I have a little picket fence on my porch that I usually hang signs or various things on throughout the year. It was feeling a little plain and I was debating on if I should put it away for the summer. I came across these fish nets at the dollar store and began thinking how cute they would be draped over that little picket fence. Then my creative juices started flowing. I thought I could come up with some kind of beach sign and hang a bundle of fish over the fence.
I went through my wood scrap pile and found all of these pieces of redwood fencing, the pieces aren’t very big they measure between 5 and 6 inches long and about 5 inches wide. I free-handed 2 fish on each board, then using my Skill saw cut around the fish shape. This took all of 10 minutes to draw and cut 6 fish out. It really is easy to use the Skill saw and the fish don’t need to have perfect or straight lines.
Next I painted all the fish a teal color and let them dry, after they were day I painted over the teal color with white, light blue and coral colors. I let the 2nd coat of paint dry and then sanded off the edges to reveal the teal color and some of the wood. Last I used the drill to make a hole where the eye of the fish would be and then strung some jute through the hole and tied the jute together to make a bundle of fish!
This was such a simple project to help update my porch area for summer. What projects are you working on this summer?
