Some more fence Decor

Okay so have I told you that I am in love with 1x4's.  They have endless possibilities, they are inexpensive and so easy to work with.  I have been back and forward to Rona numerous times getting 2 or 3 at a time.  They yard guys are starting to look at me funny, lol.  

I have been building this fantastic wall on the back of my fence, my plan is to fill two panels with some kind of  art.  It really has started to make the space feel like a cozy backyard and a whole lot more personal.  This week I made these boxes by simply cutting some 1x4's to my desired length and then tacking them together with a nail gun.  Give them a quick paint job and finished.  The painting actually took longer than building them.

 I had these terracotta pots stashed under my deck for the past year, they were originally painted blue and white, so I added a splash of green color to the top and once dry I sanded them a bit to give them a worn look. 

This weekend we are packing up the trailer and heading out for my annual family camping trip, we are looking forward to a weekend away.   I love long weekends. 

Hope you all have a great weekend!!!
