A Privacy Wall Doesn’t have to be Boring!
When I moved to New Mexico, there was an acre of vacant land next to me. But when it was sold and a family built their home just 10 feet from my fence, my privacy was a thing of the past.
I put up a lattice wall thinking it would solve the problem of neighbors staring in to my once private back yard, but it wasn’t enough to cut off their view.
I purchased 12″ x 8′ boards from Home Depot and stained them with exterior stain to protect them from the elements.
I wanted a “natural” design so I chose the leafy branch portion of our
Raised Plaster Aspen Tree Stencil
. It was perfect to create pretty branches on my new wall.
I first used metallic silver paint to randomly stencil branches.
I then added more branches, (some overlapping the silver branches) with gold metallic paint.
Once they were attached to the fence not only did they afford more privacy, but created an out door art wall that I could add ornamental items to.
