It only takes a few minutes on the internet to find out that a plain, wooden fence simply isn’t enough sometimes. Those who have a bit of creativity and an artistic flair are doing all sorts of interesting things to make an ordinary fence far from ordinary. Here are a few ideas for adding charm to wood fences:
- Paint – Whether you go for some bright, unique solid color or a mural that is anything from realistic to pop art, painting wood fences is one of the best ways to create something that shares your personality and passion. The painting can be done by anyone from your kids to a professional mural artist.
- Add Materials – Nothing says a wood fence has to be all wood. You can embellish fences with whatever odd materials you may have laying around or can pick up along the way. Think of adding old wood windows, old shutters, or even something more personally intriguing like surf boards. In addition, you can also take a regularly constructed wood fence and add things to it, such as a collection of old tools, vertical garden boxes, tin cans for flowers, and yard decorations. If you have children, a bit of blackboard paint makes an instant play area.
- Temporary Additions – If you are planning a gathering, you have the perfect background for displaying banners, decorations, and other theme items to make things festive. For example, imagine putting up old Halloween costumes along the fence or hanging holiday lights.
