Barn Quilt

I had this blank wall on the out side of my house, I hated it. I planted Ivey, a tree noting looked right. I decided to make a small Barn Quilt got ideas from Pinterest.
I had fun deciding, drew it out first before painting. It took about a week to complete. I allowed each coat of paint to dry overnight or several hours. Before moving on.

This is my blank wall. With the shadow of a limb from the pecan tree that is just out of sight.
We like in the country, and snakes are not my friend, I like to have the front cut close so I can see them when they visit.

My husband cut and framed the back of exterior grade plywood using wood screws.

I sanded the edges and the face side.
After I finished I realized I could have, should have, filled in the gaps on the edge with woodpuddy. But you learn from your mistakes.
