Fence Love

Another wonderful weekend has come and gone, I hope that you all had a great weekend as well. 

 I was busy this weekend finishing up my fence project and I am officially in love. I know I know another sign but these will be the last ones for awhile.  






Last summer I took my family on a trip all the way across Canada to Moncton, NB where my dad is from.  My Grandfather has the last standing farm right in the middle of town.  He has this cool old barn filled with years of treasures and memories.  One of them happened to be this sign which I fell in love with while we were there.  So I decided to make a copy of it for my backyard fence project. 



The Original 


My Reproduction


My Antiques Sign


I picked up this cute birdhouse at the dollar store and added some paint to it to add a little bit of fun. 


I am so happy with my finished product.  With extra wood and paint I already had I just had to buy a few 1x4's so this whole fence project cost me under $20.00.  I love how the backyard fells more like a home and not just a backyard.  Truly makes a difference.
