I am SUPER excited to show you my last project from the Outdoor Spaces Event!!! I think it is my favorite :) I used old doors that came from my 1938 home to build a screen.
I painted them the same colors as the flower pots and chairs. (Krylon's Blue Ocean Breeze, Almond, Pichatio, and white) I have not sealed these yet but I will use Minwax's Helmsman.
I have this screen set up on my grass because we don't have our patio/pergola built off the back of our house yet. I recommend that if you have painted items outside to first seal them, and then consider the placement of them carefully. You want them to last as long as possible. Keep things out of the direct spray of sprinklers. Under some sort of cover would be ideal. I also store all outdoor decor in my garage during the winter.
Also, when I put it in it final spot, I am going to find a way to anchor it to the back of my house. It is very sturdy, but I do have kids and you never know. I figure it is better to be safe than sorry.
I am so excited to see what outdoor ideas you guys link up tomorrow! I am hanging out at Studio 5 today so I will post a clip later of my segment. Guess what I am talking about....
