Outdoor Privacy Wall

I built this wall to give us a little privacy when our family wants to lay out and go swimming. It also hide our neighbor’s ugly fence! The length for all pieces are 8’ long for no cutting and the widths are 1x2, 1x6, 4x4 with 3/4” spacing. I used about 100 or so deck screws and stained with Thompson Waterseal Semi transparent in the color Autumn Brown. I modified the pattern from a still photo used of a fence that was on HomeDepots YouTube.

  • Hi, just wanted to commend you on the wonderful job you did!  Question though, your 1x6's looked to be treated.  If they are, aren't you supposed to wait 5 or 6 months before painting or re-staining?  How did they do when you treated with Thompson's water seal?  Did it soak in any, or did it just kinda sit there?  Again, great job with that and the chairs (I assume you built those too).  Go, Girl power!

    • Hi Paul! Thank you! Yes they were treated and they soaked up the Thompson Water seal stain just fine a few days after assembling! Here in Florida, especially in the spring we get a lot of rain. So I needed to make sure they were waterproofed immediately.
