A barn wood corner fence:
So here is a cute idea to make if you have some old barn lumber, or any old lumber for that matter, laying around.
We live out in the country and driveway vears off from a secondary street to a patchy half gravel and half concrete strip. And down at the end of that there was really no eye catching anything to get attention, just big old space.
So I had the idea to take some of our old barn lumber and sketch out a make do corner fence at each side of the drive.
And thankfully my husband figured out what I'd drew, made them and put them up.

Here it was the first year after planting some pretties.
They were barely growing in, but you can see some coming up.

Here it is the 2nd year:
And here it was last year.
The hanging basket lent color until the big perennials grew in.

They were simple pink morning glories that took off beautifully and kept going way into fall.
See, I get to walk through these everyday down on my way to check the mailbox.
|I had to wait a bit on the right side one to be finished because we were short a wide enough board for the last corner. But we finally found one!|
One thing is for sure, it gives you a cute focal point in places that are bare.
And they are very easy to decorate in all occasions.
Summer time is my favorite though.
Just let all the flowers kinda take over like this:
