This is not for faint of heart, so put those big girl/boy pants on, because today we are remodeling old fence posts.We are Read more
Before the makeover, my fences were plain and there was nothing really to “oooohhhh or ahhhhhh” at, So I wanted to spruce it up in an unconventional way. I did that by buying some glass marbles (different sizes and colors) all you need to do is make sure that light canget through, (some marbles are too opaque for this project).
Anyway, all I really did was drill some holes (randomly) into the fence panels. Don’t worry if they need to be bigger, just widen as necessary using a drill bit. Next, I put some CA glue only on the part of the marble that would not be seen (so you basically should leave both faces of the marble glue-free, that’s where the light will travel in).Next I gently tapped the marbles into the fence holes with a wooden mallet.PLEASE DO NOT use a hammer for the love of all that is holy, you will break the marble! At first one-panel couldtake, you about15-20 minutes, but thattime should lessen once you get a rhythm going.
Ok so after the hard part. You should start to notice thesun hit the fence. I know mine came out so amazing! There were gem-like beams of light everywhere in my yard and in the front of my house.The look was almost out of a fairytale story, it looked kinda like a Disney home!Not to mention it still looks so beautiful even without the sunlight, so i’m gladto know that if there’s no light it won’tbe a dud. This type of fence would be an amazing addition to holiday decorating. Though,to be honest, it would actually fit into ANY event. It’s just timeless in my opinion and worthy of being added to anyone’s home design ideas. I hope you enjoyed the DIY and that you can use this to make your own inspired fence!
