How To Paint A Colorful Abstract Wall Mural

Last week we showed you how most of our daughter’s room has come together so far, and today we’ve got all the details about one wall that you didn’t see.

Building A Horizontal Fence

In this video I’m getting started building a Board on Board Horizontal Fence, here in my new commercial space, The Wood Shed. I actually broke this video into two parts because there is so much information to deliver. So if a fence is on your to-do list, I hope this helps you out.

Be sure and check out the video above to see all about how I built it.

You can also check out the previous fence I built, my Vertical Board on Board Fence Build, here: https://youtu.be/v3BIyCFtYPM

Things I Used in This Project:

Stay tuned for Part 2, where I will cover picketing, trim, top cap and finishing out the ground area. I hope you learn something from this video and feel inspired to go and build your own fence.

See you on the next one.
