garden fence plate pocket…

hi everyone, today, I wanted to share a couple of  projects from my dining room.  I found a large roll of white fencing at an antique store for $5.  some of it was used on my daybed awning, and more of it on this plate holder over my french doors.

005

all you need to do, is fold the fencing in half.  this was done by placing a 2x4 board in the center of the fencing and folding it up.

002

once the fold is done, use the prongs in the back to hold the two edges of the fencing together,-- by bending them around the front portion of the fence.
the pictures explain this process better.  the whole fence was attached to the wall with hooks and zip ties, to be sure it stays in place.

and my inspiration is from this creative lady:)

and you can see a snippet of this chandelier in the first picture of this post.   it was a mother’s day gift this year, and it’s now over my dining table.—here’s the before and afters.
