Recently I made this fun homemade picket fence to use as a background for my table décor. Our kitchen table is pushed up against the wall, and I try to use just a small section of it to brighten up the area for the coming season.

I used some pine stakes from Home Depot (just $4 for 12 stakes!) to get the fence effect. You can find them by the cement. I then used my staple gun to connect them. One at the top (just below the point) and one at the bottom.
Then I primed them and put a white wash on top of that. Once both were dry, I sanded them down a bit for a more rustic look.

Once the “fence” was done, I dressed it up with a small fabric bunting. Using pinking shears, I cut out triangles and hot glued them to some bright bakers twine.

Then I strung it (aka, used packaging tape to tape it to the back. Yup, real technical!) Oh, and I didn’t even take the time to paint the back. Lazy I guess!

Lazy or not, it turned out amazing and I’m loving it. You can use it as a center piece like I did (paint the back and stand it up in the middle if you’d like), use it to add height to already existing decorations you have, or even clip a picture to the bunting and use it like a frame.

However you choose to use it, you can switch out the bunting for the holidays, and use it all year round.

This is my new favorite item in my décor. What is your favorite décor item?
