Summer is here and it’s the perfect time to complete your fence maintenance checklist and have some fun with your wooden fence. If you are looking for a fun way to set your fence apart from others on the block this season, here are some of our favorite ideas for summer fence decorating.
Light It Up
Lights are a great way to transform your backyard from a daytime hangout spot to a romantic nighttime hideaway. Use drapes of soft sparkling lights to decorate your wood fence. If you want a minor accent, use small strings of fairy lights to space along the length. For a dramatic effect, make an entire wall of light to light up your backyard without any extra help.
Add Storage Space
If you need space to store your favorite outdoor activities or plants, add some wood or plastic crates to part of your wooden fence. You can fasten the crates to open outside as display cases or open at the top for more secure storage. For a very fun creative twist, paint and decorate the crates before you mount them. This is also a fun way to get the rest of the family involved in the process.
Let Your Creativity Show
If you are very creative and looking for a wood fence that is totally one of a kind, consider decorating with any of the following:
- Paint each slat of your wood fence as the spine of one of your favorite books
- Paint a big bulls-eye on the fence to use as a target for water balloons or any other games
- Put planters along the length of the fence to display your green thumb
- Paint a mural along the length of your fence interior
