There seems to always be a house project to complete. From simple projects like painting a room a new color and changing out kitchen cabinet hardware to more involved projects like bathroom and kitchen remodels. There’s also outdoor projects like adding on decks and fences or beautifying the outside of your home in some way. I actually love a home project – it’s my favorite thing to do in my free time!
Since moving into our new home this past fall, I have made a huge to-do list to personalize our home. Now, if I could just have a huge supply of money to complete those projects…. So, for now, I’m sticking to projects that can be completed easily and affordably and make a big difference!
This is my latest project – making an eyesore a little more presentable and it was easy and very affordable! Our air conditioner sits in our back yard and doesn’t make for a pretty sight. It’s not bad – but it really isn’t pretty, either. So, I decided to spruce it up with Connections™.
Connections™ is a flexible, decorative fencing product available exclusively at Lowe’s. It’s easy to install with materials you can find at Lowe’s, requires no hardware or glue, and can be reconfigured as your needs change. It can be installed without digging holes, which is often the toughest part of installing something like this!
I enlisted my hubby to help me – even though honestly, I could do it myself easily. But, what fun would that be???! First we unwrapped all the pieces and laid them out on the ground. Next, we marked where we wanted to set our connector poles and inserted the stakes into the ground. EASY! Then we went to work adding on the panels. I say “work” but it really was no work at all! They just slide right on the poles!
See! It couldn’t be easier!
Whether you’re looking for a short-term fix or a long-term solution, Connections is a flexible, affordable, low-maintenance option that is easy to install with materials you can find only at Lowe’s. And since I’m a huge Lowe’s fan, this was perfect for me! Connections™ allows you to be creative! You can combine products and reconfigure as your needs change. What’s also great is that
Connections is available in three heights, three decorative panel options and a two-sided solid panel that can be mixed and matched, stacked, staggered, used in straight runs or joined to form corners.
Connections can be used for for privacy around patios, decks or hot tubs, or to block the view from close neighbors, concealing refuse cans (or A/C units like I did here!), pool pumps, cables/utilities, or heat pumps, wood piles, kids’ play toys, or pile composting. You can even use them as decorative accents including address signs, seasonal décor, edging (around patios, driveways, walkways or gardens) and protection from the elements (wind, sun, snow); or around gardens, window wells, new plants/plantings, harmful plants (roses, thorn bushes); for kids or pets! The options are endless!
The next project I have planned for Connections is to provide a little privacy around our patio. I think it will be great!
Connections Decorative Fencing is available exclusively at Lowe’s (purchase in select stores or order online at Lowes.com
