When we replaced our white wooden fence with vinyl
I thought, what will I do with all these pickets.
Since I like to re-use things and turn them into something else,
these are a few of the things I have come up with. So far...
The fence looks pretty rough. I've repainted it for years
but I was really getting tired of that. So last year we finally replaced it.
After taking it apart my first idea was fish.
After scraping and sanding and doing a little sawing
these are what I came up with.
After painting, here are some of the fish.
I've made schools of them.
My next idea was a flag.
Here is Old Glory.
Here's a Christian Flag.
One of my favorite flowers is the poppy.
After trimming the pickets to a certain size
I formed a canvas out of wood.
Another strange flower on a wood canvas.
I had odds and ends of cut off pieces.
So wood art is what I came up with
Most of these have a bell or snowflake attached to it.
There's also some rooster art.
This is a small wood canvas about 10x12.
I stenciled on this one.
I had so many fish, another idea I came up with was to add pegs to them.
To hang aprons, a coat, dog leashes, or whatever.
These go up and down.
These go across.
They're more of a coat rack.
Or whatever you want!
Since I had some cut off pieces of the top of the pickets
I thought they'd make a great Grinch.
One of my favorite things is my Chicken Art for the Hen House.
That's Bouffant and Slippers at the coop door.
They're so little there.
And last but not least is my picket Snowman.
He can hang on the wall, a door or any narrow space.
And that's it so far.
I'll be coming up with more ideas in the future.
Hope you enjoyed these.
We live by faith, not by sight.
