Picket Fences are so charming to me. I have always loved them. Even a run down house has a bit of charm if it has a picket fence. Before we found this house and I was looking online at houses..I saw the cute picket fence this house has and thought, "We need to go look at that one!". I have always been drawn to white picket fences.
I had some picket fence boards from our other house and decided to make a little project to bring some "outside in". I had my husband put the boards together in what I thought was a pleasing design.
Then thinking I would try something different I stained the fence boards before painting them white. My thought here was I could sand down the boards and have the stain show through.
Well, the idea was good. After sanding and sanding I went back to my tried and true favorite way to distress and used the finger method with Rub and Buff as shown here in another post. I guess you can't teach an old dog new tricks. My sweet son Wyatt said this morning he doesn't know why I even tried doing it a new way because my way makes so much more sense. Love that kid!
I think it looks great! I am thinking I could wire some small bottles on it and hang flowers--or hang a small banner. I am thinking it has potential!
I need to own stock in Rub N Buff or something--I love the stuff.
Still in love with my sweet little white lilacs---
Just can't get enough of them!
Chantel and I are off to Thrift City to find some treasures!
Thanks for visiting!
