A friend bought a fixer upper house that had a neighbor on one side who wasn’t interested in keeping his property in good repair.
As a result, the fence between the two houses looked like this, with the wooden fence belonging to the neighbor.
It was a real eyesore.
The solution we came up with to lessen how awful the fence looked, was to cover the fence on my friend’s side with boards.
We bought about 20 fence boards that looked brand new.
Since we didn’t want them to look glaringly obvious next to the old boards, we weathered them before hanging them on the fence.
This was the stain we used.
We weren’t careful or fancy while applying the weathered stain, because we didn’t want a perfect look.
I only remembered to take one photo while we were putting the boards up.
It’s not a perfect solution, but looks so much better now – on my friend’s side of the fence.
