​Give Your Outdoor Space a Beautiful Border

Quick fence-staining projects to enhance your exterior space

Fences are all about definition. They define the physical boundaries of your space as well as your aesthetic, which is on view for all to see. Whether your fence greets guests, fashions a garden, or keeps kids in and peering eyes out, it’s not hard to turn your fence into the highlight of the yard.
To freshen up your fence, all it takes is a few days and a stain you love. Here are some colour ideas to get you started. 

Greet guests with a pop of color
Staining your front yard fence a fun, cheerful colour is an easy way to make visitors feel welcomed, not walled off, when they walk up to your front door. Add some contrast to a neutral exterior by choosing a bright yet subtle pastel, like Ocean Mist, or a beautiful blue-gray like Aqua Smoke

A picture-perfect white picket fence
A white picket fence is a timeless and sophisticated complement to a traditional home or an elegant addition to a flower garden. Staining your fence with a clean, solid white will deliver a transformation that is both simple and stunning. 
To add a stylish twist to this classic look, stain posts a light gray, like Cape Cod Gray
Finally, let your creativity bloom by adding colorful flowers. Your fence and flowers will work together to enhance each other’s beauty and create a warm and inviting look. 


Enrich wood texture or grain 
If you like the natural look of a wood fence, breathe new life into it with a semi-transparent or semi-solid stain that enhances both its colour and its beautiful grain. An opaque, solid-color stain in a dark colour is an on-trend choice for tall, backyard privacy fences with wide vertical or horizontal planks. Hide the look of wood grain while keeping wood’s texture visible with a bold color, such as Midnight Blue, Ebony, or Smoky Suede.

With so many colours and finishes to choose from, you’ll surely choose a stain that compliments your home, wows visitors, and makes your fence your family’s favorite yard fixture.
