I LOVE MY PICKET FENCE WITH BIRD FINIALS
Years ago when Tony built my picket fence he cut out the design on every single one of the picket boards. When I found these beautiful iron birds, I asked him to cut off some of the finial tops and attach these birds to my fence. I just HAD to have them on my fence.
I wanted them to be randomly placed, so I chose and asked him to attach the birds on six of those fence posts. I turned them different directions so they would look more interesting and I
painted them my fence color, a grayish off white. Then, I painted a rust colored paint here and there to make them look like they were old and rusted.
One time in Victoria magazine I saw an old rake being used as a holder of garden tools. Not long after that I found two rusty old rake heads at a garage sale.
I knew exactly what I would do with them.
I LOVE MY PICKET FENCE!!
