Out With the Old, In With the New

The summer before we moved into our new house, five years ago, Pete and my sister, Lori, worked very hard to install the white picket fence that marks our property. We made the decision to go with a wood fence and then paint it white. I loved the more natural look, not to mention the cheaper price of the wood fence!

Unfortunately, it hasn’t held up quite as well as we would have liked. The paint slowly started chipping off, and even though we have repainted it three or four times, it’s just never looked as good as new.

Instead of trying to revive it with another new coat of paint, we decided to look into a vinyl fence. They’re definitely a bit more expensive, but we ended up going with one. I think in the long run, we’re going to be very happy with the change.

Over the fall months, one of the guys who mows our eleven acres of growing grass, Tom, worked hard at tearing out the old fence and installing the new fence, and it looks fabulous! It’s such a bright and shiny white, and best of all it looks just like new…and I think it’s going to remain that way!
