A while back, Christy at Confessions of a Serial DIYer had the opportunity to collect some discarded fencing–for free! “It had been cut into the perfect 4 X 4 stack,” she notes. She’s been able to get a lot of mileage from that pile of boards. Want to see some of her projects?
Christy painted most of the boards a creamy white and distressed them to show off the weathered wood underneath. She cut the boards into different shapes and sizes to create the right pieces for her projects. Many of the boards became decorative signs. Some of them turned into a faux-vintage toolbox. Other boards became part of a pretty serving tray. Some of the things Christy made from the free wood she was even able to sell at a craft market. Way to make use of your rescue, Christy!
