      Garden art on the cheap DIY: Glass marbles in your fence! | "Drill holes ever so slightly smaller than your marbles, so they will fit snugly and no adhesive needed. Sunlit, its sparkles! ... so be sure to pick your area on the fence where the sun goes behind it for the most sparkle...i.e., on the west side if possible, where the afternoon sun will shine on the backside." | Garden Ideas | By Garden Drama

    No-dig DIY replacement for chain link fence: cover the posts with a wooden sleeve and nail slats to the covers. What i would like to do sounds cheaper to do this than build new fence. I am soooo happy I came across this, our fence is such an eye sore. This would be perfect!!!!!!!!!

    Oh my goodness, this is adorable! Drill little marble sized holes in the fence, put a little glue on each marble, and shimmy into the hole. This photo is what it looks like on her fence when the sun hits it - so, so pretty!

    Small Cedar Fence Picket Storage Shed- We could build this to match the house and make it big enough for the lawn / garden stuff. Much cheaper and nicer than a storage building.

    Bought an old light fixture for $5.00..painted it black…replaced the bulbs with solar lights…and then I was going to hang it from a shepherds hook..but then I noticed it would slide right into a piece of conduit…so I painted that black also. Inserted that into the ground. Instant light with no wiring!
