Backyard bling

Just getting around to this now. I made my bling a couple of months ago. Been busy out of the shop since then.

First up is some stars made from fence pickets I recycled. Creation here: https://woodworkingweb.com/creations/1894-fence-picket-stars

Next is some planter boxes from the same recycled fence pickets: https://woodworkingweb.com/creations/1960-fence-picket-planter-boxes

Lastly, the new fence that caused me to accumulate all these pickets. I took this picture a few days ago when the weather was great.

The fence was sealed with a linseed oil based sealant that my wife and I tinted with various latex paints, then painted individual slats over the course of a few weeknights. It’s different, that’s for sure. I like it. I’m really hoping it remains cheerful during the winter.

Thanks, all. You can barely see the star now because the tomatoes grew up in front of it. Totally different from the picture above when they were just baby plants. :-)
