Hideous Air Conditioner…. Can see into the neighbors balcony, and the shrubs are way too overgrown.

I used these Items to attach the Bamboo fencing.

Hammer,

24 guage galvanized wire,

1″ nails

Pliers with a wire cutter

The fencing is pretty weak, and our winds are VERY strong. So I devised a great way to keep the fence upright. I take two nails, nail them about a inch to half-inch away from each other. I take the wire about 5 inches of it, and i do a twisty 8 around both of the nails. and then I individually wrap them around their own nail to keep them more sturdy.

I found this awesome piece of burlap and I thought it would be awesome to paint it and put it up in my patio.

I put the burlap on a nice area with two poster boards underneath. The paint goes directly to the paper underneath.

And here is the finished piece! I am not done with the whole patio, but I covered up the ugly part and the fence 🙂 more to come. stay updated!
