privacy fences to block out your neighbor

Having neighbors can be a blessing, but it can also be very difficult. Having good neighbors that you can trust, that you like spending time with, and that aren't much of a problem can make living in your home much more enjoyable. Unfortunately, not every neighbor is a good neighbor. If you have an irritating neighbor that you don't exactly trust or want to spend time with, it may be time for you to invest in a nice privacy fence to divide the properties. My blog will show you the options of privacy fences that you have to consider to block out your not-so-enjoyable neighbor.

Stain A Unique Design On Your Wood Fence With Ease

If you are tired of looking at your old fence and want to give it a facelift, consider staining it with a design. Staining a fence is not difficult to do and creating a unique design with stain will give your tired old fence even more character. The following guide walks you through the simple steps to creating an amazing design on your fence when staining it.

Stain Your Fence

The first thing you need to do is stain your fence with a light stain. Use a paintbrush to apply the stain directly to the fence in light, even coats. You want to protect any parts of the wood that may be chipped or cracked from the elements and the stain will do that.

Choose Your Design

Next, you need to choose the design that you want to create on the fence. You can choose to freehand the design or use a stencil to ensure the design has a uniform look to it. When choosing the design, be sure that it will be large enough to easily be seen on the fence. Allow the stain to dry overnight before you continue.

Create Your Design

Use wood glue to create the design directly onto the fence.  Use painter's tape to tape the stencil to the fence, if you want to stencil the design. Use a small paintbrush to add the wood glue to the fence inside of the stencil. Carefully pull the stencil free from the fence and then wipe it off with a wet rag to remove any glue from it. Reposition it, tape it down, and repeat the process until the design is created on the entire fence. Allow the glue to dry fully.

Stain the Fence Again

Choose a darker color of stain for the fence and carefully apply it the same way you did the first stain. Be sure to apply a few coats of the stain so that it gets into every nook and cranny of the wood. Allow it to dry for a day or two to make sure it is fully dry.

Once the stain is dry, use a razor blade to carefully pop the wood glue from the fence by placing the edge of the blade under the edge of the glue where it is stuck to the fence. When you finish, you should have a fence with a very unique, eye-catching design on it.
