Make your own decorative garden fence

garden fence

This verdigris fence in my garden was a twin size day bed a few months ago.

As we were taking apart this extra bed I started thinking it might be really cute in my garden. My husband drilled new holes so we could put it together with the ends attached to the middle the long way instead of crossway. Then we popped off the protective tips on each post so they were hollow and we could push them into the ground.

Viola!! We created our own garden fence out of a bed we no longer needed!  You can do it yourself with a metal daybed or a crib; look for them at garage sales, the hunt is half the fun!
