Cemetery Fence Makeover

5645 42
I had 9 pieces of cemetery fence made out of 1/2" PVC and 1x2s and I decided to add to stone work around the fences. I started by cutting off the bottoms of the PVC fences so they would sit flat in a frame I contruced out of 2x4s. I covered 1 side of the 2x4 frames with 1x lumber that I got for a steal. This created a pocket on the other side with I inserted 2" thick foam. Also added finials to the PVC Fence. Turned out like this:



Next was the stone work. I spend 2+ hours carving the 1st one with a dremel and with 8 more to go I decided there had to be a better way. I decided to paint my grout line on with Acetone. The lines are not as nice as the dremel lines but with 108' of fence I can live with it. Here is my hand painting grout lines and the finished panel after I gave it a base coat of gray paint .




Here is a view of the backside of the panels sitting nice while they dry. I am not sure whether to paint or stain the backs of the panels.



Depending on how they turn out, the backside of the panels might actually become the front with the stonework facing into our cemetery.

Homestead, I really gotta hand it to you; it's getting harder and harder to come up with a new concept for our haunts, but you've done it, Buddy. These things look great, and I'm going to implement a variation of the fence for our place this year. Thanks!

HH, they turned out great looking. How do you intend to keep them upright? Rebar stakes?

Now, tell the truth...You CAN'T WAIT to set 'em up, right?

UNREAL, the amount of attention a Static Prop is getting here! That shows how cool it really is.
For those interested, this guy sells plastic "Skull Whistles" that, once painted, make great finials -

Homey, I predict that there will be a fair number of knock-offs of this fence popping up around America during the last half of October this year. I am DEFINITELY gonna copy this Bad Boy, what an eye-catcher. Thanks for the inspiration.
