Staining your fence black

If you want elegance and sophistication in your yard, try staining your fence black and let the greenery pop! #blackfence

Well, my fence is 17 years old and the bottom sections are starting to rot out, so it won’t be too long before it needs replacing… a perfect time to test out my vision!
