I made this a few years ago and like it so much that I have moved it across town to a new house! It is made out of an old fence that fell down and I just used craft paint to write on it. Jack Kerouac is my husband's favourite writer and the haikus fit on it well. I actually had my high school students write their own haikus and we wrote them with Sharpies on a really big privacy fence that someone was throwing out. You can grow vines up the boards-I use Morning Glories and sweet peas. I didn't polyurethane it because I kinda like the whole decay and wear look on old wood I just tie it to the tree loosely with cord and put some big rocks against the bottom to hold it up You could set it more permanently..

My poor fence got knocked down in a recent windstorm, so I am piecing it back together. Stay tuned for reconstructed fence photos Grin Grin
