence.
Recycle scraps of metal, wood and other objects to create unique works of art. Use bright colored recycled arts to decorate a fence that is both beautiful and functional. Make fun planters from old bottles, rain boots, and wooden crates to add a unique touch to your fence.
A Colorful Garden
If you have a wrought iron fence, attach a shallow tray to your fence and plant a whimsical garden in that tray. Paint old gutters and secure them to the fence to create an amazing garden and plant succulents and ivy to give your fence a natural look.
It’s time to get started and give your fence a new look!
